I am officially 40 weeks today. Went in for my OB appt and everything is still the same. I am still 2cm dilated. BLAH!! Tomorrow I am scheduled to go in at noon to do a NST and ultrasound. They did a membrane sweep at 39 weeks, and did another one today. Lets hope this 2nd time around it will start something up....

Technically, you could go another 2 weeks... I know our hospital doesn't like to do any interventions until 41-42 weeks.

yeah.. my hospital doesn't want us to go over a week. I just don't want to be induced again knowing that I am already going to be overdue. I was induced with both of my kids, so my husband and I wanted to this baby to come on it's own.... since this will be our last one. I wanted to really know what it felt like to have my water break at home and all that great stuff.. lol crazy as it sounds.. but yeah... just hopefully though something happens tonight since my OB did another membrane sweep

Even women who go into labor naturally dont always have their water break naturally. You dont have to be induced if you dont want to be. They can just monitor you and baby closely you can usually safely go to 42 weeks and with proper monitoring even 43-44 weeks.
