  • sorry i haven't been induced but i just thought i'd answer since no one else has.

    i think it's true that women tend to go earlier with their second prengnacy than their first. not always but most of the time.

    also, you don't have to be induced just because you are past your due date. you aren't really "late" until after 42 weeks.

    good luck!

  • It could just be that you just gestate longer, and there is nothing wrong with that if it is normal for you. Are you looking to avoid induction this time around? The best thing to do is simply not show up for the appointment, and have lots of sex! :)
