  • I have 2 girls and they were both early. My oldest was 8 days early and my youngest was 10 days early. I had them both within hours of starting to diolate too. I've heard of some moms being 2 cm diolated and carrying the baby for another 2 weeks. Not me once I was diolated the baby was out within 24 hours.

  • My first born was 10 day late (i was 22 when i had her), my 2nd was 7 days early, and my 3 was 5 days late. The due date is more of an estimated date.

  • My first was born at 38 weeks and my second was born at 40 weeks +3days. With my second I was dilated and engaged since 36 weeks and it still took a while. Don't pay too much attention to the due date, it's only an estimation.

  • I was due with my firstborn August 5, 2006. I was 20 years old. They induced me on the 8th, but it failed. He was born 5 days late, on the 10th, after having to use Cervadil (sp?) and the Pitocin drip.

  • I had six children, first baby was right on day due. 2nd baby was 3 weeks early, 3rd baby was 2 weeks early, 4th baby was 6 weeks early, 5th baby was only a week early and 6tth baby was only a few days early. With my three babies that were considered premature, they were all winter babies and I had slipped and fell on ice believe it or not with all three. Although they were preemie they were all healthy and fully developed. Thank God!

  • My first was due on Nov. 6th then they changed it to Nov. 11th. He was born on the 7th. My 2nd was about a month early (had to be induced due to low fluid). She was due on May 24th; born on Apr. 27th. My 3rd & 4th were both day before their due dates. My 5th was 10 days early. My 6th was a month before (also induced due to low fluid) Due on NOv. 5th; born on Oct. 5th.
