I don't know what to tell you other than choosing a provider that offers evidence based care and use your right to informed consent/informed refusal to decline an induction. You don't HAVE to do anything. And going past 40 weeks isn't a big deal (to be honest, neither is going past 42 weeks, with monitoring)! How far have you gone in your previous pregnancies?

I also might have to be induced. :/

I have been drinking chai with parsley and spices, eating pineapples, going up and down stairs, taking short walks, having sex, and I might get some evening primrose oil this week if baby doesn't show more progress. I've heard really good things about evening primrose oil. Good luck to you!

There are things you can use do to become more comfortable, that carry much less risk than an elective induction. Warm baths, chiropractor visits, sitting on a yoga ball and hip squeezes are just a few options. : )

With my first child i would do squats to bring the baby down. My doctor said that it helps to open your pelvis and allows the baby to apply more pressure to your cervix. Thus helping labor to start.

 have you talked to your Dr about this? does he/she support your choices?

One way to help natural inducement is have your husband rub your feet paying attention to your big toe and area.
