My little girl waited till after 1am of April 10th which was her due date and then my hard labor started at 4:26am and she was out by 6:25am!

Big love to all the 40+ week-ers out there! I waited it out with my baby and she was born at home & in water at 43weeks 3days

I didn't get to 40 weeks, but it was due to my body naturally delivering at 37 weeks 3 days, not medical intervention. If I could have kept him in there for at least another week, if not the whole 40 weeks, I would have! :)
