  • Wow..Your going to let them induce you at two days late? Your upping your chances for a c-section. As far as your questions, I've never heard off getting that before labor. I have heard that the baby slows movement before and during labor.

  • my daughter moved a lot less...i had a clicker thing and i had to click it (it was connected to a machine to count how many times i did) every time she moved so they could make sure nothing was wrong

  • They move a lot less before labor starts.
    I didnt get the runs til the middle of labor, about 1/2 way through active labor I'd say.
    May I ask why youre being induced? You are taking a risk by inducing if its not for any medical reason.
    And dont buy the "late" crap. My DD was born at 42w 2d and is PERFECT.
