Currently 36weeks and have been told by most that first timers go over. Would just be nice to hear of when your first babies made an appearance.

First ones are later by about a day on average. There's not a lot of difference in the actual stats

Went into labour on due date, born 2 days later.

Dc2 however was 10 days late.

41+1 by scan dates but my own correct dates 41+5. I was surprised as everyone in my family gets induced so thought I had a few more days

OdinsLoveChild Mon 10-Apr-17 16:52:53

A week early despite fitting the typical text book criteria in every way grin

FaFoutis Mon 10-Apr-17 16:54:05

37 weeks.

Zoe1983 Mon 10-Apr-17 16:54:14

39 + 6

AllllGooone Mon 10-Apr-17 16:55:08

37 weeks. Second and third were 41 weeks

duskonthelawn Mon 10-Apr-17 16:58:49

11 days overdue, only the threat of induction brought DD out grin

WhingingTulip Mon 10-Apr-17 16:59:51

Mine was a week early. Rest were a week late, dead on time and the other two were induced at 35 and 38 weeks. My granddaughter was born two weeks ago and a week and a half overdue. My niece was 17 days overdue.
