We'll see with this one!! I don't relish the thought of going overdue again, but he'll come when he's good and ready!
39 weeks even -- Hurricane Katrina came through the day my labor started, so I wonder if the change in barometric pressure from that (I live in Houston, so not that far from New Orleans) may have jump started things; she was 6 lb 8 oz
Both times I was at least 3 cm dilated at least a few days before the birth, and both times once contractions got regular I gave birth pretty fast.
I was having very small contractions, but 30hrs later I allowed pit DD was born 42wks 2 days vaginally (thank God)
Looking back, considering how I was really just leaking fluid and dd was covered in thick vernix, she may have cooked a bit longer w/o the pit.
Also my dates were not at all sure. My cycles were still wacked out from a m/c 5 months before dd was conceived.

Though the question asks un-induced, I wonder how many people used herbal inductions, castor oil or other methods.

I really hope that this time, my water doesn't just break like that. I don't think my body was ready for him to come out yet... he hadn't even dropped when my water broke.
I was weird, I delivered on my due date exactly.
