No advice but I can tell you that I've had it for 6 weeks or more for each of my kids. And I've had different labor lengths with each one so there isn't a definite pattern I can tell you other than yes, I had them with all. Some came before due date, one came on due date, and some came after due date. Some lasted 5 hours, some lasted 7-8 hours. Only one was induced though so I don't really count hers.
