How often do babies arrive 'early'/before their due date?
The post on maternity leave got me thinking. I plan to work down to 39 weeks. I was wondering though, how often is it that babies are born early? LIke between 34-38 weeks? ARe most babies born on or after their due dates? If you've been pregnant before, did you go all the way to your due date?
I'm wondering if I need to some more preparations in place just in case I happen to deliver early - like at 36 weeks.
I was 12 days late with my first, I ended up having on the day I was supposed to be induced
I do have a gut instinct tho that this one will be early...dont know why but I just feel that she'll be early.
