i'm 35 wks pregnant

and was wondering how early did other mothers have their kids? i'm super anxious to have mine but i figure if i come early it will only be by maybe one wk. so if you had a healthy pregnancy with no complications did you come early or right at due date.

  • Haha...Early or on-time? You should ask on-time or late since most babies come later rather than earlier if its your first. My DD was 16 days late.

  • Its normal to be anxious at this point. twice I went a few days early, and twice i went into labor on my due date.

  • With my first, I thought for sure I would go late because alot of first time moms I knew ended up being induced. I ended going into labor on June 23 and he was due July 17. He was born on June 26, the day I turned 37wks!! I was so excited, it was really hot that year and I couldnt imagine going into July lol! He was a very healthy 8lbs 21in <3 However with my second (they are 17 mo apart) I thought for sure I would go ealry again b/c I felt so huge and uncomfortable really ealry on. She ended up being 2 days late and 10lbs 2oz! I knew I shouldnt jinx myself by thinking I would go ealry again the 3rd time 17mo later (yes I had 3 under 3) and I ended up being induced after 3 days late, because I have big babies. She was 9lbs 12oz at birth. I hope this one (my 4th) will not be late!
    Anyway, Its normal to be anxious and hope to go early, just know that babies come when they want. So hang in there and try to enjoy it!
