I'm 33 weeks with first baby and just wondered how many weeks you ladies got to before your first labours?

42 in my case - baby will come when it wants to!

42. Went in to be induced, DS decided to get things rolling before they had a chance - could probably feel my nerves!

36 weeks first pregnancy. Small for dates, very low on amniotic fluid. Was going to be induced, but baby came naturally.

36 weeks also in second pregnancy. Not problems. I'm obviously just not programmed to go full term.

(My Mum had me 6 weeks early, so I was not surprised when I didn't get to 40 weeks)

42. Contractions started 12 days over, then stopped. Went in for induction at 14 days over.

bang on 40 weeks

39 weeks with DD1.

DD2 bang on her due date.

Don't worry Op I also had friends who had their first baby at 35 weeks, 37 weeks and 38 weeks - baby comes when they want to!
