EDD: September 30
Actual Birth Day: October 9 (induced)
# of Days Late or Early: I have ceased to believe in the terms "late" and "early". 40 weeks is only an average, and thus it's completely normal for babies to arrive between 38 and 42 weeks.

I was always curious about this too when I was PG...

EDD: 2/21
Actual Birth Day: 2/22
# of Days Late or Early: 1 day late

I have to admit, I tried a few things the night before - eating eggplant and DTD - so I don't know if either of those things started my labor the next morning or if I just went into labor on my own. My labor started with contractions and my water didn't break until my MW broke it at about 5-6cm.

Hang in there momma! She'll be here soon! :-)

Here we go

EDD: March 16th or March 8th (depending on period for second, and early measuring ultrasound for first)
Actual Birth Day: March 14th
# of Days Late or Early: 2 days early based on ultrasound, 6 days late based on period

EDD: April 8th
Actual Birth Day: April 5th
# of Days Late or Early: 3 days early, but I was induced starting on the evening of the 3rd, so it wasn't necessarily when he would have come naturally.


Thank you for the sig Mary

EDD: Sept. 18
Actual Birth Day: Sept. 30
# of Days Late or Early: I was induced on Sept. 29 labored for 20+ hours including 2 hr of pushing, and had a c-section on the 30th because my pelvis is too small.

This time I'm due May 12, but have a scheduled c-section on May 5, so it will be almost 3 weeks earlier than Gideon. He's going to feel so tiny. He is not allowed to come earlier than that, we have too much to do to prepare.

# of Days Late or Early: Lucas was born right on his EDD. They say that only happens 10% of the time though. I started having contractions on 3/29 and they continued at a regular interval (5-7) minutes apart through Friday when he was born.

I hope Lucy decides to come soon :)
