My DS was born 4 days after his EDD. He was due on 4/3 and was born on 4/7 after 19 hours of labor and having my membranes stripped at an appointment on 4/6. He DID NOT want to come out. I hope and pray that I have an easier go this time.

I had ds at 37 weeks. I had dialated to 4 and was so miserable I went in for a checkup and the doc sent me to the hospital. They gave me petocin to hurry things along and the doc broke my water. I probably could have gone another week or so, but at the time I couldn't stand how uncomfortable I was. Ds turned out fine though, so no worries!

FloralMom responded:
DS came the day before his due date.

DS I was induced a week early, but when I went in, I was already dialated 4cm... I probably wouldn't have made it the rest of that week.

FloralMom replied to FloralMom's response:
I should clarify... with DS#2 I was induced!

With my 1st, he was exactly 1 mth early. My 2nd son was 5 wks early, 3rd son 3 wks early. We are expecting this one to be born around 36 wks.

DD was exactly at 41 weeks, but I had to be induced because they did a BPP and I had no amniotic fluid. At all. She ended up being a c/s, and it turned out I didn't go into labor because I had an infection in the placenta and it caused the correct hormones to not be released.

DS was born the day before his EDD. And since I never got past 4 cm during DD's induction, I was considered like a first time mom labor wise.
