I never made it to my due date with either if my boys. My fist son was two weeks early. I thought that was perfect. My second was 6 weeks early. That was scary, but he was ok. Doing great now. Very healthy. I worked through both pregnancies... maybe a little too hard. I wonder if things would have been different if I had rested more?

I had my daughter at 39 weeks 3 days. She was going to be over her due date but I had so much pressure and she was still high! SO we tried to induce and when that didnt work they had to do an emergency c-section cause my water broke and she wouldnt come down

My son was born at 36 weeks. He tried to come at 32 weeks. He was 5 lbs. He stayed one extra day longer than I did. He did go into the NICU but thanks to GOD he was fine and cleared to come home. Now you can't even tell that he was early.

I started labor at 34 weeks and had strong contractions until 37 1/2. It was the worst 3 1/2 weeks of the entire pregnancy! But well worth it to ensure that our little guy would be mature enough to deliver :) He "scored" 39 weeks geststion on the tests! I had him in 9 min from the time I started pushing.. it was soooo crazy!

I had my boys at 8 and 7 months (One was four weeks and the other was six weeks early) they had breathing and eating problems so tubes was needed, my daughter was born eight weeks early (6 months barley made it to seven). She had less problems then her brother's but she wasn't able to breath so she just needed a breating tude. Today they are all healthy and normal 8, 9, 10 year olds

My baby popped out 2 days before my due date on x-mas day. I had braxton hicks for 2 months prior and really strong contractions 2 days prior to the baby coming. Funny thing was when the labor started, I knew it was for real! It was amazing and the birth was perfect for me and nothing like what i was told to "expect".

My daughter was 4 days early. I worked out my whole pregnancy too. I am happy that she was early because I did not want to send Thanksgiving in the hospital (she was due 2 days before).

My son was supposed to be born on August 10th of this year and my water broke at 5am on July 31st. He was born at 8:42pm 8 pounds 4 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long on the 31st. I just think they had my due date wrong.

I have a 12 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. My son was 7 1/2 weeks early. My due date with him was August 29. He came March 10. He didn't even wait for the baby shower. He had to be at the party with me. My daughter I delivered at 5 weeks early. My doctor gave me steroids and put me on bed rest. I kept telling them she wasn't gonna stay in there but 8 months and that is exactly what she did. I delivered her March 28 she wasn't due until May 1.

I had my son at 40 weeks, 1 day and he was 9 lbs. 2 oz. They thought that b/c I was still only 1 cm the day before my due date, that I would probably go until July 7th (I was due June 26th and had my son on the 27th) and they scheduled me to be induced on July 7th..



I actually called my sister on my due date, crying b/c it seemed like nothing was happening and I knew he was going to be a big boy and I didn't want to wait that long.. My contractions literally started getting stronger as soon as i got off the phone with her and about 4 or 5 hours later, my water broke. But I have to say that I was quite glad b/c I didn't want to have a baby that was as big as I was (10 lbs. 9 oz. AND my mother had me naturally!!!)

My water broke first too, I wasn't having contractions at first but they came as soon as I got to the hospital!!!! Sorry to hear you had such a hard time...I was in labor from 4pm until 5am the next morning, born by c section due to her being transverse. I pushed for 2hrs. but she just wouldn't turn on her own...good luck with your precious new baby!!!!! Enjoy the holiday!!!
