I was hoping my baby would be on time, so wanted him to be an august baby, but it looks like most first borns are late!

42w 2d.... Induced, layed in labor for 15 hours (i went in dilated at 2.5 after 15 hours of contraction plus the 2 hours prior getting prepped and only 3 hours with an epidural i was only dilated to 3) My obgyn now came to my rescue and told my midwife she was crazy and done a c-section :) my son come out 10lbs 1oz and 22.5 inches long lol. He wasn't coming down.

My first born was at 38 wks.
I put it down to being active (lots of walking throughout pregnancy) and drinking lots of raspberry tea from 36 weeks.x

38 weeks ftm. But had to schedule a c-section as baby  was in breech position and also his umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck twice. It was detected when i was 37/1 so dr scheduled for c-section once i turn exact 38 weeks. Otherwise i would have waited long for baby to change position. And my baby dint drop too so i think he was still far if i delivered normally. May be i would have crossed 40weeks.
