    I forgot that part in my OP. The reason he won't be able to get a flight back at the times after EDD, is because the company has booked out the flights for staff training and some stupid convention that the exec's have on.

    Any time earlier than EDD and he's fine to fly home almost as soon as I call him to come back.

    I hate his bosses right now.

    I did have my neighbours lined up but they have spent the last 6 months proving that they have no respect for the health an wellbeing of DD and also that the man has no boundaries when it comes to commenting on other's body parts (my b00bies) but only when DP is at work. So not comfortable with them anymore.

    I think I'm just having a poor me/life is crap moment.

    I think the tricky thing with induction is that its also not guaranteed to work. Some women take 2 days to get an induction working, or it just doesn't work at all cause their bodies aren't ready etc. Then you are looking at the possibility of a cesarean, and that would be much harder for you with no support at home and a 20 month old. Speak to your hospital and start getting some support around you. Speak to the social workers there, I am sure they can help you out.

    This is exactly why I went private with my pregnancies because we are in the same situation. I had a social induction for DS at 39w2d so DF could be there, and having an elective c-section this time for the same reason.

    I'm really surprised at how your DP's company is acting. That is pretty poor form in my opinion. I know when the partner's of guys at DF's work go into labour, they do all they can to get them on the first flight out.

    Sorry I don't have any advice, but I really hope it all works out for you!

    Unless the Dr has a different opinion and happy to induce, I think the only option would be for your husband to take his parental leave, carers leave and some sick leave etc. Sorry not sure how the whole FIFO thing works but his company sound like they are being really difficult about it!

    Like PP said, if you go early what will you do, or if you end up with a c/s he'll have to stay longer anyway to help with your DD.

    In the meantime, i'd be getting onto the acupuncture and any other natural induction techniques you can, and see if you can get a doula/student doula who can maybe help out with DD while you are in labour?
