For fun and wondering reasons really.. How many weeks were you when you went into labour. Were you expecting to come early? Induced? Differ from the other labours you had?

41 weeks but had a sweep 2 days before. EMCS in the end for failure to progress. DD did not want to come out!

40+13. After 4 sweeps and god knows how many remedies I gave up and let the midwife book the induction and went into labour then next day, the day before my induction.

39 weeks. Labour was 14 hours from waters breaking to baby appearing.

So glad he was a week early....his due date was my birthday!! I'm not sharing that with anyone :D

issypiggle Fri 05-Apr-13 01:03:30

39, was induced due to high blood pressure. sad , least i didn't have to panic as to whether or not there was 29 days in feb that year.

FuckThisShit Fri 05-Apr-13 01:05:29

40 + 5

SchroSawMargeryDaw Fri 05-Apr-13 01:08:21

Induced at 38 weeks because of numerous problems. They started with the crap pessary things and I got put on the drip about 3 days later. He was born 14 hours after the drip went up and about an hour after I finally got to 5cm! I was still throwing up even as I was trying to push!

24 weeks so far with number 2 and haven't had any sickness yet, hopefully it stays that way!

MirandaWest Fri 05-Apr-13 01:12:38

DS born at 38+3 naturally although they would have induced if he hadn't come along when he did.

DD born at 40+4 again naturally
