So I'm 40 weeks today with DD2 and SO ready to give birth.
When did you go into labour/give birth?

First contraction 39w 6d and 23h!

Gave birth next day - so 40 weeks

Good luck! flowers

Ds1 40+4 (after a not so gentle sweep from my midwife), my waters broke on the way for a reduced movement check and he arrived 4 hours later.
Ds2 induced at 40 + 5 at 12pm, full labour by 6pm and baby arrived at 10.30.

Good luck Op, I hope it all goes smoothly for you.xx

First baby ... went in to labour at 40+5 following a sweep and then gave birth 40+10 confused

Sweep at 40+5 (was already 4cm it turned out!), went into labour the next morning, born that evening.

42 weeks envy <---- not envy.

Namechangemum100 Tue 05-Jun-18 21:21:31

Dc1 41+3 weeks
dC2 42 weeks following 2 sweeps

1BubblebathAddict Tue 05-Jun-18 21:26:57

1st one at 41 weeks
2nd one, I went 10 days over, midwife couldn't perform a sweep. Fast forward 8 hours to find I had placenta previa (was missed at the ultrasound) so I was rushed in for an emergency c-section.
I so wish I got to go through labour like my 1st though

Good luck with your little baby smile

Dc2 first pains started 39+6 but arrived 40weeks

Dc3 40+1 I had no signs or feelings at all it was gonna happen soon on 40.

(Dc1 was early 36+6 via csection due to pre eclampsia and breech)

PenguinJS Wed 06-Jun-18 15:10:56

This was my first:
Week 39+6 went for week 40 midwife appointment and was booked in for sweep the following week.

However, contractions started sporadically the next day and by 11pm ish became regular.

Baby born the next evening so 40+1.

LynseyLou1982 Wed 06-Jun-18 16:42:28

I was 39 weeks and 5 days and he arrived 24.5 hours later a day early

CarlGrimesMissingEye Wed 06-Jun-18 16:48:19

38+2 with number one. 6hr Labour from waters breaking (first contra action I rely came after)

39+6 with number two. 4hr labour from waters breaking - same build up as Time before.

Good luck OP

user1498549192 Wed 06-Jun-18 16:50:45

Got to term and waters broke at 37 weeks exactly. He was a very punctual baby grin

househunthappening Wed 06-Jun-18 17:00:58

Induced at 40+10, born at 40+11. Two midwife sweeps which did sweet FA but only needed the pessary.

Good luck OP, such exciting times to come but appreciate you might be feeling fed up now, so cake for you!

5 days before my due date with my first and my due date with my second. The nurse said while I was in getting a check up few days before baby arrived was to ‘jump on him’ (her words) to get things moving, though when your heavy baby low down in pelvis and just fed up waitin on baby to arrive sex is last thing on women’s minds.

Lilsquish Thu 07-Jun-18 09:59:10

41+4 - after second sweep.

All the best for your birth, nearly there now x

34+6 for labour, Emcs next day

Blondebombsite83 Sun 10-Jun-18 21:33:47

39 + 2. Had a sweep at exactly 39 and went into labour two days later. Gave birth on 39+3

NoParticularPattern Sun 10-Jun-18 21:39:14

40+12. Had a sweep at +7 which did precisely nothing but disappoint me. Booked for induction at +11, only needed the peasary and she arrived early hours of the next morning. I was SO ready for her to arrive!

NoParticularPattern Sun 10-Jun-18 21:39:39

Peasary? Not sure I like the sound of that.

pessary

BarryTheKestrel Sun 10-Jun-18 21:40:40

41+2 (at around 12:15am). DD was born 39 hours later so 41+3.

RedPandaMama Sun 10-Jun-18 21:41:59

41+5 DD finally made her appearance!

crumble9 Sun 10-Jun-18 21:47:40

DD 40+2 Just before midnight contractions started, arrived the next morning

Hope the LO doesn't keep you waiting too long OP! Those two days felt far too long 😓
