    Heck no! Feel NO guilt!!!!

    When I was in at 40 weeks with no sign of going into labor, we scheduled me to be induced by 40 weeks and 4 days (at my urging). I happened to go into labor naturally and delivered at 40 weeks and 2 days.

    And do you know what? When she looked at my placenta, she said it’s good I didn’t go a week or more over my due date because my placenta was basically used up and wouldn’t have been able to provide optimal nutrition for my baby. (Don’t ask me to explain that- I don’t know, don’t care, didn’t even want to look at the thing. I just trust the expert knows things I don’t.)
