How far along were you when you gave birth?

I found out that only 5% of babies are born on their due date(40 weeks after conception). Why does a due date even exist then? lmao...
Anyhow, I'm trying to see if its more common to give birth early or late, and by approximately how many weeks/days.

***Posting this in both pregnancy and 0-12 months forum :)

  • i was induced at 39 weeks with my daughter
    with my son tho i was almost 41 weeks before he decided to come .
    if i wouldnt had been induced it probably would had been the same for my daughter
    i was induced with her tho because i needed meds during labor .
