Only good news, is I had my doc appt and he said I am 2 cm and 50%. Well, Atleast I'm progressing. Doc scheduled me for an induction, which I don't want! I hope this baby comes naturally. Last night I had some pretty knarley contractions. I was almost 100% sure was in labor. Took a bath just in case. And poof! they were gone.. Well.. Now I guess we just continue the waiting game............

Why would they schedule you for an induction? I mean as long as you and baby are okay I don't see why they would?

You can say no to the induction. They cannot force it on you.

I have found that making a list of fun things to do from due date on is helpful. I always bake them longer (longest was 41w 6d) so I ignore my due date by this point.

Sometimes taking a bath in early labor can stall things/stop contractions. Maybe try walking, nipple stim and some BD to get things going :) they shouldn't induce you for a while! Baby is perfectly fine taking his/her time

No, this is not my first. I went 2 days past my ODD with my son.

If you don't want the induction, don't go. Simple!

Doc said they don't allow women to go past 41 weeks to prevent risks..

Good thing it doesn't matter what they "allow"! :D They cannot legally drop you from care within 30 days of your due date and cannot force any medical decision onto you.

They work for you. Would you allow any other employee to tell you how to run your business?

Then, your doctor is not following the American Congress of OB/GYN guidelines on post-dates! You have FULL 42 weeks before your provider should mention induction, if you and baby are well. You have the right to decline any procedure you feel is unsafe (such as an unneeded induction). Here is more info!
