    My baby was born two days past his due date via an induction. I initially held off on getting an epidural to see if I could handle things without it, but finally broke down and got one while at 4cm dialation as my back and the periodic dialations were becoming increasingly painful. The whole labor process took 15hrs. With baby’s head being kind of big (15 cm I think it was) he had to be “helped” out with a suction cup, plus I ended up with a tear down there that had to be stiched up.

    @Ashley_P:  my last one was 3 days over due- he had complications because my water broke three days earlier and the maternity ward sent me home sayin i just peed myself.. he had a lung infection because there was not amnoitic fluid protecting him.

    My mom delivered my sister on her due date.  She had a prenatal appointment on the morning of her EDD and the doctor decided that she was far along enough to strip her membranes.  She did that and then sent my mom over to the hospital.  My mom knew she wouldn’t be able to eat for a while so she stopped by a fast food restaurant and ate a burger before checking in at the hospital.  My sister born by 7pm that evening.

    @asianyoushi:  That’s terrible, not to mention negligent, on the hospital’s part. They should be able to tell the difference between urine and amniotic fluid! I would be furious.

    Anyway, I can’t vote yet because LO is still cooking in there. But I was born 4 days late.

    Me, my brother AND my sister were ALL born on out due dates!

    Must be very very rare, though, as they were all talking about it in the hospital when the youngest was born!
