Post Term


Asalam O Alaikum, I am 40 weeks + 4 days pregnant. My due date was 13 August. I am waiting and waiting for labor. The doctors in the hospital first asked me for induction but I discussed with them about waiting for normal labor pain to come and they said ok.. We can wait. Also because the due date is not always very accurate... But now it is becoming really irritating for me. I really want the natural pains to come. They wait maximum 10 days extra beyond the term.. It is my first time, I live away from family. I dont know what to do. Please guide me.

Its ur choice now that u told ur doctor u like to wait,then wait it gets
more difficult to deliver as the baby gets bigger n also baby is tired of
being in a cramped up space.Listen to ur doctor go for induction n if
nothing happens in few hours seedha c.section

Almost 2 weeks ago. AFI was little less which is now normal.
They say my baby weight is less (2.7-2.8kg) which is not actually less according to Pakistan statistics. And they also agree to it that it is less according to German people but not Pakistani's.
I am unable to decide whether I should ask them to wait more or should I go for induction.
