  • Your dr will do some test to check on the baby.. NST and AFI if you go past your due date to see if it is neccessary to induce, but they usually do not induce until atleast a week late sometimes two. Your dr will probably strip your membranes at your next apt. if you have a pelvic to help it along. But keep walking, and moving.

  • Watch in 3 years they are going to say that inducing can cause problems. HOnestly I got induced with my son and he gets sick alot more then my daughter who I let come on her own. I would never get induced again JUST let your baby come on his own.

  • Try to make yourself comfortable instead. Baby will come when he/she is ready. It will happen soon enough. I know it sounds crazy, but try to "enjoy" the last few days or weeks of pregnancy. Take warm baths, read a book, take naps... you wont get many very soon!
