    A week late for me, but that was only cos I had to go to hospital cos of high bp. Ended up being induced and emergency section. God only knows when he would've turned up without intervention!

    Mine was 9 days early but that was the docs decision not hers. From her stubborn personality I imagine she would've made me wait the full 42 weeks if it had been her way.

    My contractions started at 00.20am on my EDD. I have always been quite stressy about being bang on time for everything...seems my little one may be the same :) x

    10 days late with my first after being induced.

    And so far 3 days late with this one. My body clearly likes to hang on to my babies and cook them that little bit longer! :-D
