This is for all women who had their first baby, did you have your baby before your due date or after? I'm just wondering what the likelihood is of having my baby early, this is my first...................

mine was 41 weeks and 6 days. I had one more day until i got induced, and I went naturally : ) I dont think theres any rule on being late or early with first timers.

for my first and second child I had them on their due dates (not very common) for my third child i had him 10 days early. i am currently 10 days away from my due date for my fourth child.

Hi.. Im only 31 weeks so I know how you feel, any little hope of your little bundle arriving early sound great.. they say once you are past 37 weeks.. you are more than likely gonna carry past your date on your first. A friend of mine just had a little boy on Sunday.. she was 36 weeks, and that was her first.. so you never know!! Hang in there! xx

i think it just all depends on when the baby wants to come out:) i think there are just as many women that deliver 'early' with their first as their are that deliver late- you are just more likely to hear about those that carried later than their due date, just as you are to hear more horror stories of delivery versus the nice, run of the mill delivers.

hi- i just gave birth to my little son (firstborn) at 42 weeks- had to be induced because nothing was happening- i was completely closed- and ended up with an emergency c-section because the baby went into distress due to an aged placenta.

16 days late!

Well my due date was January 29th, and I'm still waiting. So I guess for my first, I'm going to be late.
