I just am curious. I know I will most likely go over my "estimated" due date.... but I would just like to know...

39 weeks 5 days

My mom was induced at 42 weeks with all 3 kids, so I was told by everyone (Dr. included) the entire pregnancy I would go past my DD as well.

At my last appt, 3 days before I went into labor, I was told "Not anytime soon." I went into labor 2 days before she was due and she was born the day before her DD.

My 2nd was the day after her DD.

Went into labor at 38 weeks 6 days, and DD was born right at 39 weeks. I was 100% positive about my EDD as well because I was charting and an early ultrasound to date the pregnancy matched my chart.

I checked before 37 weeks, but they were twins so I'm sure that affected it to some degree (my water broke, no contractions before that).

My singleton was born at 39 weeks 4 days.

Mom to:

Three big girls  twins.gif (10) + joy.gif (almost 9!); 

One little boy ROTFLMAO.gif(6) and a full on toddler diaper.gif  (8/12) born with TAPVR heartbeat.gif (repaired at 6 days old).
