    DS was born at 42 weeks (induced only by ARM as I was already 4cm dilated)

    DD was born at 41 weeks spontaneous labour.

    42 weeks. That was the day I had a caesarean. I was induced on Day 10, Day 11, Day 12. On Day 13 past my EDD, it was decided that nothing was happening as a result of the inductions, and that my cervix was still too tightly closed to consider breaking my waters, so a caesarean it was.

    The only ill-effects my daughter suffered were the result of her caesarean arrival rather than me going over. In future, I'll happily go to 42 weeks before even considering anything else, unless there is evidence (more than just because I'm past the magical 40 week point) that the baby needs to come out sooner.

    I went 13 days over on DS, we were monitored and he was born very quickly no intervention!

    I've never been overdue.

    2 days early with DD1 was as close as I got.

    DS was 37 weeks.

    I went in to labour with DD2 at 34 weeks and again at 36 weeks, and then had her at 38 weeks.

    I went to 41+3, was booked to be induced at 42 weeks but bub came by himself before. No prob with bub or placenta.
    My mum swears she was almost 44 weeks with me, everyone says she must have got the dates wrong but she says not.

    She's in good spirits
    I personally don't want to be induced again because I'm so terrified of needing another emergency c-section, I had to have it under a general (not by choice!) and would be devastated to have it happen again. DF and I have discussed that when I'm pregnant next time that the week I'm due we'll be DTD as much as possible, loads of walking on my treadmill and acupuncture so I hopefully don't need induction lol.
