I had a home birth at 42w 3d, my water finally broke on its own. I also asked what would happen if I went past 42 weeks at our initial meeting and she went over her protocol which included a biophysical profile to check on the baby and placenta every few days after the 42 week mark. I had my first three children in the hospital (all induced) so I was worried about what would happen if I didn't go into labor on my own. I think your plan is a good one, talk to her in depth about what happens after 42 weeks and I bet you will feel a lot more at ease.
