Hi,Rejendra thanks for query.Depending upon many factors doctor will decide whether to wait or not.They are your general well being,ultrasound report indicating maturity of baby and its weight,amount of fluid inside,position of placenta,position of head,whether down or still floating above pelvis bones .Depending upon all this the decision it taken about mode of delivery and time of delivery.Bye.
