Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Clicky Poll: When did you deliver?

Hi Ladies - I'm lurking from November 2012 BMB.  It seems like everyone has an opinion about when the first baby is born in comparison to their EDD.  Some say "you're always late".  So I thought I'd conduct my own research!

I know my baby will come when he's ready, I'm just curious.  TIA :-)

  • For my first little one, my due date was moved up 3 different times by a total of 2 and 1/2 weeks, and i still delivered 2 weeks before the earliest due date. All natural, water broke and within a half hour he was here. Hoping this one comes early too, just not to early that we have to worry about how healthy he will be.

  • I was one day late, water broke (actually had been leaking for a few days prior)

     

  • she decided to come 3 days after her due date. it was actually perfect timing because my mother in law was hoping she would wait to be born until she was back from being out of the country. she was able to make it from the airport to the delivery room no more than 10 minutes after our baby arrived! 
  • First baby was at 26 weeks. My other 2 were consider  full term.

  • 41w4d... Scheduled to be induced that morning (8am), but went into labour on my own at 3am.

    If it helps, my midwives said that 80% of women who get an induction date, go into labour on their own that day.

    This is what happened to me! DS1 was born at 40w6d, it was a Thursday, we had scheduled an induction for the following Monday, and I went into labor that night.

  • I was 41 weeks, exactly! I was scheduled to be induced later that morning and my water broke at 12:51am! Layla Rose made her arrival at 11:53am.. never again do I want to do that.. lol I got Mirena put in at my 6 wk pp checkup. :D DH wants another one, so I told him MAYBE he can convince me otherwise in a few years. Otherwise..im very content with my beautiful girl :)

    Besides, he has one who will be starting college (my Step son is 14) by the time Layla will start kindergarten..so a lot may change in say..5 years when Mirena needs to come out.

  • I said SS, because I delivered 9 days early, but he was born measuring 40 or more weeks (not just size, but also skin, and alertness, etc.)

    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker image image image
  • I don't think your poll isn't going to be very accurate because scheduled C/S and inductions will throw it off.  You would probably be better off polling only FTMs who went into labor naturally.

    FWIW, I had DD at 41+2 via scheduled C/S after she flipped breech at 40 weeks.

    My advice to you would be to just plan on the full 42 weeks of pregnancy so as not to get fixated on any one date and if you deliver before then it's an added bonus :)

    GL!

  • Went into labor at 31w/6d. Water broke at 32w/2d. Had him at 32w/3d, at 12:04 a.m. Hopefully, the one I'm 23w/5d pregnant with now will come AFTER 37 weeks! I so badly want to experience what it seems everyone else has experienced--a full-term baby! I'm doing the 17p injections to hopefully make that happen! Ladies who've had a *spontaneous* (not induced) premature singleton birth and are pregnant with a singleton now, go to the March of Dimes website and do a search there for "17p" or "alpha hydroxyprogesterone caproate"! It could let you have a full-term birth next time!!
  • No offense, but 4 days is not early. Full term is 37 weeks, so you were full term.

  • You're baby wasn't early. (No offense.) Full term is 37 weeks, so yours was totally full term and so were you and your brothers.
  • Yes, with medical intervention, a baby can definitely survive at 26 weeks. Although of course the later in the pregnancy that a baby is born, the better.
  • 40 weeks exactly.  She was born on her due date.



  •  i have had eight kids and my eight one i had 4 weeks before her due date

    Sbevmc has good advice, planning on the long haul may keep you from going crazy if you don't go early.

    FWIW, I was induced at 39 weeks with DD1 due to size, her head and my pelvis. I also have a bone/joint issue.

    I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.
