I had another antenatal appointment last night and my midwife suggested I’d probably go over the 40 week mark – possibly even go 41 weeks due to the fact this is my first baby. Just curious how far along other mummies were when their first baby entered the world? Thanks.

  • My daughter was born at 40+3. Was a really long labour too.

  • My first was 10 weeks early and delivered by emergency c-section.

  • 4 days over for me. I was induced because my waters broke 2 days past my due date but I didn’t go into labour on my own.

  • I went 10 days over with my first baby, i was induced. He was 8 pound 14 ounces :)

  • First baby was induced 2 weeks before due date because of high blood pressure. Second baby came 4 days after due date…..

  • 41 weeks! How did you manage? My first was one day before the expected due date. My friend’s first was 3 weeks early… they’re all different. The obs did tell me I’d have a baby in a week… 2 weeks later I was still waiting…so they can get it wrong

  • My first was 1 week early (2nd 1 week late, 3rd 3 weeks early)

  • My daughter arrived 40 weeks + 4 days.

  • my first I was given two due dates, one week apart. My daughter arrived on the second due date. so I guess she was born on her due date lol…
    my second was born 41 weeks induced.

  • got induced by choice 4 days after

  • Hate when midwives and doctors do that! No one can say for sure. I was 16 and I went into labor at 38 weeks! After the dr told me I’d likely go over.

  • My first baby was born 41 weeks but had to get injuced 2nd was born 39 weeks and 3rd baby had to come 1 week and 3 days early due to stress( high blood pressure and protein in urine) all 3 babies Wer and are as healthy as anything and am thankful

  • 38 weeks 5days via induction then emergency csection. My sister was 41 and 5 days via induction and emergency csection . My SIL 40 weeks to her exact due date assisted birth.

  • My first was born on his due date, second was 4 weeks early and my twins were born @ 37 weeks as I was induced

  • Both my baby’s were two weeks over so about 42 weeks
