Answer: Hi, YOu have an increased chance of needing to be induced again. Some women do have longer pregnancies than others and your labour may start naturally but it may be after your midwife or doctor may be prepared to wait. THe vaginal loss may be just an increase or you may be leaking urine. Please discuss this with your midwife. You need to be regularly doing your pelvic floor exercises. Best wishes, Alex.
