  • Most doctors won't let you pass 42 weeks...if they haven't talked induction with you, I'd be mentioning it.

  • Yeah you should not go past 42 weeks it can actually be bad for the baby... If doc hasnt set something up yet for when you reach 42 weeks you need to say something to him/her.

  • 75% of babies are born between 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the due date, with fewer than 10% on the due date (including scheduled c-sections).

    If you have a longer than 'normal' cycle, or got pregnant late in your cycle, you may only just be coming up on 40 weeks. The charts are based on averages, and I have never yet met an 'average' mom.

  • i went over my due date and the doctor said that he does not let his patients go more 10 days overdue..but 42 is the "limit" then the placenta starts to deteriorate and we all know thats not good for baby...i was induced 10 days after my due currently 15w with #2 and im hoping i dont go overdue worry baby will be out soon and you will forget about how uncomfortable you have been.. :)
