Wow! Thanks everyone... I think I feel better, lol. I'm trying to get in a good place about the possibility of missing the birth... she's my only sister, my baby sister, so it won't be easy, lol.

A lot of people have told me that if your periods are very regular you'll deliver more "on time." Totally held true for me! Ask your sister about that Sheena...

My ds was born 2 days after his EDD.

My dd's EDD was really estimated so we don't know exactly how 'late' or 'early' she was.

1st - 5 days after EDD
2nd - 7 days after EDD
3rd - 10 days after EDD (but he was induced, so I have no idea how long it could go on its own)

My first was 8 days past her due date.

43wks....60 hrs of on & off labor. If I were your sister, you would've had plenty of time to get here. :LOL Good luck to you & your sister!

I've always had very regular periods but I was definitely not on time with my 1st...maybe next go 'round!

My first was born on her due date. I really prepared to go a week or two or three over, since that's what's common. I didn't call the midwife 'til I was pushing :LOL

My second didn't have a due date b/c I never got a period between the two children. He was due in April or May, and he came May 15th

first due date was 9/19. got moved back to 9/14. was ordered to bedrest on 8/11 (cervix was thinned and baby kept pushing his head against it).

spontaneous labor started at 1 p.m. on 8/14, and sinjin was born at 11:03 p.m. that same day, a full month 'early'.

of course, the day before he was born, we got a new apartment, and i got the nesting urge, so i ignored my bedrest order and spent about 5 hours nesting....cleaned the bathroom, the kitchen, the floors, the windows, the walls.. :LOL

I decided to leave early. : We're leaving Sunday early early... thanks for all your input everyone!

It's so funny... when it's a client I am all "Oh, a first baby, she will be late, I'm not going to worry..." but when it's my sister I feel like I should have got there at week 36, lol.

My first was born 30 seconds before her due date!
