Would any of you induce? at what point? I was reading on another board about inductions. My midwife will let me go "over" as long as it takes, but I don't know how I'd feel if she didn't.

I'd consider induction at 42 weeks. But have never gone more than a few days overdue.

I wouldnt consider induction until 43 weeks, and then Id do natural methods first.

I was 41 & 1 days this time, so I know how rough itis, but usually theres a method to the madness! Id rather go over & be miserable than go in and have an inductino & end up with a longer, harder labor that had an increased risk of ending in a cesarean - just me!

Personally, I dont understnad the reason for induction for post dates alone (no sign of problems). Nobodys been pregnant forever, so minus any complications - its just a problem with patience

What for? If baby is fine and I'm fine, there's no reason to induce and risk winding up with an unnecessary c/s.

Considering that a normal pregnancy length is considered from 38-42 weeks, there's absolutely no need to even think of induction until after that point. You aren't technically overdue until after 42 weeks, yet people get the stupid view that after 40 weeks is overdue. I personally wouldn't want to EVER be induced if everything was okay.
