Apparently only 4-5% of babies actually arrive on their due date. Please put me out of my misery and tell me when your babies arrived!? It will be my first.

He was born 2 days late but labour started on his due date, good luck grin

ChunkyEasterChick Fri 22-Mar-13 18:04:29

Sorry, I'd have had my 2 by now:

DD - 39+3
DS - 38+6

In my 'defence' I felt DS was due from about 36wks & he was always seemed a week bigger than DD at the same stage of pg, so he actually felt 'late' grin

mummabug Fri 22-Mar-13 18:01:37

41+3!

SeriousStuff Fri 22-Mar-13 17:46:15

Flowery any news??

Purplecatti Fri 22-Mar-13 13:35:58

40 + 11, narrowly avoided induction.
I was NOT happy and stomped about shouting about the fact it was never coming out.

Emmaw9 Fri 22-Mar-13 13:02:11

18 days early!
Good luck!

chocchoc30 Thu 21-Mar-13 10:17:08

Was due Tues 19th march and am now 2 days overdue.

FlumpsRule Thu 21-Mar-13 09:06:07

Dd two weeks late.
Ds a week early.. which was therefore a shock.
Good luck whenever it starts smile

flowerygirl I didn't get a signs at all that I was ready to go into labour until I actually did - no Braxton Hicks, no anything. Don't be disheartened, it'll happen (and if it doesn't I had a 4 hour labour after my induction - hard and fast)

Good luck!

sundaesundae Wed 20-Mar-13 23:03:21

I'm due PFB on Saturday and sat here sobbing cos I am so ucomfortable I can't sleep and I just want my baby now. I feel like I am going to be pregnant forever sad

Good luck ladies, I hope none of us go too far over, sniff!!!

Newmum2013 Wed 20-Mar-13 21:55:55

notso Wed 20-Mar-13 21:34:15

DD was born on due date,
DS1 8 days over,

DS3 39 weeks.
Good luck smile

DS 40+6
DD 38+6
Currently 35weeks with DC3 and MW has said be prepared from 37 weeks ( and I am praying it is early)

flowerygirl Wed 20-Mar-13 21:26:10

Haha yes let's race! I only know one person who had their baby on the actual due date so chances are very slim...

I fear the baby will have to be induced...don't feel ready to pop yet! Lots of braxton hicks when I go for a walk though smile

SuffolkNWhat Wed 20-Mar-13 21:08:30

39+5 so would have been 1 day old at your point!

Hippee Wed 20-Mar-13 21:08:29

DS1 - 6 days early
DS2 - 6 days late
(they swapped birthdays and due dates)
DD - 7 days early

MooMooSkit Wed 20-Mar-13 21:07:10

40 + 5 but I had a sweep on that final day that put me into labour

Thurlow Wed 20-Mar-13 21:05:59

+6. But I'm not convinced on the dates, so might have been right on time!

permaquandry Wed 20-Mar-13 21:03:46

DD1 - on time (agreed that due date was wrong)
DD2 - 1 day early

Good luck!

MoreBoober Wed 20-Mar-13 20:59:50

+6 for me

MrsVJDay Wed 20-Mar-13 20:49:50
