Re: 5 weeks overdue and still not in labor?

I know my body was showing the slightest signs of labor when I was due with my 2nd at 42 weeks. Irregular light contractions, no cervical change at all. My first babe was induced 40w4d, csection 40w6d, zero signs of labor. I think some of us just gestate longer. A mw we are considering said we would expect a 43 weeker and suggested some homeopathic remedies she would give me to try to make sure we had a baby by 43weeks. I am CERTAIN of my dates every time. I chart, have to have early meds not to miscarry, and have early dating u/s.

Eta: I know a girl in my town that just went to almost 44weeks before she gave in to an induction. Obviously I wasn't checking her cervix/temps/etc while she was ttc, lol, but early u/s are pretty common around here, so I'll take her word.
I totally get 40 weeks, I don't consider that abnormal at all or gestating "longer" given that humans are designed to gestate to 40 weeks.

But fortyFIVE weeks and still no signs of labor? Ehh....
