This is how I remembered the show. Except they told her she'd have to have a c-section so she got scared and went home. Labor stopped, the baby died and calcified inside her. She was lucky she didn't have a c-section, because with the placenta attached outside of the uterus, she likely would have bled to death after the surgery.

I am fairly certain it's not impossible. My mother was due with me on July 21st and I wasn't born until August 15th (the night before they were going to induce her incidentally, lol). So it is possible to go past 42 weeks and then go into labor on your own also
edit: just wanted to add I was average size too, 7lbs 3oz
