Did anyone give birth on their due date?

So the odds of it happening are 4% or 1 in 25 births.

I don't know of a single person this has happened to.

If you had your baby on your due date, what time was it? And was it your first or subsequent babies? And was your due date fairly accurate - were your periods regular?

I'm wildly interested because TODAY IS MY DUE DATE!! For baby number 2. My periods are clockwork & before my 12wk scan I'd worked it out to be 6th Feb. So not holding out too much hope. Plus my first baby was 2 weeks overdue.

I did second time round.

I did!

A relative did.

Yes! I did, first baby. Periods were regular. Absolutely wasn't expecting it though and can attribute nothing I did to it happening.

I almost did! I went into labour 5.30am on my due date. Had my dd at 1.58am the next morning.

I did with DD1, yet to see if it happens again with DD2.

DC2 was born on his due date.

My second was born on his due date, he was born at 00:16

Both of mine were on their due dates. One at 5.30 am, the other at 6.30 am. Regular periods

I did - twice. Both DDs arrived on their due date. I'm quite proud of that completely random happening

Hope you don't have long to wait and all goes well.

Yup ten to two am that morning, the child is clever and a smartarse toogrin I love my son to bits though, he is epic, he is 21 next and i am very, very lucky with all 3 of my lovely kids...

Yes second baby, had very short cycle don't know if thats significant.

DD1 was way overdue, induced and EMCS as she was not coming out!

There were 3 of us in a ward of 4 all gave birth on EDD, MWs were all talking about it as it was so unusual.

Date was 11/11 so maybe they all wanted a memorable day, my brother still asks each year grin

16th August

Me too. Although I went into labour at tea time the night before.

SweepTheHalls Fri 29-Jan-16 16:11:12

Yes! Although she was an ELCS, so maybe not so surprising!

SheilaTakeABow Fri 29-Jan-16 16:11:28

I did for DS2. Contractions started the night before then he was born on the evening of his due date. And I've only just remembered that DS1 was born on the date predicted by the 3D scan, but that was ten days earlier than the NHS dating scan. So, very punctual, my boys.
Good luck - I was always so pleased I didn't have any waiting around

Hamsolo Fri 29-Jan-16 16:12:05

My sister and I both did.

BeautifulLiar Fri 29-Jan-16 16:13:41

Yep I did smile she was born at approx 10:20pm. I have to say approx because DH delivered her on our bed! You'd think we'd be more prepared given that it was my due date grin

There's loads of you!

HippyChickMama Fri 29-Jan-16 16:21:12

I know someone who had both of their dc on the due date. Mine were both late, ds at 42 weeks and dd at 40+4 though labour started on dd's due date.

BeautifulLiar Fri 29-Jan-16 16:31:42

The baby I'm pregnant with now is to be induced on my due date, or very close to it, so I may have another! I don't think that counts though.

VashtaNerada Fri 29-Jan-16 19:36:26

I did! Annoyingly I'd booked a meal out to cheer me up if the baby hadn't arrived by then and had to cancel.

lilac3033 Fri 29-Jan-16 19:48:14

I did! Had a sweep the day before and it all kicked off a couple hours later.

Tadpoletoatoad Fri 29-Jan-16 21:01:51

I did with DD. Very quick labour as well. DS was 14 days over due and well cooked confused
