Due date

edited July 2016 in Birth
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?



  • My son was born five days after the expected due date. I was very nervous and I didn't understand why he hadn’t been born yet. When labour started I was very relieved. The funny part of this story is that my husband was on a business trip before the birth and his flight was cancelled because of a volcano eruption. But because my son's birth was five days later my husband could managed to be there on time.
  • With my first and last I was hoping I'd have more time but they were both born within a day of the estimated due date, with the middle, I was ready to give birth weeks before she was born, but she was also within a day! The thing with my middle is that I had prodromal labor for a full day and I didn't know what it was. With my last baby I had it for much longer, but since I understood what was happening I didn't worry too much.
