  • I went to 41 weeks last time. Baby came spontaneously, MUCH! better than the previous induced labor. (!!!)
    If you're planning to induce simply for being past "The Estimated Due Date" then you might want to investigate your risks vs benefits.
    I have plenty of information and am happy to share, just let me know. ;-)

  • I am with them. There's no reason to induce. I had my DD naturally at 42w 2d and she weighed 7lb 4.5oz and came out perfect!
