Im 40 weeks 3 days today and i refuse to be induced..yes im miserable and sick beyond belief but why force him out? I see so many women getting induced (not for medical reasons) but because they dont want to wait a few days over their due dates. Be patient! Baby will come. Our bodies are made for this!!!

Vent over :)

  I was exactly 42 weeks when my son decided to come... That being said, I hope baby girl doesn't stay in there that long over her due date.

Im sorry that happened!!! Another reason to not get induced! I see so many ladies impatient saying they dont want to be induced but their going to have to in 2 days or 3 days and their only 40 weeks!! They dont have to the doc offered it and they accepted. Doc said i can hebe induced at any time i told him no thanks lol :) no point in forcing your body

As lng as my doc says everything is fine with the baby i will wait until he comes. Im already dilated and effaced so its not like hes going to be in there forever.

Yea but they can also be off on your due date by 2 weeks so me being 40 weeks now i could only be 38. But i doubt he will stay in that long. The longest i went overdue was 6 days.so i guess we will see
