I am 38 weeks! What week were you when you went to the hospital to have a baby?! (not for those who were induced)

Doctors keep pushing induction, but its not completely medically necessary yet--ive been borderline pre-e.. they would induce me now if I said okay!

Im trying to wait it out and go on my own...

What week did you go into labor by YOURSELF w/ no induction?

  • I went at 39w3d according to their due date, but 40w6d according to mine. Why do they want to induce you? Do you have gestational diabetes or pre-eclampsia?

  • I was not induced for either pregnancy. I had my first son at exactly 36 weeks. I had my second son at 37 weeks and 3 days. Both were healthy babies.

  • I started going about 36 weeks a few times a few until I gave birth. I have 4 children and I had all 4 on the due date. That did not stop me from going to the hospital or my doctors and telling them how I felt. Your going through a lot of discomfort and preclampsia at your stage. You will be ok and good luck on your delivery. Hugs
