At what week did you have your first DC without induction eg 38 + 5, 40+3 etc? I'm interested to see how late people went?

SkyFoCrumbo Thu 29-Oct-15 13:35:34

42+5! However, I did go in for induction at 42 weeks on the nose.

Ah Lady are you still waiting? I was actually just thinking of you and going to message to see how you were doing.
I went 5 days over, 10 days over and 3 days over.
Have you had any sweeps? One way or another LO will be here by end of next week, the ends in sight smile

Oh I completely misread your post! My first was an early CS so can t help sorry

41 and a bit weeks. All were around 41 weeks.

40+5....went into labour on the Saturday morning (40+3) he wasn't born until Monday afternoon.....had first contraction straight away after 3rd sweep! Guessing from one of the posts you are nearing or close to your date? Congratulations and good luck grin

Hi Spanish, Yep still waiting and gone past 41 weeks now. Just wondering what the likelihood is of avoiding induction lol

41+4 with both

LemonBreeland Thu 29-Oct-15 14:03:20

39 weeks with DS1. Not much help I'm afraid

NewMrsX Thu 29-Oct-15 14:28:39

I'm interested in this too. 38+5 today and so fed up already. Can't imagine how I'll feel if I go over!

sugar21 Thu 29-Oct-15 14:38:40

DD1 38 weeks + 1
DD2 37 weeks+ 3
Waters broke first with both and both were relatively quick labours.

Bang on my original due date (after 4 days in labour)

CoodleMoodle Thu 29-Oct-15 14:54:29

40+6. Was waiting on the ward for induction (pre-eclampsia) but went into labour on my own. Could even have been in labour before that. Had to have my waters broken though!

overthemill Thu 29-Oct-15 14:58:18

36 and 2 days. lucky as 2 previous labours stopped - 26 and 32 weeks

Jelly101 Thu 29-Oct-15 14:59:47

40+4 smile

FattyNinjaOwlBecameAZombie Thu 29-Oct-15 15:00:32

First 40+3
Second 40+1
Third 41+3

Ladypug Thu 29-Oct-15 15:02:59

Ok this is interesting, about 35-40% had it either where I am now or shortly afterwards, this makes me feel better

louisejxxx Thu 29-Oct-15 15:03:28

With ds I was 35+5 (extenuating circumstances), then dd was 40+5

HeteronormativeHaybales Thu 29-Oct-15 15:03:38

First was 38+0. I subsequently had two 41+ weekers, the latter of which was induced.

kaymondo Thu 29-Oct-15 15:14:04

DS1 - 42 + 2, was induced at 42 weeks but didn't work and ended up with section

DS2 - 41 weeks, elective section when I didn't go into labour naturally. I was willing to try for a VBAC but didn't want to be induced again so consultant compromised with section at a week overdue if nothing had happened by then.

Just pg with DC3 but this will def be a planned section at 39 weeks if not earlier.

VocationalGoat Thu 29-Oct-15 15:17:49

40 weeks, all three.

GiantChocButtons06 Thu 29-Oct-15 15:19:21

40+4 x
