  • Nothing really . just fill out the paper work .
    The hospital does the SSN stuff for you and you get it in the mail a couple months later.
    Just rest up while you are there. Congrats on the baby .
    WHo ever says its dangerous is nuts my cousin had a induction and her baby is just fine and so is she.

  • Hey there,
    I had to be induced at 41 weeks as well - don't worry about anyone bashing you, the doctors are doing what is best for you & baby, although I had to sign a waiver acknowledging the risk factors. You'll apply for the SS# at the hospital, but it won't arrive to you until a few weeks later. The staff should walk you through all the paperwork Best wishes & Congrats!
