One of the most visited and commented on pages on Pregnancy Birth and Beyond is the one on being overdue. I thought it would be far better to start a thread on being overdue and any questions you may have. To start this thread off one of our website visitors asked the following:

Hi there, I am currently 40 weeks and 3 days overdue, I a booked in for a induction next wednesday 31st august 2011, how quickly wld i go into labout after being induced, wld it be on the day I cld have my baby or days after, I had c section with my 3 year old, so i had no real proper pain etc with her as she was brich,i had no contractions etc and she was 11 days early, so a natural birth to me is all quite frightening.
Can you help, share your experience or offer suggestions?
