Is getting induced a good idea/bad idea? Is it even possible to be induced before your due date? All thoughts appreciated
You need to weigh the cost/benefit ratio. I was induced at 37w5d with my twins because I was HUGE. I had both vaginally, and no complications. I was a VERY hard labor. I have heard that it is much harder with pit that without it.
If your baby is VERY large, you have pre-E, uncontrolled diabetes, or other health concerns, then an induction might be a good option for you. If you are just anxious about meeting your baby and uncomfortable, I would suggest waiting until you are at least 41-42 weeks.
Letting your body go into labor naturally, if there aren't any health concerns IMO, is best.

I was induced with all 4 of my kids. I didn't have any complications and had them all naturally (with epi's). I think it all depends on your DR and how much you trust him/her. I trust my DR implicitly. He birthed my youngest brother and has been a part of our family for over 16 years now. I wouldn't trust anyone else.
