I don't see a poll, so I'll just answer. I went into labor 11 days before my due date and had the baby 10 days befor the due date. so that means that i went into labor at 38w3d.

I went into labor at 42 weeks for #1 32 weeks baby #2, 35 weeks 5 days baby #3, and 36 weeks 5 days baby #4

all but the first were spontaneous labors, all starting with rupture of the membranes (including #1, but he was induced with pitocin after my water broke)

dd1: 39 weeks 4 days
dd2: the first time 23 weeks, then a few times after that, finally delivered at 38 weeks 0 days

With both I had lots and lots of prodromal labor leading up to active labor. It felt like early active labor at the time! For days on end. With dd I started dilating and lost my plug at 23 weeks but managed to hold off on having her until 38 weeks. I was at 4cm my last prenatal visit before I had her.

Medically induced with baby #1 at 41 weeks exactly, baby #2 was born 11 days past my due date at 41w4d after a gentle nudge from castor oil Got a little nervous with baby #2 that I'd have to transfer care at 42 weeks (stupid laws in this area!)

with DS: 19 w, 6 d
(which legally is right on the edge of being an actual birth, rather than a miscarriage; the law here says 20 weeks is no longer a miscarriage. I missed it by one day, but I still labored and birthed, so to me it was a birth, not a miscarriage.)

with DD, it's more complicated, as I went into full-blow labor three times:
31 weeks
33 weeks
and finally 39 weeks

42 weeks 1 day with SPROM 12 hours before contactions began.

(actually, I was scheduled to go in for a non-stress test the day I wound up delivering...I was able to cancel the appointment when I came in to labor the night before)

DS: Induced at 39 weeks 6 days for hypertension.
DD: Went into labor naturally and gave birth at 39 weeks 3 days (although you could say it was an induction as well, as it all started with DS jumping on my belly and breaking my water! )

34 weeks (I actually went into labor around 32 weeks but we were able to hold it off a while)
42 weeks
37 weeks

in that order.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
