Do most First Time pregnant women give birth early?


We are due mid june and I wonder whether my wife will give birth on the actual due date or earlier. So many questions! Pregnancy is a bold new, confusing world, ESPECIALLY for men. Not to undervalue women, who do an AMAZING job bringing life into the world, but its a crazy time for men too.

First babies are very often late I believe. They can be upto 2 weeks late before consideration is made for induction. Only 5% arrive on their due date. Rare for them to be early, but it can and does happen.

I heard it was the opposite - they give birth later usually.
But my sister's first baby was 2 days early, everyone is different!

We wish! Typically first timers are late because the body has never gone through the process although most OB's in the state will induce women around their due date. My SIL was induced so she wouldnt go into labor during Thanksgiving. lol I would just rather let nature takes it course!

What sort of things help induce labor?

And thanks to ALL posters for your input.

i dont think any of those things work unless baby is ready to come and then it just ends up being a coincidence that you tried that thing on that day that the baby was ready to be born on if you know what i mean some people try everything and still go overdue babys will come when they are good and ready enjoy the pregnancy stage really it is over so quick you will wish you treasured it a bit more i know i did
