I put 41 b/c I was 40w5d so I rounded up :lol:

Most women, I believe, would go over their "due date" if given the chance to go into labor naturally. Don't get caught up in how much longer but enjoy the days/weeks you have left :)

I didn't poll since I did not go into labor naturally I was induced at 39w 6d however i started dilating at 34wks but stayed at 1cm for about 3wks, then 2cm at 37wks. It wasn't until the end of week 39 I was at 3cm,80% effaced losing plug, lots of intense pressure, irregular contractions, etc etc and started showing definite signs that labor was approaching but still slow...my doctor asked if I wanted to be induced the day before my due date because I was already at an office visit so I went straight over to L&D from there... thats what happened for me.

I went to 41wks + 6days before going into spontaneous natural labour with my first.

I have no problem with going over - in fact last time I was as serene as could be - but this time I'm unable to walk due to sciatica and Diastasis Symphysis Pubis.

So I can't help but hope the light at the end of the tunnel is a little nearer than it was last time. It's difficult to revel in it when your chasing a toddler around on your hands and knees :)

I replied 40 weeks, but in fact I was in pre-labour from 39w4d and it`s hard to tell exactly when it changed into full labour but the cxs got regular at 39w6d and she was born at exactly 40w0d.
