Did your baby arrive before his/her EDD???

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Did your baby arrive before his/her EDD???

Postby sparkle_cleo » Thu Nov 19, 2009 3:27 pm

I am just wondering for those of you who naturally gave birth before your EDD did you ever suspect that you might have your baby early? It's a strange thing to ask I know but I am just curious because I have been thinking since around the 25 week mark my baby girl will arrive earlier than her due date, I could be very wrong and I am ok with being wrong LOL!! but I am wondering whether my feelings are actually instintive, of course it could just be simply the fact that we will be moving so close to my EDD my sub-conscience is worrying me but I would be interested in hearing from you!

I though for sure I'd go early with My oldest but she ended up being two weeks late.

Just try to not get your head wrapped around the idea that she will be here early. That way if it doesn't happen your wont be totally crushed. Yah know what I mean. Everyone is trying to tell me I'll go early with this one too and I refuse to even let the idea into my head.

I thought I'd go before my due date with my daughter and she was (naturally) born ON her EDD. My water broke at 39w 2d with my son (my 1st) and was totally not expecting that!

I had Connor early, due to high BP. Had a amnio @ 35wks 4 days, he aced it.

They were going to give me Potocin to stimulate labor, but i went on my own at 35 wks 5 days. He was 7lbs 10oz.

First baby, 8 hour labor. Had a epi @ 8cm, pushed about 75 min :)

I thought for sure I'd go late. My mom was 2 weeks late with 3 kids so I figured I was doomed. He was actually born on the EDD that I calculated based on ovulation (and 5 days before the Drs EDD.)

Hi Georgi!

With Gabriella, I was telling everyone that I knew she probably be born at 39 weeks and sure enough she came exactly at 39 weeks! I just had the feeling she would be early and also because it seemed like she was fighting her way out of my belly all the time!
Georgia arrived at 39 weeks and 3 days. I wasn't really expecting it, but then again, I knew I wouldn't go to 40 weeks either!
Image
Georgia arrived on 2nd Jan 2008 at 8.42am, weighing 6lb 8oz and measuring 19.7 inches!
Gabriella arrived on 19th Sep 2009 at 3.23pm, weighing 6lb 13oz and measuring 19 inches!

With my DD I just felt that I would go early. I was up visiting my mother in Canada during what ended up being my last month of pregnancy, and I felt a constant need to get back home to get ready - I just knew it would happen soon.

She ended up being born at 36 weeks exactly, only 10 days after returning home form Canada.

This time around I've been struggling with pre-term contractions since week 22. Now I'm past week 36 and no baby - I suspect I will at least make it to 37 weeks, but I actually have no predictions whether he'll be early or if he will just hang out until after my EDD. :dunno: I wouldn't obsess too much, like a PP said, it might just drive you crazy, particularly if you end up carrying way past your EDD.

Well I wasn't really early or late. Owen was due Sept 28th and for several months I was saying I thought he would be born on the 25th and my mom had better come earlier than she had planned to. He was born at 2:39am on the 26th, so I was just off but close! :)

Thanks for all your stories ladies...it is making me think that perhaps these feelings I am experiencing are everything to do with the prospect of moving house before my EDD and not actually instintive ;) I would much prefer she did stay put until the 14th :D

My first, I had no clue she would come 3 weeks early and we too were really close to moving. She actually arrived 2 days before we were suppose to close on our new house. Needless to say our sellers were wonderful and we closed 3 weeks later.

My second, I knew from about 20 weeks on that he was going to be early. He was just way toooooooo big to stay in there longer. He arrived at 36 weeks. I always say " trust your instincts"

I agree that you should trust your instincts! I just knew DS would come on Thanksgiving and I would miss Thanksgiving dinner and sure enough, I went into labor on Thanksgiving. Luckily, I didn't miss dinner. :D I had that feeling throughout my entire pregnancy.
