no. I had the flu really bad with asthma n it came back with chesty cough but thats all. my ankles are like balloons but with my first child i was overdue by 11 days and had a 36 hour labor after waters broke could that be a good enough excuse cause nothing can be worse than that.
Unlikely, I am afraid. I was induced both times - 1st at 39+6 because small for dates. 2nd at 35+4 because baby stopped growing.
They really don't like to induce unless medically necessary. And past history doesn't necessarily mean a lot. My SIL had a 40hr natural labour with her first, ending with ventouse. Her second was an induction at 40+10, and ended in a 3 hr labour.
I would be very surprised if they agree, but I suppose it depends how persuasive you are and whether they can be bothered to argue harder than you.
