My SIL’s water broke the morning after her due date and she had the baby that night.

My mom had both my sister and I exactly on our due dates.

Everyone who I know personally was late with their first baby, and many were so late that they were induced.  (Kind of a bummer, right?)  Except for one girl  at my work who went into labor exactly on her due date, had a 2-3 hour labor at the hospital and out popped baby.  Too bad it can’t happen for everyone that way!!

I was born on my due date.  My mom was born a week or so early.  Both were easy and fast (less than 6 hours total) labors.  Here’s hoping for genetics on my side!

My water broke 12 days before my due date and he ended up being 11 days early since he was born the next day.

My son was born at 34 weeks after 4 days of labor where they tried to halt it. He was due June 19th and born May 10th. My son was 5lbs 10 oz at birth so he was a good weight. But I would rather not go through that horror again. Premature birth can be a scary thing. I am now pregnant with my second and I start 17p shots today to keep this new one in there as long as possible.

With DS (my one and only) I had an appointment with my doctor the day he was due and he wasn’t engaged AT ALL! I was told he wouldn’t come anytime soon, and that I would probably have to be induced in 10 days time and that he would be at least 9.5 pounds!!!

Well, DS was due 2nd September 2010 and my waters broke at 5am 3rd September and was born 2hr 21 mins later ๐Ÿ™‚ So he was basically on time. And a average 7lb2oz.

Alot of my friends went waaay overdue though. Every pregancy is different ๐Ÿ™‚
