I do note that BDAG suggests a "later" idea here as well, but where
are the references to support that. Does this word ever denote
a "later" anything?<<<

The elements making up this word (EK TRW MA) would suggest "the effect of some sort of trama in being expelled". I
suggest this is the understood nuance which is behind the Greek usages discussed. In Paul's case of conversion, his
"rebirth" would more closely fit a birth which was tramatically induced rather than strictly untimely or premature.
