Re: How long overdue do you have to wait?
Most of the time it is when you near your second week overdue. Depending on your OB or midwife will mostly tell. One of my best friends was allowed to go over by 3 and a half weeks! crazy huh? I'm going about a week and a half over before they will induce but hopefully I will go before then. It's a week away so cross your fingers. And im sure you will go near your due date so I wouldnt worry about going over, but dont erase it from your mind completely because its always a possibility.
