How many days overdue did you go?

I am actually due today, at my app yeseterday the doc said the baby measured about 8 1/2lbs. My cervix is only 10% thinned out and I'm not dialated at all and the baby has not dropped So he didnt want to risk having an emergency c-section if he were to induce me. He set my next app for NEXT FRIDAY!!! I am so hoping to go on my own before then.

Any of you go 6 DAYS PAST DUE!?! I know I can't go by other people but I just need a little hope I will go before then!

Re: How many days overdue did you go?

With my ds I was about 8 days late before they started to threaten to induce me. Lucky for me after my dr. decided to try to aid the start of labor by scraping my membranes I went into labor the next day. They had to break my water but all in all it was a good pretty to the book labor.

Re: How many days overdue did you go?

I went four days after my due date before going into labor on the day of my "induction" bonus for me. I went in and was four centimeters, 100% so you just never know! You could go into labor tonight! Hang in there!

Re: How many days overdue did you go?

I went 9 days over and it was a blessing, actually. With induction, I got to have the whole day planned out with no surprises. I got my epidural almost immediately after they started up the pitocin, so until I started to push, it was pretty much a day of pain free relaxation. After my labor, I can't imagine walking around my house in the middle of the night in pain, wondering if I should go to the hospital and if I'll get sent back home or not.

But, don't worry, your baby will be here before you know it. Stock up on your sleep now!!! Good luck!

Re: How many days overdue did you go?

My mom told me that I came a month after her due date. This of course was 25 years ago and she refused to let them do anything to help me along. She said I would come in my own time. What a couragious woman. I say induce me and get it over with quick! LOL!

Re: How many days overdue did you go?

with ds i went 8 days overdue, i fell down the stairs at 40+1dy and the stubborn booger didnt budge, i went shopping in town on day 8 and people would ask me when i was due (i was HUGE) i would just i dont know he was due 8 days ago and the look on their faces was hilairious. i also tried everything to start my labour off and nothing worked,,,, although i did have a full day of spicy food and i went into labour the next evening but i just think that was coincidence.

Re: How many days overdue did you go?

I was induced one day after my due date. I told the doctor I wanted him before January 1st so I could collect my tax credit. He came 12/27. Otherwise, I don't know when the stubborn little guy would come out. Also, you can't always rely on ultrasounds. I overheard a woman in the doctor's office saying they did one and told her she would have a nine pound baby. Her baby ended up being just a little over 5lbs.
