So my past history dictates that on average I go about a week after my due date (it has range from 6-13 days after though!). I have been following the 'golden birthing stool' thread in April with many chuckles and loving interest!!<br><br>
Anyone else planning on a late babe??<br><br>
The best part is getting the 'when are you due?' questions and watching their eyes pop out when you say '6 days ago'...or '10 days ago' or 'last week'. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
While I admit I'm a little jealous of the teeny tiny adorable babies...I do love my sturdy, squishy 9 lb'ers!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

haha, I love a "squishy" baby too! While I have never gone past due, they have all come 5 days-1week early, but I have a strange feeling that my 4th<br>
(and final) baby will come late...I hope not, but I have felt that way since the start of my pregnancy. And I'm already tired of people asking how much longer and I say a little over 6 weeks, and their eyes get huge as they look at my belly and then "wow, do you think you'll make it that long" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> "I'm only 5 feet tall and I have big babies....where the %$#@ else am I suppose to put this baby"

I don't tell people when I'm due just to avoid those comments. I just say "soon" even if I'm past my EDD. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

really don't know. My one totally spontaneous labor was on her EDD. Everyone else has been induced/encouraged anywhere from 37w-42+. I just lost a hunk of my mucus plug this afternoon (33w3d) but I've lost started losing it this early before and still gone past EDD. This pregnancy has been SO different though that I wouldn't be surprised to see me go on my own before my EDD just because.

Induced at 42 weeks with DD.<br><br>
Despite being on bed rest the past 3 weeks for preterm labor, I STILL think this little boy is going to be late <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Once I hit 37 weeks, though, I am OFF bedrest and my meds. MAYBE I'll get to have a baby close to my due date and know what its like to go into labor spontaneously!

My DD came at 41w+5d. My instinct says this one will be later than my EDD as well. When people ask what my due date is I have just been saying "late June" and leaving it at that. The hard part is when they ask how far along I am so they can do the math in their head.<br><br>
I just really do not want all the calls and emails every.single.day. sometimes multiple times a day that I got last time for almost two weeks! Not to mention all the "wonderful" advice on how to get the baby out... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
