My SIL is due Oct 2nd. I am going out of town Oct 8-11. We are all excited because this is the first niece/nephew/grandchild in either one of our families. She and I were talking and I said i hope she has her baby before I go out of town and she said there is no way they would let her carry the baby a week late. I admit I am a total newb when it comes to this area of pregnancy. How long past due dates do doctors typically let women go before inducing/c-sections? Whenever she has the baby is fine with me, I am not trying to rush her, but I will be pretty bummed if I am out of town and miss it!
