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)

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

successful #2 Jan. 25th - welcome Maisie Elise!

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.

I remember going to be with my mother and brothers to be with my aunt for her third child (I realise this is not strictly on topic) and we ended up waiting three weeks! Lol. It was great to be there though (homebirth).

ds- 4 days shy of 40 weeks

dd- taken by c-section at 32 weeks so she would not risk bleeding internally and her platelets would'nt be really low.

Yeah... sometimes I wonder if I will be there until January, lol. For good measure I packed pretty much everything we own, lol.

Baby #1 was induced 10 days overdue (although I suspect my dates were off).

Baby #2 was induced two days early.

haven't read all the pps

my ds1 was born 10 days past my edd....via c-section following a failed induction for "failure to progress". hmmm....maybe the fact that my cycles weren't 28 days should have indicated that it could be later than "The Wheel" indicated:
