EDD Due Date

Is it true that normally first child will give birth 1 to 2 weeks early before the expected EDD due date? When do you gave birth to your first child?

True for me, gave birth 1 week prior edd. However, edd is just a estimate date. Everytime I go for my gynae check up, the edd is always changing (by a day or two)..

Our EDD is just an estimated date. Only a few percentage give birth on their EDD. Normally its between 37 weeks - 39weeks. I gave birth to all my children between 36 & 37 weeks. My 1st child was born at 37 weeks

It all depends on respective mummies, to see if their body is prepared and ready to do the BIG PuSH. So it's best to check with gynae.... for my case it was exact 38weeks as gauge by my gynae

40weeks 1 days bc induced on exact edd

Delivered a day before EDD. Would also suggest packing your hospital bag around 35-36 weeks to be prepared.

39 weeks !
