I went to a full 42 weeks... we had the pressure of the back up doc who had done a non stress test and fluid levels were getting low... the night before we would have to go back for the next one (3 days later) and knowing they would want to induce, and knowing i wanted my baby at home without all that crap... i pulled out all stops which included taking Caulopyllum 200 C (which is the homeopathic version of blue cohosh) I had been taking it once a day for the last few months of preg anyway, to prepare things....
One of my books suggesed I take 4 doses (one every 15 minutes for an hour). That's all. That night, in the wee hours.. i went into labor fast and furious. we cancelled our back up appt and had a baby instead!! Things went pretty fast and intense, about 7 hours total. first baby.
As long as things are fine and fluid levels are good etc... you should be able to go as long as you need to. If you aren't taking it, you could try Caulopyllum once a day and see where you go
When my son was born, my midwife showed me the placenta which had been starting to calcify (whiteish spots) in places, so in fact, it was time...
good luck to you.
Wishing you a smooth, easy and graceful birth!!
