My baby was born 9 days before the calculated due date. That was great because it was not too early and I didn´t feel like sitting on needles waiting for labour to start. I was still going out for walks and visiting my parents for lunch on the day my boy was born.
Also I imagine when you are past the due date people would keep asking if the baby was here yet, which I´m sure can get quite annoying.
When was your baby born? Before, quite close or after the calculated due date?
