With my last baby I was exactly 42 weeks pregnant when I went into labor all on my own, no medical induction and no trying any of those old wives tales to get me to go into labor...I just waited until my baby and my body were ready, and when they were, things happened naturally with no help...my labor ended up being 4 hours from start to finish! and my baby was perfectly healthy with no health issues whatsoever.
Good luck to you! Just remember that your technically not "overdue" until you hit 42 weeks and even then, if you are healthy and doing good and so it baby, there is no reason to rush to force the baby out if it isnt ready...I dont care what the doctors say about it!
