VBAC 42 weeks?

I'm 41 weeks 3 days and still going. OB said the likelihood of me having a successful VBAC at 42 weeks is probably slim. Baby is likely around 8lbs 12oz (#1 was 8lbs 10oz) Anyone have success that late? Should I be trying a breast pump as a means to stimulate labor? Feeling very defeated......

Too Soon?

Membrane Sweep

At my 39 week Dr. appointment my midwife suggested that I think about a membrane sweep. I am trying for a VBAC after an unplanned c-section with my 1st. They think baby is already around 8lbs. I was 41 weeks 5 days with #1, but feel bad because I feel like this is forcing baby out. Any thoughts ...
