I'm a ftm and I was just wondering if any other mommies went over their due dates? Is it a bad thing or is it normal? I've tried walking, sitting on my birth ball, more walking..any advice/suggestions/stories any mommies are willing to share would be much appreciated I'm feeling really sad that my baby hasnt decided to come yet :(

Ftms can go 41-42 weeks. Also depends on the accuracy of the edd which is just an estimation. Baby will come when ready.

But try this since I think I saw that you're at 40 weeks already

Okay thank you! Im 40wks 3 days and I think if my baby isn't here by Friday my ob wants to induce me.

My last 2 babies came after 40 weeks
My daughter was 41 and my son went to nearly 42 weeks I think I had 3 days to go till I was 42.
My midwife had me booked in to be induced but my body went into labour naturally.

Don't be scared
Babies come when they come and it's a normal thing to go over due date or be over 40 weeks and Alot of women have to be induced
All normal

I went to 42 weeks with both my daughter and son and had to be induced...it happens but they say post term babies are stronger and healthier so be proud!!!
