Yes! I did. Induced for DS at 40+16, an experience I never want to repeat. Spontaneous labour with DD at 40+10, a walk in the park.
You DO have options even if your MWs or OBs don't tell you. As soon as you start to consent to S&Ss, ARMs etc you're on the clock. Offer to be regularly monitored. If you start to go over then lots of walking and consider accupuncture, accupressure, pregnancy massages etc.
