went into labour with 3 of mine, and sorry about this but they got later each time. 10 days, 11 days and then 17 days, how late were yours?

sounds exactly like me! 2 late babies and this one due in 10 days. It's measuring 4 weeks bigger than dates but I'm still convinced it'll be late. (My mum had 8 children and every one was induced after the due date!) maybe it's a hereditary thing? were you a late baby?

My two were both born 8 days late so I'm convinced I'll go over with this one. Only difference this time is a different father but I'm not worried - they come when they want to come as far as I'm concerned! (I'm also measuring 2 weeks bigger but I was quite large to start with!).

all three of mine have been late, the first one i was induced as that was policy, the second two i refused and they turned up 15 and 17 days late

i am expecting no 4 and i am sure it will be late too, my mum went a month overdue with me, so i think it can be hereditary too.

ds1- induced early
DS2- a week early, natural
DS3- a week late, natural

ergo there is no telling what these babies will do!

DDs 1&2, both exactly a week late and weighed 7lbs and 7lb 5.
DD3 last year, a day early and was 6lbs 10. I was in and out of hospital in the days leading up to her arrival and one nurse said that as the other 2 were late, she would be too. She arrived the next morning!
