Ok thank you all that was helpful.
Bunyahh I did read awhile ago that most babies come either 2 weeks before they are due, or 2 weeks after, but I hoped it wouldn't apply to meLOL

My sis in law had my niece the day before her due date and two of my close friends had their baby on or the day after they were due. I was hoping that would happen to me.

My original due date was December 25th, but they pushed it back to the 18th due to his size.

Once I was ready to push it only took 3 and he was out. So once things get going it can be very fast. Rest up and watch some movies. Turn around any clocks and take off your watch.




I am having a home water birth, but my midwife did tell me if baby is not here by Friday, an appointment with my ob will be scheduled and I will be induced if baby is not responding to stimuli, or if there concerns he is too big and/or placenta is calcifying.
Meanwhile I am just relaxing and waiting. I didn't sleep much last night due to excitement, so I may take a nap.
ETA:  Thank you, I smile 13!

I had both my kids on the first due dates given...they were adjusted once for  my daughter and twice for my son (I keep my dates pretty well so it lined up as it should have).  
With both, I had woke up with the thought it wasn't going to be that day cause nothing happened...but when it did, they arrived with smooth deliveries.

Good luck!

Congrats and good luck!! It seemed like yesterday when you announced that you were pregnant!!! :-)
All of the friends I know, except for one gave birth on their due dates! One of my friends had a c-section this morning and she was due on Christmas day and another one is being induced tomorrow on her due date!

It's where you give birth in a birthing pool...I did this with my son and did a modified version with my daughter.  Mid-wives are great if you get good ones.
