  • :) don't have exact numbers for you

    I had one the day before his due date, one at 37w5d weeks, and one at 36w2d.

    one method I've used (but didn't work with the last one due to other circumstances) was the full moon. my cycle always followed the moon, I ovulate at the new moon, period at full moon, so I figured my babies would be born on the full moon and the first 2 were.

  • My first came the day before her due date, but I think my doc put me into labor when he checked me. My second came 6 days before her due date

  • my daughters original DD was June 23rd then they moved it to July 3rd, i had her July 17th.. if this is your first you will most likely go over your DD... but this questionj is like so many others there is no way to tell, everyone is different just pray that baby stays in until it is ready... be patient :)
