Just wondering! I will be 40 weeks pregnant August 5th. I delivered my dd 6 years ago via medical induction at 41 weeks. This time around, I'm going for no medical intervention and a drug free birth. Just wondering how many of you NCB'g mommies went past your official "due date". I ask this question knowing full well that the 40 week due date is just an estimate and very few people delivery on or by their due date without intervention. Just thought it would be neat to know!

Thanks, ladies!

Went 16 days overdue with Reicher. (I had an induction scheduled for the following day, I think that was his motivation! lol).

This time, I'm sitting at 41 weeks today and will not schedule an induction unless there is something wrong. Otherwise, we'll meet him when he's ready!

I had 2 due dates with my first. By my last period I was 5 days overdue, by ovulation, she was born on her due date. With my second daughter, I just went by when I ovulated and I was 3 days over.

I was 11 or 12 days over. For some reason my doctor's little wheely-chart said my edd was one day later than the ones online, and my 10 week u/s confirmed one of those dates. I went into labor on my own, with some prodromal labor for I think a week prior, but no dilation or effacement until my water broke.

I have 32 day cycles and ovulate normally on day 16-18. I know when this baby was conceived and with all of that info, my due date is August 9th. One of my first u/s showed August 10th as my due date. Somehow, that got adjusted back (based up 28 day cycle) to August 5th. So, I am not stressing but after reading the stickied article about the lie of the EDD, I'm just thinking that it's going to happen sometime within the next week to week and a half (hopefully). Everything has been looking good at my ob appts so...I hope he will let me continue to let nature take its course. I have a doula but dh wants to deliver at the hospital so, I have an ob as well! We will just see how this all plays out, I guess!

I was 40 weeks and 6 days according to U/S dating done around 9 weeks. Otherwise by LMP I was exactly 42 weeks overdue.

I went into labor on my own 3 days before my "due date" - u/s measured her a bit ahead but because I was so sure of when we conceived my midwife didn't change it.
