I am due Oct 1 and I have a feeling I'll probably give birth at the end of September... which is scary because September seems so much sooner on the calendar than October! I'm trying to remain zen about the pregnancy but am a very nervous about being able to carry to term, having a safe/healthy labor, etc.. Does anyone else think they might not deliver exactly in Oct?
anyone think they'll give birth in Sept or November?
No idea! I'm interested to see though bc I have 2 EDDs, depending on if you go my LMP or conception. 9/29 and 10/03. I honestly don't care when it's born, but it'll be kind of interesting to see when it's born in comparison to those two dates :) My other kids were born at 40+5 & 40+1 based off of LMP EDD's, so if I *had* to guess I would say I have an Oct baby baking.
Well, my due date was changed from Oct 2nd to Sept 23rd so I am guessing I will definatly deliver in Sept. I really thought she was just measuring large in the begining but she is still measuring the same so my date is definatly Sept 23rd. I am not comfortable with going more than a few days overdue
My guess date is Oct 18 based on conception (a week sooner based on LMP, which I don't give much thought to, since I know when I conceived). Depending on the pregnancy wheel, baby is estimated anywhere from Oct 18 - 22. The average length of pregnancy for a first time mother is 41w5 days, and statistically, I'm much more likely to go after my EDD than before.
My mom went 40weeks5 days with my sister and 39w6d with me (both based on LMP), so I'm probably less likely to be a super "long cooker." Still, I could easily go to November. That is fine with me too. I just would prefer to skip giving birth on October 31. Plus, with a homebirth, I'd hate to be pushing out a baby when half the neighborhood is ringing our doorbell for candy.
This cracked me up.
I'm due 10/9, but since it's twins, they say it could be earlier than that. My son was due 9/18 and was born 9/24 (and was 10 lbs 1.6 oz), so I know I can keep a lot of baby in there for a while...I hope they stay in past his birthday. I'd like to avoid their birthdays all being right on top of each other...although I'm not sure why that feels so important to me! So, I guess we could be September...but I'm hoping for October.
