First babies come early or late?

I am due may 6th and was wondering if anyone who had their first baby come a few days or few weeks early?  Is it more common for first time babies to come after due date?


Anyone do anything to jump start labor at 37 weeks?

I had my first baby 5 days before due date.  I went into labor spontaneously and I expect similar results with this second pregnancy.  I have heard that it's very common for ftms to go over on due date though.

Most first time moms go over their due date. With my first I went a few days over but my ob decided to induce which I highly discourage for many reasons.

With my first pregnancy, I delivered my daughter at 37 weeks. Today is my due date with my second and still no signs of his arrival. It differs for everyone.

I was induced with my first. I was 41+2 when he finally arrived. I'm 30 weeks pregnant with #2 and hopefully she arrives on her own, a little early.

I had my son at 35 weeks. This time around I will be having a c-section at 38 weeks due to many issues with my first and me being so high risk. I just hope we make it to 38 weeks! I'm 28+5 today

I had to be induced with my first (girl) and this little boy we are having now im 31 weeks tomorrow and hope he is early because i want to experience the oncoming of labour without it being kick started with drugs.
