Quoting mama liz:" im due tomorrow and with every doctor appointment theres been no change. the doctor said my cervix has ... [snip!] ... out, the dr said im not even at the point of getting induced. so my biggest question is whether or not to get induced???"
my due date was yesterday and my midwife scheduled me to be induced when im 41 weeks
I know some mommas who go to 43 weeks =O.. But my BP has been a little high lately and my babys dad is in the military nd getting deployed soon so we decided to set an induction date.
being induced can make labor horrible, or awesome. I know some people who have labored for like 3 days after being induced, some only a few hours. But i know it makes the contractions come on strong and hard right off the bat, well thats what my midwife told me. 41 weeks is safe to be induced, my doctor wanted to induce me sooner but their was no openings. I think anytime after your due date is a safe time to be induced.
Keep in mind, your induction could fail if your body isnt ready. I know it sucks to think about, so stay positive. No matter how the baby comes out, just be glad the baby is coming out.
