As we're discussing about when we should ask DH's godmother & goddaughter to come over in preparation of little dot's arrival, I got to wonder on whether or not it is true that Tigerle's - exact on due date - birth, especially as a first born, is really THAT unusual.

So did a bit of a google & I came across this page that displayed the result of survey about length of pregnancy that was taken by 5000+ of women. Fascinating!

What do you think? Any wager on what's the likelihood that little dot will also make an appearance exactly on due date? A bit later? a bit earlier?

ETA: In summary, the graphs are saying that most people's pregnancy lasts exactly 40 weeks (i.e. 280 days = 9 months & 6 days). On the graph shown the blogger even had to limit the maximum number of people giving birth exactly on due date because otherwise it'll go off the chart completely. And it seemed like this is still true regardless of whether it's the first child, second, and so on. I think it's fascinating.

But at the same time am still nervous when DH said that Tigerle's favourite cousin C, (DH's 13 yrs old goddaughter) will only start her summer holiday on the last week of July, i.e. the week of the due date & that he thinks that his godmother (Tigerle's favourite oma) should travel together with C because she's not flown or gotten out of the country in the last 30 yrs or so! Oh dear! What if little dot decides she wants to say hello 2 weeks early?!
