Just wondered how many of you had your babies on due dates?

How many had babies early/late with no medical reason?

I had induction with DD at 39 +5.

DS was born on his due date. I'm currently 38+5 with DS2, all being well he will be born by c-section at 39+4.

Dd1 was a week early
dd2 came on her due date (by my dates not the hospitals/scan dates).

dd1 40+11
dd2 40+8
dd3 40+3
ds 40+10

all natural, no inductions

there's another Mum at school who had all 3 of her ds on their due dates, none induced. She is very organised though hmm

[gin] at the organised lady!

Marne were the scan dates a lot different to your own dates?

I don't know many peole who have had babies early without any medical reason, but know soooo many that have gone 'overdue'.

Hi PJ grin I know, it is so close, has gone really quick! Will definitely post (or get DH to) once there is news. All ok with your bump?

PavlovtheWitchesCat Fri 30-Oct-09 15:34:12

10 days earlier than edd, natural, although was probably in response to being threatened with induction due to growth issues.

PlantASeedWatchItGrow Fri 30-Oct-09 15:37:56

So it really is an ld wives tale that your second/third stc will be earlier.

Pinkjenny Fri 30-Oct-09 15:38:10

Not too bad, feeling very big and fed up now, and sick of people pointing out how huuuuuuuuge I am. Dd went into her own room for one night before I brought her back into our room. Dh despairs.

Hey ho.

<apologies for hijack>

Oh my goodness, shot me now! My spelling is terrible today. blush

gillybeanie Fri 30-Oct-09 15:41:58

DS was 12 days earlier than edd and DD was 12 days late no induction

But oh no...mother nature gets involved grin

PlantASeedWatchItGrow Fri 30-Oct-09 15:49:51

DS was 4 days late officially, but I did go into labour on the date I'd calculated according to my ovulation (he was born the next day though).

I only know of one baby actually born on their due date. His mum was one of those incredibly smug 1st-time pregnant people who assured us all that it would all go smoothly and perfectly because she was doing her breathing etc. How we all laughed. Then she turned out to be right.

Grendle Fri 30-Oct-09 20:03:26

dc1 40+11 (after induction at 40+10) -by LMP date
dc2 39+6 spontaneously -based on ovulation date

dc3 currently cooking at 38+2 -based on approx ovulation date

ChasingSquirrels Fri 30-Oct-09 20:09:46

ds1: 37
ds2: 36+6
both natural

girlsyearapart Fri 30-Oct-09 20:24:00

dd1 on due date. Was having quite severe contractions in swimming pool changing rooms as thought would go for a swim to ease back ache.. After all the baby wasn't going to come on the due date was it?? hmm

dd2 38 + 2. Waters broke then contractions came thick and fast.

wheredidiputit Fri 30-Oct-09 21:11:34

dd1 @ 39wks - Normal

DD2 @ 40 + 8wks - induced

ds @ 41 + 6wks - induced

and to be fair apart from ds i have erratic cycle and had to go by hospital measurements as with both dd's I hadn't had an AF for 6mths when I fell pg.

I could be certain with Ds as we had only had sex once since having DD2 9mths ealierblush.

PacificWerewolfwoohood Fri 30-Oct-09 21:16:05

DS1 40+15 induced
DS2 31+3 emCS due to placenta praevia
DS3 40+10 VBAC grin[v proud]wink
DS4 - who knows?? Hoping for another VBAC smile
