#1 = 40 weeks 4 days

#2 = 41 weeks

#3 = 41 weeks 4 days

Twins = 39 weeks 4 days

#6 = 41 weeks 2 days (only UC, but I didn't allow any inductions etc with the others)

My first baby I went to 41 weeks, 3 days, he was 8lbs 6oz..  Second, 42 weeks, he was 9lbs 6oz.

Really its just that due dates are an estimate and that everyone's body is a little different and as frustrating and uncomfortable as it may be its okay and there is nothing wrong with it. If you were to go over 43 weeks that might be cause for concern but otherwise not. If you have menstral cycles that run longer than 28 days then your due date could be off if you used the first day of your last period to calculate it since this is based on you having ovulated two weeks after your period. However if your cycles averaged say 36 days long your due date would be eight days later than the standard calculation and so on. So the 40 weeks is based on the 38 weeks the baby is in the womb plus the two weeks prior to ovulation.

I am at 42+2 & its all an emotional/mental game at this point.  It helps to see that other mamas have gone really "late" & have had healthy babies and births.  I am risked out, so we will be having another UC this time.  Baby #2 was UC, but she was born at 38 weeks.
