I haven't had my baby yet...my cousins all had c-sections schedule but one...she went into labor actully on her due date which I heard is very very rare. I heard a wives tale today that girls are always late but boys are on time. I thought it was a crock but intersting. though my mom had my older brother at 39 weeks and 5 days and I was 42 weeks and 2 days. So I was two weeks late but...I don't kow? then I heard wife tale that your first is always late? I think it really doesn't matter its all up to your body and the baby's!!! but I want mine early...I am having a boy in June we will see. :)


mommybabyboy21 - March 13

oh and the cousin that had the baby natural had a boy :)

I want my girl to come out at exactly 38 weeks.. I am uncomfortable and anxious for her to be here already- to bad we can't pick there birthday!! :o).. 10 more weeks for me.

Interesting..lol Well, I am having my first and it's a boy, I am currently 31 weeks and 2 days.I think these last few weeks are gonna draggg!!! :)

OH rkissy are they ever! lol! It sucks, more pain, less sleep, more hurtful movemtns, less comfortable positions...and the anxiousness of a new baby coming....its gonna feel like forever! But just think about something your looking forward to in the summer. like a wedding or something, and lil baby will be attending with you...so it doesnt make it seem to far! It works for me hehehehe! Ive heard that boys tend to come sooner than girls...thats what Ive heard I dont know how much truth there is to that...

My first is due in June, but for at least the past three generations on my mom's side of the family, first born's are always early. I am hoping I follow the same trend... Also, these early first born's were all girls, so the wives tale about girls being late can't be true!
