No inductions of any kind, herbal or otherwise. I wasn't ready for my first to come yet. My water broke at 1:30am when I got back in bed after peeing. Since my pregnancy had been high risk it wasn't shocking for him to arrive early.
But with my second son, my pregnancy was picture perfect. So I was incredibly surprised when he arrive 17 days before my due date! Labor started the same way, water breaking when I got up to pee in the middle of the night.
We charted with both boys, so I was positive about their "due dates".

with my first, I was induced at 41weeks, 2 days, so presumably labor would have been later than that, but i couldn't vote because I was induced. I was induced fairly easily, though, so presumably it would have happened soon (already dilated, prodromal labor - i wish i had known more at the time )
With my second, I gave birth spontaneously at 40w 2d.

Wading slowly and nervously into this homeschooling thing.
they tell me my water broke while i was on the table, but i never felt it. very short labor...maybe 3 hours from onset of contractions to holding baby boy. of course...looking back there were signs from even the night before, but i didn't recognize them b/c i was only looking for contractions.

According to her actual date of conception (which the midwife wouldn't listen to) and the consensus of the medical professionals who saw her right after she was born, she was about 37 weeks.
2 happy kids makes for a happy mother.
Considering I haven't a clue when he was conceived or when my last period was...I was frantically trying to link tampons to memorable dates to work it out, you can take that estimate with a pinch of salt.
Ds3 was 44+2. Sure of dates. I was in prodromal for four weeks. Ugh...
Ds4 was 42+2. Also sure, but he came after 3 days of violent vomiting from a flu we all had. My water broke and he came 30 seconds later barelling out from way up high. He hadn't dropped until my water broke, and then there were three contractions and he was out. : It was intense.
Well, I've been absent for 8 months, and during that time, it turns out that I have completely transformed. You are all precious. Thank you for being here and sharing your lives. You are truly a gift. Jan. 23, 2012
2nd: 39 wks 4 days
#2- 40 wks exactly, but had a membrane sweep 3 days before so probably doesn't count as totally spontaneous...
