DD2 came at about 38 weeks, spontaneous natural labor and birth. We aren't exactly sure about her dates, according to LMP dates she should have been 1 days shy of 40 weeks but when she came out she had so much vernix on her we had to practically shovel it off! My m/w said there is NO WAY a 40 weeker should have that much vernix on her, so we went with AROUND 38 weeks.
First labor was induced, about 49 1/2 hours. (I had high BP.) I was 41 weeks.
Second labor was not induced, she was 1 week or just shy of 2 weeks late, depending on which due date you used. My labor started on a Friday, stopped for a bit of a rest on Saturday, then resumed Saturday night full force around midnight. I gave birth Monday morning! So you count the hours. I can't bring myself to count them! Ugh!
second: 3 days early
no inductions either time, nor any natural measures used to stimulate things
RN-BSN 5/11, CBE, former doula
DS2 39 weeks UC
No inductions. Unless you include walking and sex.
DD was born the day before her due date.
Chaotic mama to 5 plus a bonus one on the way.
DS1: 39 weeks, 6 days
DS2: 40 weeks, 1 day
...so, 2 days apart, each one just one day off their EDD.
A doula who married a cop & became a mama to 3 boys: G 12/22/00, my rainbow baby B 2/2/07 and L 2/10/10 my CBA2V baby, waiting for my little caboose late February 2013 & always remembering my two angels 2006 & 2012.
DS was 2 days after EDD, no intervention whatsoever.
