I'd love to know if they've done research on baby's gender and arrival. My son was 9 days late (but he was also my first) and our newest came 2-3 days early (depending on which due date I use....I had 2).
Hang in there Rose (and anyone else past due). It stinks to be pregnant any longer than necessary in this nasty summer heat. I'll be lurking for your birth stories!
Maura (31) DH (32) Parents to one amazing 4 1/2 year old son and got our BFP on 10/10/10 (hpt) after our 2nd IVF cycle. U/S showed one healthy baby due on Father's Day. We're on the surprise team!
Maura, I don't think it's gender related. The Doula's I spoke to said their IVF clients notoriously deliver late. Also that after the 1st, any other's generally come sooner.
I did however just speak to one of the references for the Doula we hired, and she's currently PG with her 6th and ALL of her L&D's have been difficult. So... I don't know that there's any correlation to anything.
