when you went into labor...

how many weeks were you when you went into labor?people say since they always give ann estimated guest they say its either 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after your estimated due date.my doctor told me not to go by the ultra sound because as you get further along they subtract a week and then 2 weeks and stuff like that real confusing.i also heard that not many people always o the full 40 weeks so im just trying to get a kind of estimate by what every1 says they went into labor around even though i noe its gonna happen when she feels like popping out.thanks to all!

  • i went into labor naturally at 37w4d and had my baby at 37w5d. it less than 6hrs of labor total. i also gave birth naturally.
    most people are induced nowadays, which is sad. :(

  • With my first I was technically 41 weeks, with my second I guess it was about the same, but I think that I have a late ovulation and a long cycle, so I think that my due dates were off.

  • I went into labor 2days before my due date and had 18 hours labor and gave birth the day before my due date.. so she was born almost exactly at 40 weeks and she was born on christmas day.
    Generally the due date they give after the first ultrasound in the first trimester is supposed to be more accurate as at that stage most babies are developing at same rate.
