I will be 42 weeks on Monday, and if our little one does not come along by himself before then we have an induction scheduled to begin on Sunday night. We are still hoping for our natural birth, but what will be, will be.
I need to hear some encouraging words from other mum's who carried to 42 weeks or who plan to do so. I know in my rational mind that carrying to 42 weeks is just fine if mum & baby are doing well (which thankfully we are), but sometimes the opinions of others get to me and make me jumpy (I have had many comments such as 'why haven't you been induced yet?' ; Isn't it dangerous to keep the baby inside this long?) For this reason we are not telling anyone except our parents about the scheduled induction, but still people can't help giving their unwanted 'advice'!!
Thanks in advance for any supportive words
