I definitely wouldn't agree to an induction reasoned as post dating until after 42w, and that would only be with NST and BPP (non stress tests and biophysical profile)

most first babies dont come until 41w5d, and even more come closer to 42w.

I would definitely seek a 2nd opinion, or if you want to try to start things yourself you can get acupuncture...or bust out a vibrator, have sex, etc..i would stay away from things like castor oil and black cohosh, because they have some risky side effects..but acupuncture has been proven to work in 1-3 treatments (usually about $60/treatment? much cheaper than paying for a c-section)

if i wasnt on my phone i would happily list many more resources, etc...good luck hon
