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

Induced at 41+3, born at 41+4

Got to 39+5 before the first contractions kicked in. Of course, I could still reach 40 weeks before this baby's actually born. Hoping not though, cos it turns out, these contractions hurt! grin

Thanks ladies...I think I'm just wishful thinking!

38 weeks on the dot- but I'm still not convinced my dates were right!

40 + 10 not induced.

41 weeks exactly. My mother was positive I'd deliver early after a scare at 35 weeks. grin

42. I went to be induced at 41+5 but was in labour so they left me to it. It took another two days and an EMCS for her to appear.

38+5 and I was induced for preeclampsia.

Waters broke at 30 weeks and DS was born at 34+2.

I'm currently 34+3 and waters are in tact and no sign of labour.

Currently 33+4

Babies don't read the books so they just come when they are ready.

40.

Labour began in the evening of 39 + 6. DS born just after midnight on his due date.

40+11 was due to be induced and waters broke the day beforegrin

All happened naturally and she was born on the day of the booked inductiongrin

We are still TTC number 2 so fingers crossed for Another 43 weeks from now to be moaning about being lategrin I would be glad of a pregnancy that seems to last forever just so I can have my baby after nearly 6 years of TTC...

32 weeks. They come when they are ready, but don't wish your baby out! It's not fun having such an early baby.

42+1 here!
