Quoting Anna Aho:" I'm about to have my son in a few days or a few weeks. His dad lives about 50 minutes away from me, ... [snip!] ... bitch, don't bother to comment. I'm really not interested in being told I'm a horrible person for considering this. Thank you."
ok.. not being a bitch, or judgemental, but I can give you the facts from a L&D nurse stand point.
being induced increases your risk of c-section. have you thought about the inconvenience of taking care of yourself and baby after a section? most people dont' have their water break.
if its' your first baby... labor is often long, not only is early labor long, but even after you get to 10 cm... most first time moms push for 1-3 HOURS.
while 39 weeks is typically a healthy time to have a baby... induction adds stress to your body and baby, and if your cervix isn't ready.. you'll end up being cut.
