Inducing Me At 39 Weeks

Corrine321 - June 6

Well I had a doctors appt. today, I'm 38 weeks and 1 day... Well I am fully effaced and 3.5-4 cm dilated! I was having some mild contractions today, the doctor said that thats normal, because the baby is just getting ready! My baby girl has been in position to come out for about 4 weeks now... And well the doctor told me I will have her before my next appt or they will talk about me getting induced, but im only 39 weeks at that time.. so why would they be thinking that already? Last week the estimate of her weight was 6.5-7.5 lbs! so I was just wondering! Thanks in advance for the comments!

Hi Corrine. My doc told me the same thing. What they are going to do, is if you haven't given birth by 39 weeks then they will set up an induction date for after 40 weeks. Typically those things have to be scheduled in advance, so they do it at 39 weeks and hopefully you give birth naturally before then! I have my 39.1 week appt in the morning and will let you know what my doc says and when my induction date will be - - although every doc is different, this may help answer some of your questions!

even if it is during 39 I am sure your ok, you have completed full term. Good luck
