i think we all in a way hope we will go sooner,lol. so far i am now 3 days over my original due date and counting! There's been a lot of late babies by a week or 2 in my family!

I had my baby girl 10 days ago and she was 3 days late. I dont think thats too bad considering how late some ladies go. good luck x

With my first I had her right on my due date and with my second I had him at 37 weeks

I only went 2 days past my due date, but I was induced.

I'm a first time mom and had my son 3 days before my due date. They say you usually go past your due date with your first. When are you due?

i was due nov 28th.. still pregnant.. have tried everything in the world to get labor going... nothing worked... finally getting induced tomorrow

The average for first time mothers is 5 days past their due date (remember anything within one week of your estimated due date is considered right on time and not "late"), but it sure seems that a lot of American doctors are more than willing to induce you if you don't deliver on your due date. I was 3 weeks early myself, but I was induced due to complications.

I had my first at 36 weeks. This time around my OB has put me on alpha-hydroxy progesterone shots weekly to reduce the chance of preterm birth again. Our DD was fine, btw, no complications.

I was 38 weeks exactly. I was 2 cm and 100% effaced. ( i was like that for a while though). It was my water that broke though, I had to be induced to get my contractions regular.

My first was 5 days early. I'm really hoping this one will be early too :)
