Poll: How far along were you when you LO came?

So I am just about 35 weeks and starting to daydream about what it will be like to have my little boy here and to NOT be pregnant. I was wondering when people delivered becuase it seems like there have been a lot of mamas who went overdue and I am wondering how common that is.

I didn't vote. I've had 10 babies, and I've gone from 34 weeks to 36 weeks(my c-section) to 40+ to 42 weeks. It worked out that I had 5 early, one on time, and 4 late.

Over the years, the drs have become less worried the earlier they are. Now, 37 weeks is considered full term, according to my docs.

I put 37-38 weeks because 2 of my 3 children were born then. My 8 year old was 38.6 weeks, my 3 year old was 40 on the nose born on her due date and my 17 month old was 38.2 weeks.

I didn't include my twins in my vote b/c it was a obviously different.
My 3rd was induced at 40w3d
My 4th was induced at 39w1d
My 5th was induced at 37w1d

Re: Poll: How far along were you when you LO came?

With my first I was induced at 39 weeks due to HELLP syndrome. (So I didn't vote on that since it was medically necessary)

My 2nd was 12 days late so 41w, 5 days
My 3rd is currently 8 days late and I'm still waiting

I went into labor on my own with my daughter (first child) at 40wks 1day. Had her at 8pm on the 19th - she was due on the 18th of Sept.05. She was already 10 lbs, I cringe to think how big she would have been had I not gone into labor when I did.

My "bookends" (the oldest and youngest) both arrived at 41 + weeks. The other two came at 39 weeks.

Re: Poll: How far along were you when you LO came?

I put 40wks because I've delivered very close to my EDD with all but one. I went into labor on my own with all four and they were born at:

DS1 - 40wk 5d
DS2 - 39wk 5d
DS3 - 38wk 3d (my 'early' one)
DD - 40wk (on her u/s edd, which I considered more accurate than her calculated edd which was 3 days later)
