When I was pregnant my doctor was telling me he didn't like to go past 10 days overdue, but in the end he was going to let me go 2 weeks over if I wanted. It didn't make a difference because my baby ended up coming 10 days late. Anyway at my 6 week appointment yesterday he was suggesting I induce earlier next time so that I have a smaller baby. I had a 9 lbs baby which is big but doesn't seem that huge to me considering how late he was. He was hard to push out but I've healed just fine. It just made me curious what other doctor's recommend. So mine prefers to induce by 10 days overdue and likes to avoid babies getting to be more than 9 lbs. (or maybe that's just his recommendation for me) But he was willing to let me go longer if I really wanted to.Answer Question

My OB knows that I prefer to be as intervention free as possible. So, at the 43rd week is when we'd start talking induction.
With my 1st, I went 13 days past my original due date. I did have an extra ultrasound and NSTs during that time to make sure all was well. I went into labor on my own and delivered a 9lb 2oz baby without issues.
With my 2nd, I went into labor on my own the day after my due date... so it wasn't an issue. (She was 10lbs 1oz and we still didn't have any major issues)
