I'm 40 weeks 2days pregnant. I have been dizzy, not eating, feeling like I'm going to puke, the works. three ago my fiance couldn't wake me up. well I really didn't want to go to l&d just to be sent home again so I called my midwife. she said I have a choice between getting induced wed and thurs...i want wed because I can't stand feeling this way... I want thurs because the midwife on call for wed is one who doesn't know what evening primrose is... she doesn't seem compitent in a lot of areas and I worry about that... the midwife on call for thurs is my favorite... she is the woman I want to deliver dd... which would you do? would you deal with one more day if it meant a better midwife?Answer Question

YES! wait one more day. I made the HUGE mistake of being induced by a midwife I did not know and it was a disaster.
And who knows if you wait maybe you will go into labor naturally

ohmama213 she is NOT way over due. Overdue is AFTER 42 weeks. She only just 40! Sheesh.
I personally would wait to labor to start on its own. I'd rest rest rest, hydrate, and eat one bite of something and hour if that's what it took.
IF you insist on inducing, wait for the better person and BE SURE your Bishop Score is favorable for an induction or it will likely not work.
