Did you deliver on your actual due date?

I've read that only 10% of babies are actually delivered on their due dates. With my first, I was induced 2 days after my official due date. I'm due on Tuesday with my second with no signs of labor (I thought the second one was supposed to come early?). Since I can't think about much else, I thought I'd see when everyone else delivered in relation to their due dates.

  • Well you could if it was planned that way with the doctor.. But i was late with all 3 of my kids. I am not sure if it is a genetic thing on that part or not.

  • Nope all 3 of mine were early. My 1st was born the day before his due date. The others were planned c-sections - baby #2 was born 3 wks before his due date, and baby #3 was born 8 days before his due date.

  • My oldest was born 8 minutes He was due May 1st and was born at 12:08am May 2nd. I was induced with the second and he was born at 39 weeks exactly and the third came naturally 10 days before his due date.
