Expecting my first, due date is 12 October. I read that on average 1st babies come about 8 days after the 280-day period the doctor calculates. I'm really curious to know how early/late others went into labour with number one!

Due on 4 aug 05. Went into early labour in early evening of 9th, in hospital around lunchtime on 10th, born around 9am on 11th.

I was induced at 40+5, according to midwife 'He weren't wanting to come outta there in an 'urry'

mine was my first child and she came 12 days late (had an induction in the end as was so knackered!)

Well my MW estimated that my due date would be the 8/10 with my dd, going on LMP. The 12 week scan said the 4/10.
She arrived on the 8/10

14 days late - was terrified of being induced and managed to avoid it.

He was a week early.

Bang on time, bless her (but it was my brother's wedding the next day so really it would have been better if she'd been late).

Piccalilli Fri 12-May-06 16:33:37

16 days after my due date - very slow induction, god only knows how long she'd have stayed in there left to her own devices

apronstrings Fri 12-May-06 16:35:38

1 week early - thank goodness i had had enough!!!

serenity Fri 12-May-06 16:37:22

8 days late (and he was the earliest!)

Maddison Fri 12-May-06 16:59:38

Mine was 4 days early

KBear Fri 12-May-06 17:05:15

16 days late, very slow induction (Piccalili are you me?!!!), emergency C-section after two days of labour.

PinkKerPlink Fri 12-May-06 17:07:53

13 days late

katiebl Fri 12-May-06 17:17:14

3 days late. Should have expected it really as it was OH's bday and the only day I didn't want him to arrive. Funny really cos midwife told me he was likely to be week or two early.
