  • Shoot...I was 4cm dilated at 36 weeks with the first two and I was sent home from the office. I was also induced at 39 weeks because they were suspected to be large....

  • I've been induced and gone natural, and trust me you do not want to be induced unless it is medically necessary. I know at the end it is hard to wait, but being induced hurts like hell and raises the odds that you will need other interventions or a C-section. Just be patient!!

  • It depends on the doctor but unless they found risk to the baby or myself in anyway, I wouldn't want to be induced.

  • A good doctor will NOT induce you at 37 weeks, no matter what you are dilated! Some women apparently have bad doctors.
