Re: How many weeks would you be willing to go "overdue" before being induced?

I hear ya! I didn't have it with either of my previous kiddos, of course I was uncomfortable towards the end but this is a whole new ball game.

I'm using a birth center so no induction here unless I go way overdue, or something is wrong...but I fully plan on doing other things to *try* and move things along, like acupuncture.

Oh and this pain started for me at 10 weeks! I was like seriously???

I went to 44 weeks with no complications related to the past-'due' date...had other issues, but they were in no part to do with going that long. As a matter of fact, letting him stay in until he was good and ready gave him the time to turn and drop to 'correct' positioning.

huh. that's so weird. I had eggplant parm about 12hours before going into labor with my oldest daughter. I had it on my due date and there were no signs of spontaneous labor as of 24hours before my due date and my ob specifically said, "see you next week!" 12 hours after eating eggplant parm I was contracting and heading off to the L&D.

there is an eggplant parm recipe online from a certain restaurant that is famous for sending women into labor! Something to do with the spices I think....

I am definitely going to try it if I get to my due date

If I were to have another child (not planning on it), I wouldn't go beyond 40 weeks. And my OB said she'd likely induce b/w 38-39w.

My DD was born @ 40w4d via induction. There were complications (not with the induction, I have a medical condition that went undetected) and I nearly died.

Scalini's in Atlanta is famous for their eggplant parm sending women into labor . I posted a link to the recipe somewhere in this thread, I think.

42 for me too. But as long as everything looked completely normal and I was under supervised MW care, I would consider going longer. Blessings!

I would go 42 weeks, but I don't think I'd be comfortable going longer. Luckily my OB won't even consider inducing until 41 weeks.
