If you could, would you make yourself go in to labor at 35,36 or 37 wks?

If inducing worked, would you do it? I would like to have my baby at 37 weeks. Soem say it's selfish but they are considered full term then. I'm having a c-section anyways at 39 wks, just asking...

  • I was induced at 38 weeks. Every thing turned out great. I didn't get induced because I CHOSE to. I needed to.

  • My son was born at 36 weeks after I was induced because of medical reasons. Although he is healthy he did have some minor complications that would have been avoided if he was farther along. Why risk even a minor complication?

  • I would have at 37 weeks, but nothing worked. They all came a bit early anyway.
