How late or early were your first (and any subsequent) babies? Did any arrive on their due date?

I'm due tomorrow with first baby, but this is just out of curiosity, as I am a nosy so-and-so passing the time! wink

All my 5dc were early smile

Currently 40+4 with #1 and feeling hacked off and over-encumbered!

DS1 was born at 41+6. No idea when this one will arrive.

DD was originally due on the 10th, then they changed it to the 5th. She was born on the 11th (went into labour on the 10th - a very long one!), so technically 40+6 but I like to think she was almost on time grin

Late +11, didn't feel too fed up though. Induced due to reduced movements.

cheezypeas Thu 13-Aug-15 20:44:57

37+3 with DD. Currently 29 weeks and hoping for a similar result this time!

I gave birth exactly two weeks later than my due date. A whole 14 extra days of waddling around feeling like a hippo. I hated every single second of going overdue. I tried EVERYTHING I possibly could to get DS out but nothing worked, even medical induction. It ended with a c section for me.

On the plus side, having a newborn baby felt like an absolute breeze for me compared to being so hideously overdue.

BabyBNumberThree Thu 13-Aug-15 20:56:39 - 16 days overdue - 12 days overdue

3 days over for me. Both DH amd I were 3 weeks early, I was reminded of this early from both mums along with comments like oh you'll never go to full term. I nearly killed both of them. I quite enjoyed my few weeks off work before DS was born

guineapig1 Thu 13-Aug-15 21:01:08

Dc1: 5 days over
Dc2: 13 days over

In both cases though my due date had been brought forward at the 12 week scan. Just try and relax and enjoy the afternoon naps bitterly wishes she had taken her own advice

Pigzoom Thu 13-Aug-15 21:54:20

Dc1 2 days early, long labour
DC 2 10 days late, quick labour.

LorelaiVictoriaGilmore Thu 13-Aug-15 22:25:32

35+3. As much as I hated being pregnant I wish I'd made it to term!

bluishskies Thu 13-Aug-15 22:42:11

DD1 was born 1 day after her due date. But I was admitted the day before her due date.

InTheory Thu 13-Aug-15 22:44:08

I'm due my first tomorrow too! Don't think it's coming anytime soon hmm

rednsparkley Thu 13-Aug-15 22:55:03

DC1 - 2wks early
DC2 - 2wks early
DC3 - 1wk early
