My oldest sister is pregnant with her first baby!! Omg! I'm just soo happy! Her due date passed 3 days ago,& nothing has happened, lol it's like I'm just waiting for her to call and say it's time!
Anyways this had never happened to me, I'm always on my due date or before,I know everybody is different,but how many days past your due date before they induced you?

LOL it depends on the doctor.  My SIL's doctor would not induce until she was over a week past due but she ended up going into labor 8 days past her due date, the night before they were going to induce her (by request).

They usually give you up to 2 weeks after.  Anywhere from 38-42 weeks is considered a normal gestation. Most docs consider you full term at 37.

Dr. induced me almost a week past my due date. We tried having sex on a due date and it didn't help lol.

I was a week late and they kept pushing induction back.  I started on my own but they used the meds to help speed it up.

 I woke up in labor 5 hours before I had to be in the hospital for an induction, 10 days past my due date, with my 1st.

At almost 41 weeks, I had a non-stress test. DS was fine but my fluid was low so we scheduled another non-stress test and induction for the following Monday and Tuesday. He was born that Sunday. With DD, she was late but before any additional testing was scheduled. I was also more dialated with her at 40 weeks than I was with DS.

depends on the doctor and the area...and the pregnancy... sometimes only a couple of days sometimes they let it go a couple of weeks

Depends on the OB - with my first, they would not induce until I was 2 weeks past my due date. With my second - they would only allow me to go 1 week past my due date.
