My son was 41w+1, I got induced and had a c-sec 24 hrs later. My daughter was 42w+1, I got induced (just let them break my waters) luckily I went into labour without any help after that and I had her in the early hours of the next day, 9hrs of labour. I was so happy for getting my VBAC and I had to fight so hard to wait up until 42 weeks, but she still didnt come on her own.

This time, I had an induction booked for tomorrow, 42w+2, but I've cancelled it. I feel okay that baby is still doing well, I'm having NSTs and U/S done every second day from now until next Thursday 4/10 here in Aussie, 43w+2, where I've booked an induction, and I will do that one if she hasnt come out by then. Doctors are not happy of course since I've had a c-sec before, but I think with the successful VBAC, I didnt have to fight too hard to repeat the 42 weeks wait, and now they already know I'm stubborn, the extra 9 days wait I pushed for was not a surprise. So long as she passes the tests, I'll wait for her a little more.
