    after your overdue do they leave u until they induce u.
    i have a funny feeling im going have to be induced - just cus i dont want to be! :wall:
    my next midwife appointment is on the 5th dec ill be 5 days overdue then will she wait until my next appointment to book me in to be induced? or will she do it then. if she waits will i have another appointment sooner cus i only usually see her every 2 weeks but by then ill be almost 3 weeks over?
    sorry if that sounds stupid but every1 i asks says they aint sure :D

    around here we had a choice of t+10 if mom is really uncomfortable or t+14 if they aren't bothered. typical me picked a hospital in a different county and they said they only did t+12.

    If you go overdue they won't leave you without an appointment for 2 weeks. I had my last MW appointment on my due date, then had another booked for 1 week over. I ended up giving birth 8 hours before the appointment so didn't go :wink:

    Maybe baby will surprise you and decide to come on time!

    It depends on the hospital policy you are giving birth at. Generally its between 10 and 14 days.

    The MW should ring and book a date for induction on your next visit. I was induced at 11 days over with my 2nd and with my 3rd I was booked in for 14 days over but I went before that anyway.
