I'm just curious. They say first babies are often late but perhaps not? I'd love to hear your stories.

Day before due date! Very efficient of DS as it was the day my m/l started following 6 weeks of annual leave!

2 days after my due date early morning but went into labour at night at 40+1 so didn't have long to wait smile

Mws kept telling me that first babies are always late but almost everyone I know went longer past their due date with dc2.

8 days over with first, was induced with second and third came a day before her due date. I was so used to going over I refused to believe it was labour and arrived at hospital 8cms dilated.

Poledra Mon 29-Oct-12 12:53:30

8 loooooooong days late.

OneOfMyTurnsComingOn Mon 29-Oct-12 12:54:04

Only just over 24hrs late. I think he was trying to get here on time!

Jollyb Mon 29-Oct-12 12:58:43

Induced at 41+5 and gave birth at 42 weeks exactly

OneHandFlapping Mon 29-Oct-12 12:58:50

On it. It just felt like 2 weeks late, thanks to Mum and sisters constantly saying "Oh, our family always give birth 2 weeks early."

DCs 2 &3 were 2 weeks early.

LoosingBattle Mon 29-Oct-12 12:58:50

10 weeks early. Will pack my hospital bag earlier next time!

SwissArmyWife Mon 29-Oct-12 14:40:36

Two and a half hours before her due date smile
