full term pregnancy

I have compound heterozygous MTHFR with no miscarriages.  Other than taking folic acid, B6, and B12 is there anything I can do to improve my chances of carry to full term.  My doctor does not want me to go past 40 weeks but if there are no complications I would like to continue until labor starts spontaneously.  What are the possible consequences?

We recommend that you speak with your OB/GYN about the medical implications of post-term fetuses.
