I think that is how many women end up with unnecessary inductions and all other sorts of interventions. It is just not true in many instances, because most OBYGN professionals know next to nothing about normal
pregnancy and birth. And the majority of women get their maternity care from that type of cp.
I think you have to go by what's going on with your body. Is the baby still moving around at his normal rate (things slow a bit as it gets more crowded in there)? Are you feeling well?
I personally wouldn't even bat an eyelash until after 42 weeks. Most first time moms go past that 40wk mark, but few go past 42 by more than a few days. Maybe if I got to 43, and I was sure of my dates, then I'd start thinking about taking a closer look.
