    I was about 20 lbs overweight before getting pregnant with my daughter, then I gained 50 lbs. I had her within the 40th week. The 40 week thing isn't based on any kind of study by the way - the real average gestation for a woman is 41 weeks and 1 day. Also remember that the first two weeks of the 40 weeks you aren't really pregnant and it's completely normal if you don't go into labor even up to 44 weeks. It just depends on your body and the baby. People freak out too much about when their babies are born I think instead of just letting them come when they come.

    There wasn't an option for my answer: yes, I'm overweight and no, it didn't cause me to be overdue. :-)

    yes I'm overweight - no it didn't cause me to be overdue. I don't think being overweight has anything to do with it. Some kids are just late.

    I couldn't vote because I WAS overweight technically but I went into labor ON the earliest due date.
    I was told by one doc not to gain more than 25 pounds...and I gained 40...then I lost it all in 6 months. LOL I say, screw the doctors :P~
