I've been 3 cm and 75% effaced for weeks now, but only bh contractions so far. I just keep telling myself that I will have a baby within a week and that helps!
Good for you for letting baby choose their own birthday, Mama! And remember, "post-dates" is over 42 weeks, not 40 weeks, according to the American Congress of Obstetricians & Gynecology. An OB/GYN who pushes for an induction before that without medical cause should be referred to his or her professional guidelines.
