What's everyone's due dates? I thought it would be neat to compare the actual dates we are "due" and see how close we "should be" delivering. Of course we all know that due dates aren't set in stone but it's still neat. I already found one other person with the same due date as me, which is pretty cool. I'm due 9/29 supposedly

Well, I think I will go early. I went 2 days early with DS, and second pregnancies usually end quicker. So I think I'll go about a week or two early. IN fact I hope so much that I do. My husband must be in Korea on September 30. I want so much for him to be there for our beautiful UC and to meet our daughter or new son before leaving. (Hoping for a girl)

We're all listed at the top - under the sticky "Official Due Date List"

If you aren't listed - post on that thread and I'll add you!

Don't hold your breath mama. My first ds came at 40w1day, my second came after a pitocin drip at 42w. If it wasn't for the pit, we probably would have gone weeks longer. That second being quicker thing is an old wives tale.

I am due the 15th but have delivered at 38, 34, 36, and 37 weeks. I just hope for a smooth healthy delivery and baby at 38+ weeks. That said, dh always starts a new semester on Labor Day (the first Monday in September) so it will be an unsettled time. All the unknowns...

Wow! There are 7 of us sharing September 23rd. My due date for my daughter was September 23rd and I actually gave birth to her on that day..so it can happen sometimes. I am hoping for a different date this time, just so that they can have their own distinct birthay.

Thanks Stacyg!

My birthday is also Sept 18 so I would really like the baby to come on that day! My first was born a few days early, #2 was right on her due date, and #3 was one day after EDD.

: I'm actualy 28 August... but last time was 3 June and my daughter ended up with a 29 May birthday. I really didn't like not knowing anyone in my new birth club so was getting to know some names/faces in both Aug & Sept this time.

I'm due Sept 29th. I wouldn't be at all surprised if I went on that day. Both of my other children were born on their due dates (no inductions or anything)

Everyone in our families are already assuming I'm going to go on my due date

Dawn, mama to D (3.06) & N (9.07) C (11.09) & Still-in-shock surprise due in Aug!

I'm due October 3rd... Should check which of these forums I'm looking at when I post.

My last was a few days early, so I'm hanging out with the September mamas, too.

Actually, could someone change me on the official list to September 8? I originally said September 12, but that's more based on last period, not taking into account ovulation dates.

Thanks!

Hey, I have Sept 26 too. So does, I think, pianojazzgirl.

My mom gave me her ring that dad gave her for Christmas (she didn't really like it, but I did), because the stones were sapphires, which I guess is the birthstone for September. This was the justification for "passing it on" to me. So it would be kind of funny if babe didn't arrive till October.

Okay, well, I'm officially due the 25th. I think I need to look at the official list to see what my date is there, because I think it got bumped up a couple days. I was late with dd--expecting the same again here, but of course, not setting anything in stone!

I am due sept 25th but Ob has me as Sept 26th. I lied about my dates because I know when I ovulated and I was off by one day, oh well buys me another day!

I don't expect to go until after my edd though. I really want a libra baby so I hope the baby doesn't come tell my due date or later. My bday is oct 2nd so a b-day baby would be great!

My due date is Sept 4, the day after labor day, my first two were born on their due date, the 3rd was born a week late and was induced by breaking my water (I was given the choice of being induced or getting the post dates monitoring, I was dialated to 4 for a month so I chose being induced) the 4th was 4 days after his due date (on the 4th of July!) and the 5th was induced by breaking my water 3 days after my due date, because #4 was a 35 minute labor, I live 45 mins from the hospital, and I was strep B positive and the wanted to get all the IV antibiotics in me beforehand, I was also dialated to 4 for her before they broke my water, only took 2 hrs to have a baby after breaking my water.) So I suspect this baby will be on my due date or later and the CNMs are already willing to break my water to induce me, although I switched to a 20 min away hospital and I hope to go into labor on my own. I will be intotal shock if this baby comes before my due date.

I've figured my due date at Sept 21st. But the CNM figured 22nd or 23rd due to LMP.
My new midwife told me to get into my head that my due date is Oct 4th so that if my "actual" due date comes and goes I don't get stressed over it.

Kimilia,

We share the same due date!

You had Sept 23rd for you due date last time, gave birth then, and now have that same due date? How funny!

My first dd was due Dec 24th but was born Jan 5th. My second baby, a boy, was due Jan 18th but was born Jan 1st. So their b-days are only 4 days apart, and their gestations were 30 days different. I'm guessing I'll go Oct 1st for this one - we shall see!

On paper it's Sept 15th.. I did have an early ultrasound at 8.3wks. That gave me a due date of Sept 19th...

My son was born 39.5wks..

I am also the 15th, but the 14th according to 'them' but I have yet to go past 38 weeks. This will be the one and we will have a heat wave to boot, a hot and muggy one.
