I'm at 40+6 right now and planning a homebirth. I can go a little beyond 42 weeks and still birth at home, so I'm not too worried right now. Also, DS2 came at 42 weeks, so I guess I maybe tend to carry a long time.
Anyway, my midwife offered to do a "stretch and sweep" next Tuesday if I want to. I'm sure babe will just come when he/she is ready, but I'm curious to know if anyone had this and if so, does it hurt and was it effective? My instinct says not to do it, but I guess if I went beyond 42 weeks, it might be something to try.
