How Long Should a Woman Feel Comfortable Going Overdue?
I would never put a number on how long a woman should feel comfortable going “overdue.” For one thing, errors are too easily made in recording of dates, and length of natural gestation varies widely, not only from woman to woman, but also from baby to baby. Instead, I would just focus on my overall health and the well being of the baby. We all have a wisdom inside us that we need to listen to, to let us know if something is not quite right to the point of needing intervention, be it early or late in the pregnancy. Plus, there are physical signs of wellbeing that are common sense that I can always look for. Is the baby moving like usual? Am I feeling well?
