I could be completely wrong, but I have a feeling about 22nd July (a week today).

Why? Well:
- I go full-term (37 weeks) on Thursday, and from the fact that baby has dropped and I'm having sporadic contrax and a lot of pressure down there I think baby will be ready closer to 37 weeks than 40 weeks;
- This week at school is B.U.S.Y. and stressful. Reports feedback, transition activities where classes get together, tidying up, taking displays down, sports day, year 6 production, and we're out on a day trip on Tuesday. I'm not even sure I'll be able to get through the whole week without going off with exhaustion, stress, etc. And pretty sure whatever activities I do participate in will tip me over the edge;
- 22nd is sort of a spooky date for our family. Mum's birthday is Sept 22nd; Daniel's is Aug 22nd; and I have had extremely lucky things happen on 22nd over and over and over again, especially 2/22 and 11/22 - seems a funny coincidence that the 22nd comes at the culmination of such a busy week.

It will probably just come and go, but I just have a feeling...we'll see. Interested to see what MW says about baby's position this Wednesday. I also wonder at times if I'm already a bit dilated from how I feel down there, but I'm choosing not to have internals until it's necessary. I'm not bothered if it does just come and go, because from the 24th I'll be off work anyway and rest time would be equally good as getting baby that bit early - so I'm happy whatever comes. Though I will start with the natural induction methods once I'm done working - simply because I don't want to go to 41/2 weeks like I did with my son and end up with an induction again.

Anyone else have an intuition about a particular date - and why?

Those who've already delivered - did you have any intuitions like this, and did they prove to be right?

I'm scheduled for a c-section or induction on July 27th but for soms reason noone seems to think I will last that long since I've really dropped.
My mother says definitely before the 27th and my dad says the 22nd! I say because it is my first pregnancy I really won't be ready before even though I'm feeling signs of it coming on.
I really hope it doesn't happen before. Not unless he turns on his own.

I don't - But I NEVER have strong feelings about things, one way or the other. . . However, my mom always has intuitions about everything and they're usually right. With both pregnancies, she felt strongly that they were both girls basically from my 1st trimester on. And she was obviously spot on. . . I don't remember if she had an intuitions with Emmersyn regarding her birth, but for Adalyn she doesn't think I'll make it to my due date. I think she feels that I won't make it to see 39 weeks. . . So we'll see if she's right with this!

My mum does this as well Allyssa. She predicted I'd go over with Daniel which I did, though not the date. She also thinks I will go next weekend with this baby, she didn't specify the 22nd, but next weekend. And if not next weekend, before 40 weeks.

I've had a strong feeling she will come early, like the first week of August, but my intuition has been pretty off throughout this whole pregnancy. My dad insists she will come Aug 12th, not as early as I was thinking, but maybe his intuition will be right.

I am about 99% sure she will come on the 27th when my surgery is scheduled for. There is a slight chance she might come early if you buy into the whole measuring big theory and the excess fluid deal. I'm still betting on the 27 th tho.

My guess is between July 23-Aug 2. Two reasons for July 23: I have my next growth u/s and they'll probably make a decision on when to take Madeline out 2nd reason: everthing dramatic/monumental in my life happens on the 23....seriously, everything....it's a little creepy. Also, DH's bday is July 23.

But we shall see! She could come this week!

I feel nothing. My mother's intuition stops at the sex. I've always been able to feel very strongly what the sex of the baby is, after that everything else is a mystery. My intuition is only good for one trick.

Everyone the past 2 months has been telling me they doubt I'll make it to August....so I have been influenced by that mindset. But I definitely see myself making it to August....both Aug 4 and Aug 17 stick out very much so to me and I don't know why. My edd is Aug 12 so both are distinct possibilities. Only time will tell!

I don't see myself going past July 31st. That's the only intuition I have. DH thought it was going to be today, but unless something starts soon, it's not going to happen.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

Mine says July 21, 2 days before my planned c-section Idk, just a feeling I guess. I've been having strong contractions now so maybe even sooner. I guess we'll find out here soon.

No real date set in mind here. I will most likely go anytime from this Wednesday to 3 weeks from then

I feel that I might go on Wednesday or Thursday this week, only because I have a WIC appointment I've been waiting forever to go to, and if I were in labor on either of those days I would miss it.

My daughter was born 10 days before her due date, 1st of November; my husband's birthday is the 1st of June. My older son was born 9 days before his due date, 22nd December; my birthday is the 2nd of September. And my younger son was born 2 days after his due date, 27th of November. So I have a Halloween, Christmas, and Thanksgiving baby's, this one (thank goodness) is due near no holidays (though I was cautious around the 4th of July ). I think the date will definitely have a 2 or a 1 in it though. So possibly the 20th, which would be perfect lol, right after my WIC appointment.

But I'm fine with whenever he decides to show up. My husband has already been instructed as to what to take to the WIC appointment for our youngest son just in case I am in labor, I can go at his next appointment to start .
