How early or late was your first child born?

I'm just hitting 39 weeks pregnant and my son is due July 3rd. My last appointment (June 19th) my doctor said I hadn't begun to dilate yet but my cervix was thinning out I guess? And she said he could come as late as July 10th.. but that's just a guess. So I'm just wondering how late or how early you had your first born? I hope this made sense? Lol I wanna know when he might come out!! Even tho I know there's no telling when and everyone is different, it will keep me occupied.

  • My son was due March 21st and I had him March 27th - so almost a week "late" (really my estimated due date was a week early!).

  • My first's due date was May 1st. He was born at 1208am on May 2nd. So he was eight minutes late. lol

  • my first was born 4 days early from the due date my docs gave, and 1 week before the date my period calculated. my second was born on her due date (calculated from lmp) but 1 day early according to docs.

  • My first was born 30 minutes before her due date. There were no signs of labor at my last appointment the week before she was born.
