I will be 39w3d in less than 3 hours. I have very successfully convinced myself that I will go to 41 or 42 weeks, but realistically, I could go into labor at any time now. I know when I ovulated, which was on day 18 of my cycle, but if I didn't and were going by LMP, I'd be at 40 weeks in just a few hours.
It only just occurred to me-- as I was having a very random contraction in the shower-- that 24 hours from this point in her pregnancy with me, my mother (who was going by LMP), was in transition. I was born just after midnight on the day after my EDD-- and I was her first.
Did you find that you and your mother had anything in common in terms of gestation, labor, delivery? I have heard that one's experience tends to be more aligned with her sisters than her mother, but I don't have any sisters, so all I have to go on is a mom who had Baby #1 at just barely 40w1d, and Baby #2 at 39w5d. (My brother was induced, but came out swiftly and uneventfully, so I'm pretty sure he was more or less ready to come.)
How about you, especially those of you with kids already? Did you spend about the same amount of time cooking your babes as your mother did? Or was there not much correlation?
