Deciding About Induction

C - September 19

I am now 4 days past my due date. As of last week I was 75% thinned with no dialation. I have an appointment tomorrow and they are supposed to check to see if there is any change and do a sonogram. I am also supposed to have an idea of whether or not I want to be induced or not. Can anyone give me any advice or stories about being induced???

 

MJM - September 19

I was induced with my daughter. They broke my water at 4:45 am and I delivered at 6:45 pm. They say that with induction labor can be longer then normal. I did get an epidural though, which helped and I will get one with this baby also. I am just so happy that we did what we did because when she was born she was totally limp and blue. The cord was wrapped around her neck 3 1/2 times. I could only imagine what would have happened if we would have waited even longer. This may have occured when she was coming down the birth ca___l but we dont know being that we did not do an u/s. But she is a healthy 4 1/2 year old. I would do it all over again. It seems the longer you are over due the more frustrated you become with the pregnancy. Anyway if you feel you can wait wait if you would like it all over with and hold your beautiful baby then get induced! Good luck!
