I'm not a UCer (homebirther and lurk a lot) but saw this and had to reply...since you wanted late babies and good outcome stories
My daughter was 41 weeks and 3 days, not quite as long as you are but close enough. She was a big girl, 10lbs 4 oz and about 2 feet long, but her dad's side of the family tends to have large babies. She had meconoium in her water but I think that was largely due to the interventions I took to induce labor (a "vigorous" sweep & stretch by my OB, AROM, and epidural and a cohosh concoction I took myself when my OB was threatening induction) and not by her overdue status.
My son was 41 weeks and 1 day. He was quick and easy, 7lbs 7oz, a calm and completely uneventful birth. He still had a lot of vernix covering him as well.
Given my past births, I can accept that my body needs to cook babies past 41 weeks. Knowing that, I would not be concerned going up to 42 weeks at all, personally, and since my homebirth midwife knows my history and accepts this as well, I know I'll be much more relaxed if/when I head into the 41st week since I won't have the threat of induction looming over my head.
