Quoting Snurrie:" your due the 15th and they want to induce 5 days early?? why? is there a problem or complication? I've ... [snip!] ... weeks doesn't mean labor is minutes away....you could be a bit dilated for weeks and still be full 40 weeks till labor starts."
My OB scheduled me for an induction 7 days early with my now two year old due to Pre-E.
It ended in a c-section before it ever started due to unrelated reasons, and my OB is taking this baby via repeat c-section 7 days early this time too.
It does happen. It's not unheard of lol.
I do agree that people shouldn't be inducing if they don't need too, but it's her OB's call and it doesn't sound too unreasonable to me. If baby does become too big it will end in c-section anyway. and since she's already made cervical progress and she'll be 39 weeks 2 days it sounds legit.
