42 weeks exactly with my son. He was a c-section do to alternating between transverse and breech, but, we waited and waited and waited for labor to start on it's own. My water broke and contractions started exactly 2 weeks after his EDD.

Hoping this one decides to be a little earlier!

At the time we thought he was a day late. But when I read Taking Charge of Your Fertility, I figured out the date was wrong. Not that one day makes much difference, but at least I know he came on his due date. So did my second. Now my third....

I was induced a week after I was due - but knowing what I do now about my cycles, she was probably right on time. I have very long cycles and it's likely that the due date was too early. She was 7lbs7oz when born.

DD was 41.5 wks. It was a Sunday (Easter Sunday 2004 ) and they were going to start inducing "lightly" on Monday. But... my water broke that afternoon and we went to the hospital only to find out 8 hrs later that she was breech and ended up having a c/seciton.

Mine was before but she was taken before labor started.

Statistically I think its 41w 5d for first time moms, right?

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

39 weeks - I charted so I was very sure of my dates - also we only dtd 2 times before ovulation and there is no way I conceived from one of them (too far away from ovulation, a week+). However, when she was born, all the nurses said she looked overdue because she had no vernix and was very wrinkly and dry - fingernails and toenails were long as well. So maybe I just cook them fast?

Something that has never been clear to me...

If the "average" is 41 + 5 for first time moms, how might that apply to a first time natural birth, second time mom? My first was C/S, so as far as birthing goes, I feel like a first time mom, ya know? I'm not sure if it has to do more with the uterus or the cervix...or? Anyone have an idea?

I haven't delivered yet, but at 42 weeks 2 day I can safely say "after". LOL

Statistically the average for first time moms is 41w1d from what I've read...

Though, the poll results here are somewhat encouraging .

My water broke at 34 weeks and my DS was born at 35 weeks 3 days. My mom went 2 weeks late with all her children so I was kind of expecting that for my first-- I was in shock when my water broke at 34 weeks!!!
