    The other day someone asked how many babies come early, how many on time and how many late.........

    we all know that only something like 2% arrive on their due date.... but i just found this and thought it was interesting.... cuz i'm a geek like that. lol....


    Your due date is an estimate, it is an average. In the chart below you can see the reality.
    At the beginning of week 38, -2 weeks before the due date-, 2 out of 10 women already gave birth.
    At the beginning of week 39, -1 week before the due date-, 4 out of 10 women gave birth.
    At the beginning of week 40, -the due date-, 7 out of 10 women gave birth.
    At the beginning of week 41, -1 week after the due date- 9 out of 10 women gave birth.
