Re: How long did you go overdue?

I let my babies come when they are ready and would not consent to an induction or any other medical intervention unless necessary.

The twice weekly biophysical profiles and non-stress tests after the forty-first week sure are an annoyance, though!

At 9 days overdue I had a membrane sweep, labor started naturally 12 hours later. He was under 7 pounds so he definitely needed to cook, but I was desperate to avoid an induction so I'm happy I had the sweep.

DS was 5 days late, water broke naturally at 3am looking for food. Lol! Although labor didn't progress at all so had to be given oxytocin (assuming it was pitocin) to get things happening. Think it was due to cervical scarring because once the scar material broke I was to 10 in no time. Born at 8lbs 4oz. 21.5 inches.

Re: How long did you go overdue?

DD was 5 days late. Ironically, the due date was 100% accurate b/c she was an IVF baby, so it just goes to show you that your body will decide when it's the right time
