Wanting advice.

Hi mamas! I'm currently 37 weeks 4 days today with my second child. My water never broke on its own with my first, and I had to be induced at 41 weeks.
My question is, how likely is it that my water will break on its own this time? Do you think I will need to be induced again since I had to be induced with my first pregnancy?
Thanks in advance!

Several women go over with their first, but it's less likely this time. There are several things you can do to try and get labor started on your own (nipple stimulation, sex, walking, pineapple, spicy foods, evening primrose oil, raspberry leaf tea, etc.) I was induced at 39 with my first while dilated to a 3 and I believe evening primrose oil helps prevent tearing (insert gel capsules vaginally). I only got 1 stitch as a safety measure but I didn't actually tear. My baby was 8.1 and 21.5 in.

my #1 was natural birth at 41weeks (waters broken for me).
#2 was induced at 41+6.
am due in 3 days with #3 and have no idea what to expect :p ((I can barely remember what going into labour naturally feels like after 9 years))
plan for all scenarios though :p
