I had it with all three. Had it done with my first at 39 weeks. Had him at 39 +4. Had it done with my second son at 38+2 had him 39 weeks even. And lastly my daughter, 39 +6 had her the next day.

But it's not recommended. Due to the risks. Do some research.

37.5 weeks due to a "big baby" (he was less than 8lbs).  it caused my water to leak which lead to failure to progress and I ended up with a c-section.  My son was in the nicu for a week for reasons still unbeknownst to me.  you should read my journal entry on the subject.  It just really isn't worth it
