    Ive been told that you cant go anymore than 12 days over as your placenta stops working. I had to change that in my birth plan as i thought it was 14 days.

    With my son my doctor would have only let me go about a week overdue. I'm not sure with this one though. Not that far along yet. It may have just been because of my age though (I was 16).

    Here the most they like you go go is 14 days and even then they usually want to induce before that. Ultimately though it is your body, your baby, your choice. After my first induction I am going to do anything I can to avoid it. Especially since I don't know my dates etc.so anything could go lol

    Got my 40 wk check up tomorrow (OMG its my EDD tomorrow!!!!) and they won't do a sweep until 41 wks but I'm going to ask very, very, very nicely. Over than that its 10 days max.

    I don't believe I'd have the option of sooner than 40 weeks because I have a "normal healthy pregnancy" so they won't induce before the due date, but I believe (if I remember correctly) that I can ask for one after 40 weeks.

    Sorry, this is a bit of a bugbear of mine. They don't LET you do anything! They can advise you to accept induction, but you can refuse (I did). If you refuse they should then offer you regular monitoring to ensure that baby is fine and the placenta is working well. Remember that you're not even overdue until you hit 42 weeks as a normal human gestation lasts 38-42 weeks.
