  • Talk to the doctor. They can give you a pill or try this gel on the cervix to get you going.... Its a way to help the contractions pick up (Pill) or get you dialating (Gel) its a form of induction, but it may or may not work- lol they didnt work for me, but they worked for others.

  • you have 2 weeks before you are even overdue. Your baby and body are obviously not ready.

  • Umm, if the above poster is talking about Cytotec, it's usually a pill, doing that could be very detrimental. Cytotec shouldn't even be used anymore. It has caused death.

  • Seriously? Your hospital is moronic then.. I hope you are joking about the C/S rate, that is nothing to be proud of. : / Gah, this country is going to the dumps.

  • No, we dont have the most c-sections, we have the highest rated of being the best at it lol.
    Recovery time is quicker, it was in the news paper..

    And no, my hospital is not moronic...every place is different.. I find your hospital to be weird too just hearing 2 weeks past 40 is over due...thats odd to people over here.

  • I don't birth in a hospital. Human gestation is naturally 37-42 weeks. Inducing before 42 weeks, well is irresponsible. Just look at the literature on it.

    If you want a cesarean, get induced lol. Just because recovery is quicker doesn't mean the risks go down.
