Everyone is different. But, many first time moms go past their due date. Had I not been induced, I'm sure I would've too. I had Aubrielle at 38 weeks, and my cervix was closed when they started the induction.


Your baby can be born two weeks before or two weeks after your due date and be considered on time. No one knows what actually triggers labor and what causes your body and your baby to know it is time for birth. It is impossible to predict when you will go into labor.
