  • I was one day early.
    Have sex, go on long, long walks, and do squats. Only do about five squats at a time, use a counter top as support to help you back up, and don't strain yourself. Don't do them if you're high risk or restricted from excersise.

  • I was 10 days late with my firstborn. I had to be induced. I was also induced with my other two, was a few days overdue with them as well. Good luck! Congrats!

  • Unless you are over 42 weeks, technically, you aren't overdue.

    I was 40 weeks and 2 days. I went into labor on my own. I have know people that go to 43 or 44 weeks and then go into labor. Baby WILL come, I promise.

  • I was four weeks early with the first and three weeks early with the second.

    My husband was the second child and was 14 days over due. His older brother was actually 2 days early.

    My MIL says that hubby was born late and has been late ever since. So true.

  • LOL My husband is just barely on time for everything. I'll start waking him up about a half hour before my doctors appointment and he'll get up 10 minutes before we have to be there. In 5 minutes, he gets completely dressed, teeth brushed and goes pee. It's a good thing we only live 5 minutes from my doctors office!
