Call your OB: If i was your OB , you would not be having those probloems now because i deliver all of my pts by 40 weeks, new studies show the ideal time to deliver is 39-40 weeks, once you go past your due date you are potentially asking for problems, if i was your OB i would send u to the labor room and if give u cervadil if necessary and get the baby out, but call your ob, no reason to suffer at 40 weeks!
