Heh, so, following on from my how late did you work thread, was your first baby late? If so, how many days over?

And if yes or no, was your Mum late with her first baby? I am wondering if this kind of thing runs in families grin

Thank you!!

Yes, I went 11 days over.

My mother was induced with me 7 days over and had a tough time of it.

TheObfuscatoryOven Tue 16-Oct-12 19:43:07

Yep, went into labour at 40+8.

DM went into labour with me about ten days over.

Minty82 Tue 16-Oct-12 19:43:27

Nope, a week early. As was my mum's first baby (me), come to think of it...

PacificDogwood Tue 16-Oct-12 19:45:21

Yep, 15 days over, then induced (good experience btw) smile

No idea about my mum, but she has nothing but good things to say about her (two) deliveries.

Are you worried per chance? grin

FWIW I had 3 overdue pregnancies and one early delivery at 31 weeks for placenta praevia, so bleeding notwithstanding I think I just cook them long.

Had my first and only DC at 40+10. My mum had the three of us all between 2 and 3 weeks late.

BabyBellasMumma Tue 16-Oct-12 19:45:30

No, my 1st baby was 16 days early, waters broke and she was born after a relatively easy 7 hour labour!
My mum went 10 days overdue with me and had a very long and difficult labour.

surroundedbyblondes Tue 16-Oct-12 19:46:14

DD1 was 40 + 10 I went into labour naturally shortly after arriving at hospital for induction!

DD2 born helpfully on her due date.

DM went into labour with me 2 days before due date she claims. I was born on my due date.

emsyj Tue 16-Oct-12 19:48:53

No, my first was 19 days early - DMum's first baby (my DSis) was born at 28 weeks.

ATourchOfInsanity Tue 16-Oct-12 19:50:12

16 days over due sad Not fun. She was 10Ib 1oz and I keep wondering how much of that was put on in those 16 days Mum and I both had EMRCS.

wannabedomesticgoddess Tue 16-Oct-12 19:50:22

I was 10 days over with DD.

My mum was 10 days over with me. Never connected the two before.

My brother was 8 days early. So fingers crossed the link continues, I am so ready to have this baby smile

nananaps Tue 16-Oct-12 19:51:04

my first was 14 days early

i was 3 days late apparently.

WhispersOfWickedness Tue 16-Oct-12 19:53:17

Yep, 14 days over. My mum also went 11 days over with me.

Nuttyprofessor Tue 16-Oct-12 19:56:10

7 weeks early, weighing 7bs 4 oz. DM was 3 weeks late.

DefiniteMaybe Tue 16-Oct-12 19:57:00

No 6 days early.

DefiniteMaybe Tue 16-Oct-12 19:58:04

my mum was 2 weeks early with her first baby (me)

JollyJackOLantern Tue 16-Oct-12 19:58:19

Yes for me, 6 days.

My mum was induced with her first (me) at about 2 weeks over.

Chubfuddler Tue 16-Oct-12 19:59:46

Yes. Eight days. My mum was 2 weeks late with her first and was induced, as was his first baby.

MaBaya Tue 16-Oct-12 20:00:23

Oh yes. 2 weeks 5 days past due date!

QueenofNightmares Tue 16-Oct-12 20:05:47

8 days over, 3 hour labour 10lb 4 baby I felt rather smug to be honest watch this one be late, huge and take forever! grin

Don't think mum went over with any of hers but we were all big babies! 9lb 6, 11lb 2 and a rather eye watering 12lb 9.

ScooseIsLooseInTheHauntedHoose Tue 16-Oct-12 20:08:09

No my dd was 5 days wary (induced due to pre eclampsia) and my twin and I were 3 weeks early smile

ScooseIsLooseInTheHauntedHoose Tue 16-Oct-12 20:08:23

Early not wary

lambethlil Tue 16-Oct-12 20:11:12

13 days late- and even then induced.

wantingout Tue 16-Oct-12 20:12:17

5 weeks early with DC1. Suspected placental abruption, failed induction, EMCS. Nightmare. My mum was also 5 weeks early with me, but that was spontaneous labour, about 6 hours.

My midwives after DC1 was born were all of the opinion these things run down the maternal line; the consultant pooh-poohed it though (although I would note that I've never reached a due date with any of DC1-4, and neither has my sister with hers).

ILoveOnionRings Tue 16-Oct-12 20:13:16

Yes for me too, 10 days late.

Was in slow labour 2 weeks before due date, in a car crash 7 days later, DS must have thought not going out there yet smile
