    my water broke the morning before DD, and i had him at 2 in the morning on my DD.
    williamswifey responded:
    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.
    Jacque72903 responded:
    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!
    terricody responded:
    had dd at 38 weeks and my labor wasn't that long 4hrs and this is my longest labor of all pg's
    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!
    jmarsh81 responded:
    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.
    ninis1656 responded:
    My son was born 9 days past his "due date"
    MtnPrincess responded:
    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.
    krissims responded:
    DD was born at 38 and so was DS...hope this one comes at the same time
