  • im a new mommy too, and i thought i would have her early, now not so much, i think i thought that way because i wasnt ready at the time, no dipers, no furnature, but now that i have it all ready i think she may be late, so dont worry

  • I'm a first timer, due 10/2 and I have the same fear but I have reason behind it. I might actually be farther along. They never did measurements at my first U/S so they have no idea what is going on. I'll just take it as it comes.

  • im a first time mom and due 8-19...i had the same feelings when i was about 25wks and theyve gone away...i think it was because this is so new to me...i havent felt these changes in my body before and everything scared me...i used to go to the hospital everytime i didnt feel right,thats why i have insurance! no one made fun of me...but now that im so close im afraid im gonna have her late! i still call my doctors office nonstop everytime i feel funny but its just cuz ive never done this before and that scares me!

  • You never know, but it definately sucks to think about it and then go past your due date! My first son was 3 wks early, so I really thought my 2nd would be early too. She was 2 days late so I wss definately dissappointed. I thought FOR SURE my 3rd would be early, I kept feeling like it was going to happen any moment. I was induced after being 3 days late!! So the 2 that I thought I would be early with were both late!

  • My DD can 4 days earlier than her due date.. my brothers son came 8 days earlier. My friends son came a month early...

    BUT.. my other friend has 4 kids.. all of whom were about a week or two late. you never know when they will come, but when they do... :).
