It's perfectly normal to be past your "due date" because the 40 week mark is an average. Women normally give birth anywhere between 36 and 43 weeks gestation. You're okay, mama, hang in there! You'll meet your baby soon!

hang in there, Mama! just like the pp's said, it's normal to go overdue, and every baby is different! i read before that 70% of baby go past due date (if allowed to go at their own time without induction).

my 3rd baby was right on due date, and this last baby was 8 days past. both babies gave me 8 days of prodomal labor, so with this last one the prodomal began on the due date.


your baby will be here soon.
