Im pregnant with my first and im 38 weeks on Thursday and im just wondering if im actually going to have her on her due date or earlier...maybe even later.

How many first time moms had there babies on their EDD? And if not when did you have them?


Woah.. crazy amount of replies lead to this post getting featured. I didnt expect that at all. Cool! :) Its crazy hearing the different reasons moms were induced and when they went into natural labor. This just shows me that she can and will truly come whenever she wants. Thanks for all of the replies ladies! :)

 Very few babies come on their due date. Most first time mothers go past their EDD. Keep in mind its a mid point;)

 My first came 2 weeks early. My last 2 came in the early 39th week

My first child was born 3 days after my EDD. He was born via c-section. I never went into labor, don't know how long he would have stayed in there if I didn't have a c-section.

 Personally I don't belive that babies are born late.  I believe they will be born when they are ready.  EDD is just a guide.  They start calculating from the first day of yoru last period so baby hasvn't even been conceived for approximately another two weeks but they count this anyway.  Having said that i was originally given a due date of July 18 though but it changed to July 16 as I progressed and my son was born on July 20th.
