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.

MadameJosephine Wed 20-Mar-13 18:29:06

DD came at 39+6!
Good luck

MikeChoccyCoatedLitoris Wed 20-Mar-13 18:29:07

Dc1 2 days early
Dc2 2 days late
Dc3 13 days late.

Jk393 Wed 20-Mar-13 18:38:46

First came at 40+15 waiting for second currently 40+6

emsyj Wed 20-Mar-13 18:39:35

DD1 37+1
DD2 40+2

<unhelpful>

grin

crochetcircle Wed 20-Mar-13 18:41:05

Not what you want to hear, but dd1 40+16, and dd2 40+14.

Both were induced due to being overdue.

Jayne266 Wed 20-Mar-13 18:59:42

Mine came 4 days late

Fakebook Wed 20-Mar-13 19:52:56

Dd - 2 weeks late and had to be induced

DS - I was in labour on my due date and he was born at 2.47am that night. A couple of hours early and he would have been born on his edd smile

My dsis had her dc3 on his due date. Her first two children were 2 weeks and a week overdue. It can happen! Good luck!

My DS was 40+15

jasmine31 Wed 20-Mar-13 20:05:57

2 days late. The longest 2 days ever. Good luck.

QueenOfCats Wed 20-Mar-13 20:07:55

39+6

15 days late.

18 days late..good luck!

cupcake78 Wed 20-Mar-13 20:14:03

5 days late

DS arrived on his due date.

FoofFighter Wed 20-Mar-13 20:20:15

dc1 10 days over
dc2 16 days over

although I had no idea of firm dates, not even rough ones really blush

I have this (probably unfounded!) theory that this one will be roughly on the EDD as we know all the dates, conception and LMP etc so therefore (problems aside) it should be quite an accurate estimate?

cuppateaanyone Wed 20-Mar-13 20:20:39

12 days late and I was induced.

CognitiveOverload Wed 20-Mar-13 20:20:54

Due date smile

KLou111 Wed 20-Mar-13 20:26:19

Everything mildly started at 1pm day after due, was in hospital by 11pm, our son born following morning at 4.25 smile
Good luck xx

ladymia Wed 20-Mar-13 20:27:58

Mine was due 5 days ago, still waiting. No signs it's happening soon either.

MortifiedAdams Wed 20-Mar-13 20:32:21

OohShinyChocolateHollowBunnies Wed 20-Mar-13 20:43:37

40+6 with my first and still waiting!

DD1 - 2 days before due date

DD2 - 5 days late!

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

Hi flowery - I'm also due tomorrow and impatient cos at each scan I was told to expect her early... race you?

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

+6 for me

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

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

Good luck!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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)

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

DD was born on due date,
DS1 8 days over,
DS2 38 weeks,
DS3 39 weeks.
Good luck smile

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

Sending lots of luck. I'm due on Monday and praying he or she will arrive soon

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!!!

BarmeeMarmee Wed 20-Mar-13 23:06:09

DC1 - 2 days early by my dates (3 days late by theirs)
DC2 - due date grin

Good luck!

WandaDoff Wed 20-Mar-13 23:07:46

IroningBoredDaily Wed 20-Mar-13 23:08:19

Dd1 - 14 days early
Ds - 7 days early
Dd2 - 6 days early.

All mine were quick, 2 hr births. Last two were born at home. smile

WhyMeWhyNot Wed 20-Mar-13 23:08:45

39+6
39+2
40+9

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)

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

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

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

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

18 days early!
Good luck!

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.

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

Flowery any news??

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

41+3!

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

FortyFacedFuckers Fri 22-Mar-13 18:16:06

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