Another option you could try to push for is that pregnancy is affecting day to day living. I mean you have other kids to care for and if you're in a ton of pain daily that you're having a difficult time caring for your other kids (even if you're not how are they going to know?) then that is grounds for an earlier induction.

I have a friend who is currently 38 weeks and is supposed to be having a c-section today. Honestly I don't know how she pushed to have it so soon when at the birth center I've always gone to they will only do a c-section if you go overdue and are having a difficult time pushing out the baby or unless medically necessary, neither of which apply to her.

I've tried myself to get my midwife to induce me this pregnancy without any avail. She just won't consider it until I'm at least a week overdue. I don't want to honk my own horn since I know the start of this post was because it bothered you that others you know have went early, but I had my last son at 35 weeks and he weighed almost 8 lbs already. All of my others have been large for dates too and this baby was actually predicted to be even larger than my last son so I'm worried that if I go much longer than 37 weeks I won't be able to push him out. My midwife won't even be swayed to induce me even when I tell her that. It's so frustrating not to have much of a choice in birth

Yeah that is something i could try and use i suppose, I just don't know if they will see it as a valid reason, they have no sympathy at all my hospital it feels.
Wow 8lb at 35 weeks thats huge!! I hope you manage to persuade your midwives for early induction! X
