I'm likely to be late May as well. If Drew comes as early as his sister did he should arrive around May 21st.

Me too, if history repeats itself. I'll be 38 weeks at the end of May, so it's anyone's guess. I don't know if my OB is gong to want me to go much past that.

Wow...May! At least you have a date so you can start to prepare. I would like to have a date too...but based on my past history I can go anytime after 31 weeks (which for obvious reasons I would like to not do). I'm just praying this baby stays in as long as possible.

Keep us posted!!

yeah, it's good to have an idea of the max date... but like you, I could go at anytime too and they're more expecting me to go at 32 weeks...

I know 32 weeks sounds scary, but as long as you get the steriod shots it will be okay. I gave birth to my DS's at 32 weeks 5 days and my DD at 31 weeks 6 days. I was able to get both shots before giving birth (with my DD I got the second shot the morning I had her) and yes they spent time it the NICU, but they are happy and healthy.

The twins were in the NICU for 22 days and my DD was in for 26 days, she came home on Christmas Eve. We were told that at the earliest they would come home on their due date, both my due dates were in mid-January. But they did well, gained weight, maintained their body temp and came home almost a month early. Baby A weighed 3 lbs 8.6 oz and Baby B weighed 4 lbs 1 oz. DD weighed 3 lbs 14 oz...now she boss' her brothers around!! Hahaha

My DD did better than my DS's. The doctor's told us it's because she was a girl. They said the boys have the "wimpy white boy" syndrome. I hope yours will be 5 lbs too!

Officially I'm due 5/28 or 5/29 depending on what calendar you look at. However, in my case, if history repeats itself I expect to go way into June. Let's see, my max date is looking like 6/12. Oey. I'm hoping he's born on 5/27, that is my father's birthday, he passed away 6 1/2 years ago and it would be such a wonderful tribute to him! I'm secretly thinking of what can I do to make myself go into labor on the 26th for a 27th birthday...castor oil? accupuncture?
