Re: Who has had the longest pregnancy?

There is a gal on MDC who recently delivered at 44 weeks. Her babe was 10 lbs, something.
I've never even made it to my due date Newest baby decided to bail out at 37.5 weeks and I was no where near ready for him!

Re: Who has had the longest pregnancy?

Well, I'm still 6 days shy of my first little one's due date, so we'll see what my body does...my mom, however, had four of us, and none was induced. She went anywhere from 2 1/2 to 4 weeks over her due dates, with babies ranging from 9 lb 6 oz to 11 lb 2 oz (I was 9.14)...since there are big babies on my husband's side too, we're guessing this one could be a whopper of a first!

Re: Who has had the longest pregnancy?

Does it count if it felt like the longest pregnancy?

I delivered twins at 38 weeks: 7 lbs 4 oz, and 6 lbs 4 oz. I've seen bigger twins, but that was about all my body (and my brain) could handle.

Re: Who has had the longest pregnancy?

DS was born at 42 weeks and 2 days after an induction. He only weighed 7 lbs 5 oz. The hospital records indicated that he should have been dated at 40 wks 2 days. This was after 2 early ultrasounds (for bleeding) that also verified my due date. Can you tell that I will not believe any ultrasound dating in the future?

and yup...i believe "normal" is considered anywhere between 38 and 42 weeks
