    So we just keep the due date given by my first scan which was the 25th May. Our little bundle arrives on the 23rd May via a spontaneous vag delivery. However after delivery my midwife commented that he must in fact be over cooked and not early. His skin was very wrinkly, dry and had no Vernix. So I think in our case our second scan was most likely more accurate. So he would technically have been about 8 days late. Although in a way I am happy we stuck with our original date because we weren't impatiently waiting thinking he was late and making it seem to last longer
    Just thought I'd post this in case anyone else is in the same situation.
    This was exactly what happened to my son. My scan date had him due 16/5 and my last period date dated me 6/5.. he was born on 7/5 and dry, wrinkly and no vernix. Lost a lot of flaky skin. One midwife asked me how over due was he and I said he wasn't. My waters broke on 6/5 and I had him on 7/5. She thinks I must have been low on fluid. My DS is now 22 yrs old lol
