Re: POLL If you were NOT induced...

labor started at 40 weeks exactly, near midnight. Baby born at 4:56 the next morning. I thought for sure I'd be pregnant for a couple more weeks!

Re: POLL If you were NOT induced...

DS#1 was born at 40 weeks plus 4 days.

The other two were less cooperative: DS#2 was induced at 41 weeks 1 day (the midwife guessed that he'd be at least another week, and I would have been fine with that had we not been moving 600 miles five days after he ended up being born. DD was a c-section at 39 weeks exactly because she was breech which we only found out because of a non-reactive stress test that morning.

Re: POLL If you were NOT induced...

My non-induced babes came at 38w2d (DD2) and 40w2d (DS1). I also had a preemie (DS2) at 34w4d, though I wasn't sure to vote on him because he was trying to come at 30w6d (water broke) but they stopped my labor, put me on bedrest in the hospital for 4 weeks, and then induced at 34w4d.

Re: POLL If you were NOT induced...

39 weeks to the day!!
I'm hoping this one remains relatively the same as I'm due 2 days after Christmas. It would be nice to have him and be home before Christmas.

Re: POLL If you were NOT induced...

With DD I went into labor on my due date and she was born the next day (40+1) at 7lb 1oz.

I didn't vote with DS... I had a prolonged rupture of membranes and ended up needing a touch of pitocin after a few days. He came at 40+3 at 9lb 10oz.

Number one and two were due date babies and were not induced.
DS was a scheduled induction on due date but showed up in labor.

4 and 5 were induced.

6 was one week early on her own.
