I am just wondering who the first of us to hold their little one will be. I am notoriously on my due date, so I don't think it will be me. Anyone want to guess they'll be the first

I think salt_pheonix will be the first to go, since her water broke already. We have a few moms on bedrest too so if SF's uterus reseales itself then the bedrest mamas are next on the list.

I will watch my due date come and go I'm sure.

I am hoping I will go early, but I doubt it. My ob won't let me go over, but I may make it to my due date.

What do you mean by your OB won't let you go over?

Once you think you will go early, you get at least 42 weeks

I think I might. I had that feeling with DC1 too, and went into labor naturally with him right around 37 weeks 3 days. His pregnancy was full of BH ctx that started early (15 weeks) and came very frequently, and I started losing chunks of mucus plug at 30 weeks. This pregnancy has been the exact same, so we'll see if the trend holds true. It will be interesting to see how it works out for all of us.

I have bleeding issues, fast labours and deliveries and a history of early dilation and weeks of prodromal labour. Believe me I won't be figting to stay pregnant longer.

I will likely be early according to my due date, but not real early. Though dh said today he felt like this baby was gonna be earliest. I don't think prior to 37weeks, perhaps 38 weeks or so. YIKES - that's a Leap Year Baby!

I know I won't be the first, but I'm guessing I'll go early again. Dd almost came at 37+2 and again at 38+1, eventually holding out until 38+6. This time I've been having consistent contractions if I don't watch it, and am already having slight cervical changes. So I'm guessing between 37 and 38 weeks (but hopefully not the 29th!)

I've been assuming that this baby will come between 37 and 38 weeks. DD1 was born at 38 weeks, DD2 at 37 2/7 weeks. I'm 1 cm dilated, which is more than I was at 31 weeks with DD2. But my BHs are not nearly as bad as they were with DD1.

I've got the week of Feb 20 in my head as when I'll likely deliver.

I'm planning to carry my twins to 38wks2d, then go into spontaneous labor My OB has said he'll get "nervous" if I go over 38 weeks, and I just don't want to have to fight him about induction. So I'm telling the babies that 38wks2d is our time. I'm sure they'll cooperate

I am guessing I will give birth in the 38-39 week range. My girls were both exactly 10 days early. My mom had all her babies between 10 and 4 days early. My grandmother had all her babies early. My family just seems to birth in the 38-39 week range.

I am thinking I will likely birth either the last week of Feb. or the first few days of March. And, I would LOVE a leap year baby.

I had ds at 40+4 so I dont think I will go early. As much as Im starting to detest being pregnant I know taking care of a newborn is a million times harder so Im in no rush.

My track record so far is 37w, 38w5d, 40w1d. If this one follows the trend, I will be 42w! :

I imagine I'll be somewhere between 38 and 42 weeks. :

This is VERY different than my first 2.
DD#1= 42 weeks (water broke)
DD#2= 36.5 weeks (water broke during pushing)
DD#3= 31 weeks WATER BROKE!!!!

I never thought I'd say it, but I hope I'm still laying in this hospital bed in a MONTH!!!

DD#1 came at 38 weeks with NO warning! She was fully baked too

I'm assuming this baby will be early, based on that, but I really don't know.

Glad to hear that you are still hanging in there and so is the little one!

As bad as it sounds too....I hope a month from now, your still snug and cozy in your hospital bed too!

My first kid, my waterbroke at somewhere between 36-40 weeks...no one knows because they gave me so many due dates and were so unsure of my actual due date.

With the twins I went into premature labor that couldnt be stopped at 32 weeks, and had them by section.

This little guy is giving me alot of problems already but so far no here near as much as the twins, so I am hoping he stays put til atleast 36 weeks!

I have NO idea! This is my first pregnancy and I haven't had any complications thus far, so I'm thinking I'll probably go past the 40 week mark. I'm trying to take walks more often to get my blood flowing! I also haven't had any BH yet, so I think little Ruby Jo is very happy where she is right now!

I doubt very seriously that I will go early. With my track record I will be lucky to deliver around my due date. DS #1 was 13 days over. DS #2 was 10 days over. DD was somewhere between 14 and 21 days over, her exact due date was never established...

DD1 came at 38w3d, which was a complete shock to me. I was fully expecting to be pregnant to 42 weeks.

I'm once again expecting to be pregnant till 42 weeks, since I'd much rather get a pleasant early surprise than be grumpy at my due date because I thought I'd go early. But since DD did come early it is in the back of my head that my deadline for stuff to be ready really does need to be 37 weeks (last time I still had a to do list a mile long, which was okay in the end but it would be nice to be more caught up just in case).

In my family we have three generations of late February babies - Grandma born on Feb. 24th, an Aunt born Feb. 25th and my sister born Feb. 25th. My mom was also due on March 3rd just like me, so I'm hoping that I will have the baby at around Feb. 24/25th to keep up the tradition.

I'm guessing I'll go at the 41+ mark. With my first pregnancy I was induced at 40 weeks, 2 days and he was not ready. Still very high. So I'm expecting this little guy to take his time.

I'm due at the end of March so I don't think I'll be first by any means. I do, however, think this babe will be a few days early. My dd was born 11 days early--on a Friday, full moon, etc. I'm due March 25th and the full moon is the Friday before. I just have this feeling that this babe will be born around March 21st or 22nd. Just a hunch though.

I have no idea! My first was born at 39 weeks on the day with no warning, so I doubt this one will go beyond 41 weeks. But babies decide when they need to be born, so who knows I'd rather this baby have a March birthday than a February one, so a little later would be nicer.

DD was born at 38 wks, DS at 37 wks 4 days, DD 39 wks ? days. And with her I was sure I would go early around 37/38 wks. So I was rather irritated to still be pg at 39 wks. So with this one if I have a baby by April I will be fine with that. Much past April and I may turn into a grump considering that would put me at 43 wks or so.
