What's the latest you delivered a baby?

Someone else is asking what the earliest was that you delivered a healthy baby, so I'll ask the opposite, what was your latest baby? My latest was 10 days overdue, he came on his own the day before I was scheduled to be induced. He was 9 lbs 1 oz and 22 inches long.

  • I had one at 37 weeks, 39 weeks, and my 3rd was born exactly on her due date at 40 weeks.  We'll see if this one takes longer to "cook", lol.

  • And I thought I would add, I was originally told I couldn't go past 10 days overdue, but we scheduled for 11 because it was a better day for some reason, I don't remember hwy. Then at my last appointment my doctor told me he would let me go until 15 days overdue (14 days over would have been a Sunday and I guess they don't schedule inductions for Sundays) I refused though, I already had it my mine that he was coming out one way or another by 11 days late and I emotionally couldn't handle even one more day. I was so thankful he came on his own though because I really didn't want to be induced.

  • Mine have all gotten later too, 38 weeks, 40 weeks, and 41 1/2 weeks. At this rate my next one is being induced whether I like it or not!

  • My son was born healthy at 42 weeks 5 days. I finally gave in to induction at that point.

  • My first was 4 days overdue. I was going to be talking to my doctor about induction but he decided to come on his own. My daughter was more than a week overdue and I finally went ahead and had an induction. Otherwise I don't think she would have come out at all.
