OK I have 3 days to due date - Feb 2! A mama who thought she knew said it'd happen two days ago - no contractions though.

My first baby was born the day after his due date so . . .

This time I'm thinking on the due date. I plan on working as late as possible, contractions and all. I did that with the first too.

I'm getting so excited! Loved being pregnant, but that can't last forever!

I don't think I've ever heard of anybody giving birth on their EDD. Never thought about that.
3 days is soon! I'm due on the 3rd which to me sounds like forever away, but when you say it's 4 days! Wow, that's soon! Although, he could come before then and that'd be very okay with me.

Good luck to you!

I had a baby pool for my first baby, you know, like a football pool,...my mom won.

My younger brother bet on a day that was three weeks past my due date :

We did a baby pool for my last pregnancy. It was just family and friends who bet, but they didn't bet on the birthday they bet on the weight! My aunt came the closest and said 11 lbs 5 oz. I laughed when I saw her weight guess. She was so darn close it was scary!

This time...ummm no. I'm afraid people will start guessing 13 pounds and up!!! :LOL

My oldest came on her due date. Of course, subsequent babies were 2 weeks late and one week late. We shall see what this little boy does!

Okay, tomorrow is my due date. I've honestly lost all hope that I'm ever going to have this baby since I'm on day three of contracting, but hey maybe it will happen tomorrow.

I'll say 18 Feb for me --- just for fun!

More probable date would be 24 Feb.
