Sorry to take so long to respond.
As far as the repeat, If my OB was pressuring to either induce or do ERCS then I would opt for the repeat. Mainly because I would not want a pitocin induced labor, for one thing the risk of rupture is increased and I think it is safer to have a repeat over being induced. If I wasn't comfortable with either, then I may try negotiating for daily NST monitoring or something instead of rushing to the OR at 42 weeks on the dot, especially if I or people in my family are prone to going "overdue".
I agreed to scheduling a 42 weeks repeat, partly because I had to go to a new practice at 41 weeks and the old provider kept mentioning pitocin and stressing me out. I actually relaxed a lot after "knowing" what would happen if I did not go into labor. But, I had gone past 42 weeks (for sure) with my first but he was breech and sometimes breeches will go late (from not being in a good birth position? I don't know, but he was double footling and that isn't a great position). The night of my appointment and scheduling the repeat to get the doctor to chill out, I went into labor. I think it was partly a mental thing for me. The doctor was very cool about discussing her schedule that week and was fine with me going several days over 42 so my "surgery" would be on the evening she was on call which happened to be a Friday and that was the best possible timing for my family etc.
At the time, I also was not sure if something was up with my pelvis that had caused my first to be breech in the first place. And at 41 weeks, I had experienced no impending symptoms of labor, and being a previous l/d nurse, I know the laundry list.
So, essentially, I think if I was pushed one way or another, or had a medical indication to deliver early, I would not agree to misoprostil, cervidil or pitocin induction. Maybe some nipple stim, since at least that is a hormone from your own body.
