Did You Get All The Way To 2 Weeks Overdue

Hi. I was just thinking i have hardly known anyone to go 2 full weeks past their due date. Is this because most doctors like to induce before this, because most moms insist on inducing, or just because it doesn't usually go that long naturally? I just wondered. My doc told me yesterday that he will not induce before two weeks past the due date, which is fine with me, but made me think about it. Your experiences?

With my first baby the dr. didnt schedule my induction until a few days before 42 weeks. With the first they dont like to induce you earlier because of the chance of having to have a c-section. I delivered just fine but those extra 2 weeks were a drag, because I know we are all ready to deliver at 37 weeks when they say thats full term. Before they induced me I had no signs whatsoever of labor coming on its own. I am on baby number 2 and this time they will induce me at 39 weeks if I havent delivered by then, cross my fingers Im 36 weeks and I hope I go on my own before then.

Thanks, Dez. How big was your baby at nearly 42 weeks?Good luck with going on your own and also a wish for a speedy, easy delivery for you!

Well she was 7lbs 6oz so she wasnt big for being overdue, but this one they told me that he was already at 6lbs when I was 34 weeks. I am almost 37 and still have no signs of going into labor, Im so jealous my aunt had her baby on Friday and we were the same amount of weeks pregnant. How far are you?

I am only 17 weeks, but I am just wondering how it will all go. I was hoping that going more than 40 weeks was rare- I think it would be so difficult to just keep waiting that long!
