Your EDD vs when your baby *actually* arrived

[name_m]Just[/name_m] like the title said, what was you estimated due date vs when your baby actually arrive?

[name_f]My[/name_f] first came naturally right on her due date, my second I was induced 2 weeks early.

[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] was due on 7th [name_u]February[/name_u] but I had a planned c section so came a week earlier and was born on 3rd [name_u]February[/name_u] 2021 :tada:

I was actually induced on my due date but he was born via c-section the next night. I’ve always been curious about when he would’ve arrived if he’d been able to come “naturally” though.

Babies 1&2 arrived at 41 weeks 1 day…. So 8 days past EDD. Although baby 1 came via c-section that I requested after already enduring 50+ hours of labor.

[name_u]Baby[/name_u] 3…. 39 weeks 2 days.

With all three labor happened naturally!

Currently awaiting on the arrival of my next.

First - EDD was [name_u]January[/name_u] 2, she was born two weeks late. I was induced the night of the 15th, she arrived at 1am on the 17th. Longest two weeks of my life.

Second - EDD was [name_u]March[/name_u] 26, he was born [name_u]March[/name_u] 27 after induction due to large size concerns and history of being two weeks late – water broken around noon on the 27th, he was born around 5pm. Much better experience!

40 weeks, 1 day :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: (barely, she was born at 3:20am)

I had a membrane sweep at 39 weeks, 5 days so that got things moving :running_woman:

I wasn’t induced with any of them, they all arrived naturally.

[name_m]Hjörtur[/name_m] was born at 38 weeks + 3 days (I think? If I’m honest I’d have to look it up to be completely sure)
[name_m]Barnabas[/name_m] decided he’d had enough at 35 weeks + 2 days.
The twins arrived at 32 weeks + 2 days.
[name_f]Vienna[/name_f] was the one who actually came closest to being born on her due date, she was born only 2 days before she was due.


[name_f]My[/name_f] first came 6 weeks and 2 days early, my second came 5 days early. [name_f]My[/name_f] first was an emergency c section and my second was a planned c section!

I was due Sept 12, but my water broke naturally on Sept 8 and [name_u]Rhett[/name_u] was born a few hours later :slight_smile:


We had a couple of due dates for [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] but personally I think she was born at 41 weeks exactly. [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] was due on the 4th [name_f]May[/name_f] and she was born on the 7th so a week over first time round and three days over the second time round.

With my first I went into labor on my due date, but had him the morning after. [name_f]My[/name_f] second was an induction two days before EDD. [name_f]My[/name_f] third came three days before expected, and my last, she was another induction and a full week early (right at 39 weeks). So it’s been pretty well split induction-wise, but my first was the closest to EDD for sure.

EDD was 09.28, water broke on 09.23 and delivery didn’t happen until 09.24 - so we were close!

Twins were due around [name_u]September[/name_u] 7th but came [name_u]July[/name_u] 29th.
[name_u]Baby[/name_u] girl was due around [name_u]November[/name_u] 7th but came [name_u]October[/name_u] 31st (a day before my scheduled c section).

I was induced 2 weeks early with my daughter

[name_f]My[/name_f] twins were due Sept 29 and came Sept 1 at 36 weeks exactly after my water broke spontaneously.

[name_f]My[/name_f] youngest
