  • they will look at you for about an hour or 2, making you walk around the hospital, if you get any bigger then yes they will admit you

  • They will only admit you at 4 if lets say you went to the dr this morning and were at 2 and showed you were progressing and have contractions, or if your water breaks.

  • and you have to have contractions about 3-5 minutes apart

  • It depends on the doctor. Mine induced me and I was barely at one. But she dropped super early and I was having a hard time walking and I was pissed about it, so I told him to induce me.
    If you are full term and willing to deal with the pitocin, there should be no reason why they wouldn't induce.

  • To induce, as in, there is a health concern? Induction takes on a different context.

    If you're not contracting and are electively requesting an unnecessary induction then it's not likely.

    That circumstance is not in the baby's favor, the staff is more likely to honor the needs of the baby, not adding risks.
