How many weeks were you?

I'm just wondering if there is any consistency how a mother carries her children. How many weeks and days were you when your babies were born?


(#1) 40 weeks exactly- induced by AROM but was already having mild contractions
(#2) 40 weeks 2 days

#1--35w4d
#2--37 weeks --my 20 min labor/delivery
#3--39w1d--induced because of #2's birth experience but was already 4cm and effaced and walked around like that for 5 days including lots of dancing at a wedding. She was stubborn.

#1 - 38w6d induced. He was breech though, had ECV and induced immediately after. Who knows when he would have come if he'd been vertex and come on his own. I had been having Braxton hicks/prodromal labor for weeks
#2 - 37w5d (going by ovulation date, by early ultrasound I was 38w1d) - all natural labor. I did have membranes stripped the day before, but had been in early labor on and off for a couple days already and was 4cm, so I wasn't far from it anyway. I also had Braxton hicks and prodromal labor for weeks before.

Re: How many weeks were you?

Mine were both medical inductions due to my kidney transplant. They were 39w3d & 39 weeks exactly.

#1, induced at exactly 38 weeks. He was born the next day. It was supposedly a medical induction, but I think the doctor just wanted me delivered before Christmas.

#2, spontaneous labor at 36+4
