  • probably, but, i wouldn't recommend it. you should wait until your baby and body are ready. i was induced with my first and ended up a long painful augmented labor that lead to a c-section. my body and baby weren't ready at 2 days past due. don't get's awful.

  • My doctor had told me that she would induce me on my due date with my first daughter. I didn't even end up getting to my due date though. I had to be induced at 36wks because she wasn't moving and such. It was a horrible experience!!! Being induced forces your uterus to contract and it comes on hard and strong! If you can hold out, I would highly suggest it!! My best friend was induced with her second child, and she said there was a world of difference in the contractions. But whatever you choose, be happy with it. As long as your lil guy gets here safely:)

  • if your baby is ok and you then i would wait till you are ready due dates are not always exact. go with what your body tells you. i was induced i had twins so they had to but it was not a horrible experience i was not in labor forever and i had them vaginally, everyones body is different talk to your doctor if you dont agree or your alternatives and walk a lot these last couple days so your baby moves into position good luck
