I was 10 days late, and born on my cousin's due date. Weirdly, my cousin was 10 days early, born on my due date. :)

I also have a cousin who is profoundly autistic, who was born nearly 3 months early.

I was born late, a week I think it was. It seems I was really reluctant to get out of that womb.

Also, the poll needs an option for people who were born on time.

Why isn't "born on time"/"neither" an option?

I was induced after being 2 weeks late.

Seems to be a trend here...

I was induced. Which I used to think meant I must've been born late. Then I found out my mom had pre-eclampsia for several months before I was born. And a standard procedure for that is to induce just after the person stops being considered premature (basically, get the baby out as soon as safely possible, so as not to endanger both baby and mother), in which case I would have been on time (or rather, early but not early enough to be premature). The second theory matches up with what I'm aware of regarding date of conception. So now I don't know. (And now as I type this I realize the easiest way to find that out would be to ask my mother. I don't know why I never thought of that before.) I do know I was smallish, which would point to being earlyish.
