I had my baby girl at 38 wks. She was 7lbs 10oz. Overall healthy baby. I did an enormous amount of walking so labor and delivery only lasted about 7 hours. 10 minutes of that was spent pushing. She is my first and only child.

my little boy was 10 days overdue. i was supposed to be induced the day he actually came in fact. i was all packed and went to the hospital only to be told when i got there that they had no room. i went home and sat down to watch a movie. within 2 hours i was in full blown labour and made my way back to the hospital and they had to find me a room. after another 2 hours, i was holding my little man. he came out a little blue... and very scaly. for about 2 weeks he had skin peeling off him from being over 'cooked' as they call it. but he was healthy and that was the main thing. they can make mistakes with due dates, so dont stress if bubs a little late or a little early.

I went into preterm labor with my daughter(my first) at 33w6d. They stopped it and I actually ended up having to be induced after! She was born on her due date: 12-15-07! 8lbs 3oz and 20 and 3/4 inches long!
With my son(my second) I had spotting at 8 weeks and 12 weeks. I started having contractions at 13 weeks, started having weekly hormone shots at 18 weeks, preterm labor at 24 weeks (was stopped with terbutaline), started home monitoring and a terbutaline pump at 24 weeks, started leaking fluid at 34 weeks, started MORE home monitoring at 35 weeks, lost half of my fluid at 36 weeks and had him then. He was big for being a month early (7lbs3oz and 21in long) but had trouble breathing and was in the NICU until he was 6 days old. I didn't even get to hold him until he was 2 days old =( .
He had a lot of trouble with eating and keeping stuff down until he was 6 months old. But now is as happy as can be! And finally chunky and gaining weight!

My due date with my son was 12/31/08 and i had him on 12/17/08 so i was exactly two weeks early. He is absolutely adorable and he weighed 6lbs. 14oz and 19 1/2 in. long. I wasn't expecting it because everyone was telling me that you usually go late with your first pregnancy. YEAH RIGHT!! Lol, i didn't even have my hospital bag packed when my water broke.

My first son was born 38 weeks, he was 8lbs 7oz. My second son was born 37 weeks, he was 7lbs 8oz. This time around, I was told I'm having a girl, I am 38w6d and I want her out!!! lol!! I think it's funny that this is the longest I've ever been pregnant! lol. I'm hoping I don't go overdue, but I have heard that girls can be stubborn! :)

My little one was due Feb 4th, 2009 and I had her one Jan 26th, 2009. Nine days early at 8lbs 5oz. I don't think my due date was accurate at all. They said I must have concived in May however my boyfriend works away and was home one day in May and if I conceived in May then she would have been 3 weeks early but i'm pretty sure I conceived in April when we went to mexico...making her about a week overdue. I think due dates can go either a 2-3 weeks before or 2-3 weeks after.

My son was born four weeks before he was due. I was still at work. I put my calls on hold to go to the bathroom and my water broke while I thought I just had to pee! No one told me it could be like a gallon of fluid! I got nervous and walked back to my office (dripping still, it wouldn't stop!). I called my mom and told her I was going to the hospital. My boss drove me (luckily it was up the road), with puppy pee pads on her car seat. I called my hubby's phone, but he was already at work, so I called who I thought was his boss, it wasn't, but he passed the word. Poor guy thought all his shop buddies were kidding when they told him to get out to go to the hospital. :)
Funny thing, I was just about to go to the hospital to pre-register, so I was right on time, haha. I didn't have my hospital bag or camera.
In a few days I was scheduled for a ECV because he was breech, so I guess he didn't want me to do that.
I ended up having a cesarean, which I was bummed about, but my son didn't seem to want to do much work, haha! Luckily, even being four weeks early, he was very healthy at 6lbs 14oz 18.8 in, and only had amniotic fluid in his lungs which I was told was common for c-section babies.

I had my son 1 day early. a good 8lbs 7oz. everyone was afraid I wouldnt make it to my due date, but he was determined to stay despite all the home remedies i tried to induce labor. He was my 1st mothers day gift (born the day before mothers day)

My daughter, Aria, had an EDD of 04/15/04 but was born on 12/31/03 at 25 weeks weighing only 1lb. 4oz. Doing well in spite of the multiple disabilities she is living with as a result of complications during her premature birth.
