  • no two pregnancies are exactly alike. your other kids may have been fine at 36 weeks but that doesn't mean this one will. for low fluids, drinking a lot of water or even IV fluids if needed would be better than induction. im not trying to be rude, just honest. my oldest was induced at 38.6 weeks and was born with a nasal problem. she spent a week in the nicu. my blood pressure was super duper high though, so atleast i had a true medical reason. both of our lives were at stake. well if you do end up being induced early, good luck to you both and congrats.

  • As long as your doing it for your baby and not you. If it were me, I would ask to stay at the hospital if he is worried about you having the baby on the floor. You can be monitored, and if you do go into labor, your already there. Thats just me.

  • O and I was 2 cm at 37 weeks, and I was induced at 43... You never know

    Answer by BabyBugsmama at 4:26 PM on Apr. 25, 2011

  • I've had both of my girls early. 1st one at 36 wks. Weighed 5 lbs 2oz and got to go home the next day. My 2nd was born at 37wks and weighed 7lbs 11oz and went home the next day as well. I was never induced, my body just knew it was time. Both of my girls are perfectly healthy.
    I am happy for you but don't forget, complications can happen. And then again, I'm not saying to think the worst. Ok, I'll shut my mouth now :) Good luck and hope your baby comes when she is ready!
