  • i think the women that just do it to do it are either just so ready for the baby to here that they can't wait anymore or they like things to come on their terms.

  • I myself was scheduled to be induced because I had gained a lot of weight, it was summer, and my doctor didn't want me to get any bigger or more uncomfortable. I didn't ask to be induced, she recommended it, and I trusted her, so I agreed to it. As it turned out, I had to be induced early because my water broke, and I wasn't having contractions or any other signs of labor.
