I’m not pregnant, but every single person I know was late with their first baby.

ETA: Oh, I should add except for my mother when giving birth to me. I was due Sept.5 but her doctor was going to be away on vacation that week. She didn’t want another doctor delivering me so they gave her a c-section 2 weeks early. 

(Something along those lines, I’m a little fuzzy on the details)

I was due April 22nd, went into labor the evening of the 23rd and my daughter was born at 5:59 AM on April 24th. I agree with previous posters that most first time babies are late- seems the average is around a week or so..

I never had a child, but I DO know that my mom was 4 days late with me.  I was due May 11th and she had me on the 15th (12:22 am).  So, not too bad.

I was 17 days late with my first (long story on why they let me go that far overdue) But most of the time they will not let you go past 2 weeks late.

I’ve never been pregnant but from my experience with people I’ve known I’ve seen two weeks early, a month and a half early, right on time, and a few days late.
