Were your babies born on your due date?

I have a friend whose twins were just born at 30 weeks gestation.  (They suffered from Twin-to-Twin-Transfusion syndrome--they were delivered early by c-section.) They were about 2 and a half pounds each.

My own twins were born at 31 weeks but were both over 3 pounds. (They are adopted.  I did not carry them myself.)

Then my next son was born 9 days past my due date and weighed 7 pounds, 15 ounces.

My daughter was born three days prior to my due date and weighed 8 pounds, 8 ounces.

What about you?  Were you babies born before, on or after your due date?

Were you induced?  (I was not either time.)

Our oldest was born 2 days before his due date.  Our second was born 2 weeks before his due date. Our third was born 10 weeks (2 months) before her due date.

 My Kael was due on Feb 27 (give or take a day) he was born on March 10th. I was induced, because the boy was HUGE!

 Had my daughter been born at 40 week she would have been born on December 25, 1985, instead she got greedy and didn't want to get both Chrstmas and birhtday gifts on the same day so she waited...I was induced on January 21, 1986 and she was born via emergency C-section.

The one born 2 weeks early was 7lbs 12oz, so I'm sure he would've just gotten big and fat sitting in there for those extra 2 weeks.  I was glad.

 I was induced with both my daughters at 38 and 38 1/2 weeks. My oldest was due on November 7th I think and was actually born on Halloween. My youngest was due May 8th and born on April 23rd.

My first was one day late, so pretty gosh darn on time :)

My second was 12 weeks early.

My third was 6 weeks early.

My daughter had to be evicted... She was due Jan 15th and was evicted on Feb 8th after my placenta stopped functioning.
