Re: How long did you go overdue?

#1. I can't remember
#2. 14 days over EDD, induced. (baby was 9.13)
#3. i elected to be induced on EDD. It worked.
#4. I elected to be induced on EDD. It did not work. Tried again 14 days later. It worked.
#5. Was planning on not attempting induction. I had learned a lot about the "dangers" in the 2 years since last birth. However, LONG STORY.... agreed to CS at 38 weeks due to what I thought was a scarey complication.
#6. Insisted on waiting as long as possible for this baby. Ended up having a RCS 14 days after EDD. VBACs are not happening around here, evidently even "gentle induction" in a VBAC is not allowed according to ACOG "rules". (Baby was 10.3)
#7. Insisted on waiting as long as possible for this baby. Ended up having my 3rd CS 14 days after EDD. VBAC Ban still in effect at all hospitals in my area, except Duluth (an hour away). And in Duluth I could not find any dr. who would agree to VBA2C.(baby was 9.14)

42 weeks 5 days. Repeatedly refused induction. Consented to emergency csection because of low fluid level. Just didn't pass the NST and ultrasound that become routine after 42 weeks one day. Sucked.

eta:
1st on due date
2nd 40w 1d
3rd 43w 5d c/s
4th 40w 2d

other 3 came naturally on their own time

Re: How long did you go overdue?

DD#1: According to the doc I transferred to at 20 weeks I was induced at 41w, 1 day (later when getting records for my home birth I was really induced at 40w,1 day )

DD#2: According to the wheel thingy she came at 40w, 3 days but according to my charting 40w, 2 days (not much of a difference )

Re: How long did you go overdue?

Well according to my date of conception I was at 40 with # 1 and 41 with # 2, but if using LMP I would have been 41 +4 and 42 + 4. So it's tricky because unless you are sure of your dates, who knows what the actual gestation is? The DD wheel only works (somewhat) when a woman ovulates on day 14.
