Um, how did your mother voluntarily carry you for two extra weeks? Why would any woman do that to herself? Hey, look what an extra two weeks worth produced.
9-25, Libra. I also have a kid who was born on my birthday and another who was due on her dad's b-day.

The shortest version of the story I can fathom:
My mother was told by her doctor that having children would be dangerous for her, and she's had lifelong problems with her reproductive system.
When she was a small child (so she claims -- it's becoming increasingly difficult to believe her since the stories always grow) she dreamed about her future family -- which is why she specifically chose my dad: he looked like the man in that dream. In the dream, her first child was born early and her second was born two months late. So when she did not go into labor, she kept making excuses not to have a c-section or have labor induced.
