Heyy.. so I was just looking around and my wifes 37 weeks now... and ive read a few threads where they said most first time babies come between 37 and 39 weeks. How many weeks were you when you had your first?

40+4.

I thought the statistic was that most first time babies came after their due date? However, none of it is an exact science unfortunately. Baby comes when they're ready super late if you're my sonangry

41. Anywhere between 37 and 42 is normal.

My first was born 12 days early, so 38 weeks.

41+6.

It really is impossible to say, baby will come when it's ready, or in my case when you're induced wink

Almost 42 weeks first DC. All my Dcs were overdue bar one who was 3 days early 😊

Where have you got your statistics from? I thought the statistics were that most first time mums gave birth after 40 weeks.

Mine was 42

Essexgirlupnorth Sat 14-Apr-18 21:28:29

emsyj37 Sat 14-Apr-18 21:29:09

37 weeks for me

OneForTheRoadThen Sat 14-Apr-18 21:29:35

36 + 6. Second came at 38 exactly.

GlitterRollerSkate Sat 14-Apr-18 21:29:36

41 + 1

40+6 and still pregnant here. Think your stats are wrong - you're more likely to be post 40 weeks with your first.
