    I've been somewhat relying on the idea that first babies are usually late, but an American friend just told me that in the States they usually think that first babies will come early!!!

    So, I'd be really interested to know what the story is from this forum??

    Jack was 13 days late and I had to be induced! Even then he didnt want to come out.

    I was told that if they hadnt of induced me when they did I could have gone another 2 weeks over! :shock:

    1st was 13 days over - had to be induced
    2nd was born at 36 wks
    3rd was 2 days over by scan, bang on time by my dates
    4th was born at 36wks+3 (was almost 36+2 but consultant wanted to finish watching carry on camping :shock: )

    No pattern with mine whatsoever - except the first was late

    So far 45% had your first early and 55% on or after the date. This is not encouraging ;o(

    I guess my LO will show up whenever she wants to; but I'd really like her to be late. I need to get some rest before she arrives - I'm knackered!

    Thanks to all - I'm a little more encouraged by my straw poll now. 60% of you had your babies on or after the EDD! That seems like ok odds ;o)
