    if all is otherwise fine and just the baby is late, how much overdue do they let you go before intervening?

    does it vary according to hospital?

    just working out all scenarios so i can try to sort my life out :wall:

    thanks, i'll assume a t+14 to be on the safe side

    we can swing a 2 week period at home around when she's due and im sure she will be late rather than early..... :pray: :pray:

    It varies from hospital to hospital. They leave you till you are T+7 before offering you a sweep and would probably set an induction date for sometime between T+10-T+14

    With my fourth i wasn't sure of my dates (was on mini pill) when i had scan at 20 wks it said 5th of april.....but as i always go over and have big babies we fiddled the dates i had him on the 24th he was overdue but not in danger...was well monitored he was down as term +14 but as you can see from the scan date he was 19 days over.....I refused to be induced.....but i'm like that ...not one for chemicals...used 15ml of castor oil in the end and it did the trick :rotfl: had him at home too :D
