How far past 42 weeks have any of you ladies gone? I know 42 weeks is typical, but I've never heard of anyone going past that. Just curious!

I've only ever made it to 41 weeks. There's a mama that just had her baby a couple days shy of 43 weeks I believe.

There's a mama in here who just had an unassisted birth at 42 + 5, I believe.

My longest was 41+4.

I have seen a post term newborn so I would never go past 42 weeks unless there was MAJOR questions about how accurate my dates were.

No :( Induced.. 23 hour labor when I was pushing they stopped me and rushed me in for emergency c-section. He was healthy at least

I went to 42 weeks and that was plenty for me.

Are they just big, or what? :/
