I am so glad you have raised this question. It is not unreasonable to want to have a trial labour- and I would encourage you to negotiate this with your doctor. many babies only engage once labour starts. Be prepared to be well monitored through labour and make sure that you remain as active and as upright for as long as you can once labour has started. You may consider getting a second opinion. Talk to your doctor and tell him how you feel.
