In the absence of PE, normal BP, no other issues during the duration of your pregnancy, and no previous c-section that would warrant a repeat c-section, I could see my MFM saying the same. If I would not be forced to get a RPC at 37 weeks after my classical from last time, my MFM let me go till 39 weeks, so he said if everything else was fine.

I asked... He said if there was no pre-e, he wouldn't induce. But, he's assuming there will be. So, he's saying if my bp is normal and no protein or lower than 300, he won't induce.

Hrrrm.... I don't know... I've never made it to 37 weeks without issues, so I can't really speak to how I'd feel about it. I know I always wanted to go to 40 weeks. You might ask him what things he is seeing that is reassuring to him that you would be ok going to 40 weeks.. and I'm guessing he would be fine inducing earlier if things did look off... but maybe also asking what he would consider "issues".

Howdy everyone!! :)

My new MFM, impressed so far btw, said he would have me go to 40 weeks if there aren't any issues. I've been reading just now and see several ladies aren't going any further than 39 weeks. The birth plan with my previous hospital was 38 weeks. Would you be comfortable going full term?? I don't think I am.
