  • I have No idea she just checked if i had dilated more then i felt her doing something else and then after she finished she told me she did that.

    And right now im having alot of pain on my left side is it just like something pulling or stretching?????????

  • She did that way to early unless you were having fetal stress or some other condition,she should of waited die to risks to you & baby.
    If your overdue maybe than consider this induction option,i would be upset what she did.
    That pain,makes me think she hit something i do not know but i would get checked,good luck to you!

  • She sounds to me not right in her practice nobody does this technique before your due date,especially that many days or induces before,does she not care about the babies health or yours?
    I would get checked by another doctor.

  • most places won't induce till the due date unless there is a need due to medical reasons (baby big for date, gestational diabetes, high bp, protein in urine or something like that) if your walking around dilated to 3 for weeks and very effaced they might induce early but 2 and 80 I don't know. You have a very good chance of being an easy induction and if you don't go on your own this week you should be really close. Maybe she said that because she thinks you'll have delivered by then. How many kids does this make for you? With my fifth I was 3/80 when they induced half way into 38 weeks because I live far from the hospital and have a history of faster labors (one was only 3 hrs) she thought I'd have that baby in the car.

  • I know lots of doctors who induce before the actual due date simply because after 37 weeks, your baby is good to go. They only getting fatter in the last couple of weeks. It was wrong of her to strip your membranes without your consent, but other than that it sounded like you were already on your way.
