OBs saying "baby can come anytime now" is just code word for "if you go into labor, I won't stop you."

Same here. My dr told me through the whole end of my pregnancy that my baby was probably going to come early and I went past my due date.

Good luck! At my last doctors appointment I had with my daughter my doctor told me I wasn't going to make it to my due date, my daughter was born 3 days later! She was 2 weeks early.

any day now means sometimes in the next 3-5 weeks. My OB said any day now at 35 weeks I delivered at 38 weeks. With my second I was 5cm and 39 weeks and still not in active labor I had been slowly dilating since 35 weeks. Nobody can tell you how close to labor you are. A low baby,dilating,effacement, all mean nothing because any of those things could go on for weeks.

Same here. My doctor said with being 4 cm dilated, fully effaced & baby head down/dropped. That he was 80% sure he would come on his own before my due date. That was at my 38 week appointment. My son arrived at 39 weeks exactly all on his own.

My doc said the same with my first! I had to be induced at 42 weeks and 3 days. I guess there's just no way they can really tell. U want her in there for longer anyways!!

They told me the same thing when I was 37 weeks, they just tell you that so you know if you do go into labor the baby will be fine or you shouldn't have any problems. I'll be 39 weeks tomorrow and I'm still waiting.
