So is anyone in this group currently over due?
Have your doctors suggested anything to help moving labor along?

It's pretty rare that any of the mamas here ever hit 42 weeks, we've had 2-3 in the past year, maybe. :)

I would go crazy if I went over due to 42 weeks.

 Not right now, but I have been past my due date two times before.  I remember how tiring it was.  They both came about a week past my due date.  Hang in there mama!  (hugs)

not right now, I'm not pg anymore. My last LO was born August 2011 LOL I still just lurk here :) living vicariously through you all

BUT my last LO I went to 42 weeks. I seriously was about to start charging him rent. heehe

I did everything "naturally" speaking to try and get labor going. Acupuncture, chiropractor, homeopathic drops and tablets like Black and Blue cohosh, castor oil (WHICH DO NOT DO, WAS THE WORST THING EVER! I can not stress that enough) sex, walking breast pumps.

Unless baby is ready nothing will make you go into labor. :(

I feel like I could make it to 42 weeks! His dad is leaving for 6 mo on the 7th of next month though and I want him to be able to spend a little time with him before he goes /:

Not currently, but my first baby was 40w4d and my second was 41w6d.  Some oldies might remember the second one, I was a mod on this board when I was pregnant with him.  I tried EVERYTHING (non-medical) to encourage labor with my son, but in the end, babies come on their own time.

Not really. My first was over her due date by two days. That doesn't really count but they were a LONG two days. LOL
