  • I dont think its always true-I went early at 38 weeks the first time-thank god! I hated being THAT pregnant!

  • I had my son at 39 weeks and 4 days. My sister had my niece at 38 weeks and 2 days. Everyone is different honey. Hang in there. You're almost done :)

  • Whether your a first time mom or are in a subsaquent pregnancy your baby can come any time between 37 and 42 weeks and still be at a normal gestation.

    You could be in labor so get things around and then relax!

  • My first (and only) came at 41w5d. I had to get induced, twice because the first time after 14 hours my labor stopped.
    Good luck!

  • I went at doctor always told me most women give birth within a week of their due date (a week before up to a week after)
