Re: Does anyone else fib about their due date?

My first was born at 33 weeks, so with my second I didn't want to totally scare the crap out of ppl so even though I was due the very end of april, I just said April, he ended up only being 2 weeks early so it still worked. This time I will probably go with same thing, due the end of October but will just say October.

Re: Does anyone else fib about their due date?

I tell people the end of April. If they want to know the specific date, I'll tell them but then tell them all my babies were later than their due dates so I'm just hoping he comes out before May. For some reason, people are done with questions after that comment. I haven't figured out why though!!

Re: Does anyone else fib about their due date?

with #1 i told people MY edd instead of what the doctor thought. my cycles have never been correct on that wheeliey thing. They induced 4 wks before the due date they had; and reasons "unknown" the placenta came out half dead!!! I felt like punching the nurse.

with this one we don't when we actually conceived and the due date has already changed 3 times so I am just say August to people (although i am secretly saying Aug 19th)

Re: Does anyone else fib about their due date?

I really wanted to avoid the constant "haven't had that baby yet" at the end of the pregnancy and I was due according to the u/s Oct 16 and according to my dates Oct.4th. So I always just said October but everybody needed a freaking date so I would say middle of October I had her Oct.26th And when they made dumb comments about how overdue I was or ask when I was going to have her.. like I would know! I just replied with "I will call god and ask"

Re: Does anyone else fib about their due date?

Yep. I told people DD was due on Thanksgiving, though the date was actually 4 days before that. I've been telling people this one is due mid-June, even thought the latest date I've been given is June 10, and the earliest is May 29th. I didn't want to deal with all the "haven't you had that baby yet?" phone calls and comments. This bugs my DH, who cannot tell a lie.

So when people ask I say May/June, and that's as good as they'll get from me!
My guess date is April 26th but I generally tell people that he is due end of April, early May.

Re: Does anyone else fib about their due date?

I'm due June 4th...I'm starting to tell people end of May because I had dd a week early, and I'm tired of people saying that I have a long way to go (really, it's almost March, so I only have 2 1/2 months).

According to my estimation, I'm due March 23rd. My doctors say April 3rd, and I have a repeat c-section scheduled for March 28th.

I just tell everyone March.
