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

I voted "39 weeks" (my third child) but my first came at 42 weeks and my second at 40 weeks.

The average first time mother goes 8 days "late".

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

i voted 36 and under...

Charlie was born at 35 wks
Max was born at 36 wks
and right now I'm currently exactly 36 wks, 3cm dilated, 80% effaced & contracting for about 1 mo now...AND these contractions have been coupled with lower ab cramping and low back pain yesterday night & today...so we'll see.

I did have a midwife appt today and nothing has changed, but the cramping & back pain were a good sign for labor...i'm hoping for this weekend, as I'm done too

Both boys were over 6lbs & healthy, so since last week my midwife said that if i do go into labor they would do nothing to stop it. They did try and stop contractions 3 weeks ago with one shot of Turb.. (turbutylene?) it didn't work, but the contractions haven't lead to anything so they weren't going to give me more shots or try magnesium.

I put 40 weeks. My DD was born on her due date and my DS was a scheduled c/s about 4 days early so I wouldnt have to be in the hospital over the holidays.

DS broke my water at 35 weeks. He was 7lbs 6.5oz, and my ob said he would have been over 12 had he been full term.

I'm currently 23 weeks, scheduled for my c-section at 38 weeks (necessary), and wondering if I'm going to make it that far! LOL
