I don't post often, but I have been following this board for a while. Hope you don't mind me butting in on your question. But maybe you could also suggest to her some things she could do to make herself more comfortable (as much as any very pregnant woman can be) while she waits. Reflexology foot massages (which are supposedly another method of natural induction according to my massage therapist), prenatal massages (I get mine at Red Door Spa and they are FAB), acupuncture, etc. Since the doc WON'T induce, maybe she will be open to trying some things that will help her to relax and help her body prepare. Then maybe if she isn't quite so uncomfy, she would find herself a little less anxious and a little less ready to agree to any old procedure?
