Does that only go towards women who were allowed to labor?
My water broke a week early, it had merconium (sp) so I couldn't walk around or anything. 5 hours after my water broke I hadn't progressed (not surprisingly considering my mom has long labors and I was stuck in bed with barely noticeable contractions). Anyway, I had to have a c-section because of how dangerous the merconium can be. My body never went into active labor or anything.
Could I still go to my due date or after? Obviously, yes, but I'm just wondering if the saying is true a lot of the times and if it still applies to me :] I'd love to not have to get to 40 weeks and be huge especially because big babies run in my family...haha.

Each pregnancy is different. You could deliver earlier, or later, than last time. (That wasn't much help. Sorry.)
