Just the facts


Did you know?


Due dates are more of a guideline than a specific target.
Only one in 20 babies is born on his or her due date.

My oldest is one in 20. She was born on her due date! Maybe this one will follow suit.

Nope … I didn’t know that. Do you know what percentage are born early and/or late? I’m holding the good thought for you and this new baby ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Jakey was born on his edd :) And Jason almost was, if he'd waited 2 more hours. That would be cool if your baby came on her due date.

Yep.I knew that.Here in Portugal they don't induce labor until the 42nd week is over.They only do that at the 40th week if there is some complications.Mine were born at:1st one--40 weeks + 2days
2nd one--36th week
3rd one--39th week+4 days.
Love *muack*

I've never had a baby on their due date. I've had some early ~ 3 days, 1 1/2 weeks, 2 weeks, 5 days, 2 days...and I've had some late ~ 5 days , 5 days. Those March babies were both 5 days late. {lol}

Babies come when they want to come. ;) My husband had even asked the midwife {jokingly} if he hugged me really hard, maybe the baby would pop out? The midwife deadpanned :"If you can do that, we'll hire you for all our overdue women."

So true!! My darling daughter was born perfectly healthy and all natural at three weeks past her due date - 43 weeks gestation.
