  • Got there eventually after the false starts and it was early but most welcome!

  • Lots of false starts – got there in the end.

  • daughter 1 early a week
    daughter 2 on due date!

  • Both my girls was at 39 weeks.

  • My son came 5 weeks early and my daughter came 3 weeks early.

  • My sister’s pregnancy was 40+1
    My sister in law’s pregnancies were 40+6, 40+3, 40+6

  • 1st- 39 W + 6 Days
    2nd- 41
    3rd- 41 + 3
    4th- 40 + 2
    So majority were over due date.

  • First bub was 2 weeks early, I was induced due to high blood pressure. Second was 2 days before given due date. Doctors give you a due date but it is only an estimate, they usually say you can go 2 weeks either side of the date they give.

  • It will be interesting to see what happens with my boy due in December 2015 :)

  • Babies 1,2,3,4 one week early, baby 5 one week over, baby 6 one week early

  • well my first born was early and my 2nd two were happier to stay in. my boy didn’t want to come out at all lol

  • Only child- boy. Born 37 weeks

  • Hopefullyheidi, your baby was in the normal weight range.

    They do not always calculate the due date right. I know a lady who was told the 1st week in July. She was so big that had she not gone into labour the beginning of the 3rd week in June the Obs. was recommending inducing her. Another one was told the first or second week in May, she reckoned around Anzac Weekend – she was right.

  • My first pregnancy I went into labour on my due date and then had my daughter the next day. My second pregnancy I had a C-Section 2 weeks before my due date.

  • My daughter was born at 39 weeks and 6 days. Just one day earlier thus.
