I have 3 girls. The 1st was 4 days early. The 2nd, I had preterm labor and was put on so many meds that I went 1 1/2 weeks over. The 3rd was born at 35w 4d.

Ive been told that first babies are usually a little bit late. My sister went 10 days over due with her son.. I went 2 weeks overdue with my first little girl.. My mom went 10 days overdue with ME (her first), My sister who is now pregnant.. is 41 weeks 4 days pregnant, our friend was 9 days overdue with her first, thats the statistics I know of.. however.. i also know ladies that went a couple days before.. or even right on their due date. Good luck.. and Congratulations!! ~Kristin~

This is my first baby and I am currently 40 weeks and 1 day. I was convinced the baby was going to arrive early as I've had pre-labour signs for 3 weeks. Oh well, guess I'll just have to be patient :)

It just depends sometime babies are early, sometimes they are late. There are studies indicating that if your mother had a history of early labor that you're a lot more likely to have an earlier labor too. This is my first so, and I am hoping I'll be a couple weeks early (as long as baby is good and healthy to come) as my dh was over 10 lb's when he was born. My mother, grandmother, and aunt (on my mothers side) all had their kids around 36-37w too (4 out of 6 of my mothers kids were at 36w -all healthy- and the other 2 kids were 37-38w, my mom and her 3 sisters were all about 36w and my aunts 5 boys were all 36-38 weeks), so we will see if I go early. Also my sil had their first baby last April and she was 36w 4ds and was completely healthy. Anyways, I think it just depends on you and the specific pregnancy. Good luck.
