No. A normal pregnancy will naturally go between 38 and 42 weeks. Many (including me) thinks it would be much more accurate to give a mom a due month rather than an EDD. There are slight risks to going beyond 42 weeks, but with today's technology doctors can have a better idea what's going on and if something needs to be done. One of my friends went to 42 weeks, 6 days (she did have tests done starting at 41 weeks and baby always passed without issue) and everything went great (this was a VBA2C too!). Baby came when she was ready.
