How far along was everyone when they had their first baby?

According to my childbirth class instructor, first pregnancies last an average of 41.3 weeks.

It seems like most people I follow on here have had their baby either before or right around their due date. I’ve only encountered a few that have gone to 41 weeks or beyond. So I kind of wonder how true this statistic is, or if I just happen to be surrounded by people who aren’t “average” :PĀ
