Oh, WOW. She needs a 2nd opinion ASAP. I agree that due dates aren't off by 2 weeks these days - unless her OB is confusing her LMP and O dates? Still, you said she knows her dates so OB sounds like an incompetent idiot.

Isn't the reason why (usually) women aren't allowed to go far past their due date that baby might start passing meconium in the womb?

Maybe her weight and generally being super out of shape are preventing her from going into labor on her own?

My SIL has had 4 babies, the last 2 w/o epidural, BUT she had to have pitocin w/ 3 if not all 4 of her babies. She just doesn't go into labor on her own (or maybe she asked to be induced, I don't know) but once she gets pitocin things start moving fast.
