  • Wait as long as possible so that you can avoid all their interventions. If you don't go tonight, you can refuse an induction. You don't have to go along with their plans for you...

  • I lived 45 mins away from the hospital I wanted to go to. I waited till they were 5 mins apart then I got on the road. Now that worked for me... atleast make sure they are consistent before you go. Good Luck!

  • if you want to ensure making it there try the 4 min apart, 1 min long, for 1 hour rule :) Also, if you get a VE when you go there DON"T check in until a 5 or farther... walk if you can, take a bath, and relax. :) It will help your body open up for the birth! good luck and congrats!
