  • youre going to be either induced or c-section if it comes to it.... not to worry i was induced twice and had to have epidural and water break everything they had to do and they still didnt think i was going to have him, they were getting ready for c-section

  • With my first one after 39 weeks I was there every other day. It's a normal thing.

  • That's a lot of appointments. But having an unfavorable cervix is TOTALLY normal. That just means nothing has happened yet. And it means that an induction would probably lead to a c-section, so that's a good reason to avoid an induction. Just keep plugging along. Some mama's aren't dilated at all and go from 0 to 10 in a few hours. :)

  • wow it was every other day for me after 40 weeks! 4 days would have been nice. Every doctor had their own 'rules' so I think it is probably normal for your doctors! Good Luck and happy baby having!

  • the last month i was pregnant, i saw the doctor every other day... i had gest. diabetes, my son was breach and also, they thought my protein was to high.. but it wasnt, it was just because i wasnt drinking enough water...
