She knows my history of 42+ weekers so I don't think either of us will get concerned until 43 weeks. My last midwife had a 44 week cut off, at that point she either broke your water at the center hoping to start labor or you could opt to go to the hospital for an induction.
Forty-two before she really started pushing for the induction. Next baby, I will likely be with her again and I don't know that I'll accept induction talk until forty-four weeks (Orion went forty-three weeks plus three.).
I think she said she'll let me push over 42 weeks, but I'll try as many natural induction techniques as I need to if we get to the point of a medical induction. I was hoping not to worry about it this time, but it looks like we'll have to talk about it in a few days when I see her again
