I go in at 7am.
I know I'm getting the epidural.
I know my water will be broken by my doctor at 4CM.
I was at 1 and a half Monday, 40% effaced so I'm expecting this to take forever but I'm 43 weeks lol it's so time!

My doctor pushed for a induction at 39 weeks due to a big baby(he was 8 pounds according to a ultrasound at 36 weeks) I said no way...

Then at 40 weeks she pushed again I said no... I told her 43 weeks so she told me I'm basical getting a csection because the baby will be "way to big" for me to deliver 🙄🙄🙄 she was so good my whole pregnancy until it came to delivery.

Go poop in the morning before if you can. It'll make things feel more comfortable

Do not let your doctor break your water, especially not at 4cm. That's just asking for a cesarean.

My body stalled at 4cm exactly all 4 of my other pregnancies but once my water was broken I shot up to 10 and delivered 2-3 hours later... I we tried waiting it out my last pregnancy and I was stuck at 4cm for 28 hours... Nothing my body doesn't budge lol.

😯. My water broke first. I wasn't dialated anymore then 1 cm and that was only because I lost my plug. I didn't get a c-section.

Just pointing out, that you are wrong and you shouldn't try to scare someone with false info.

I would hold off on breaking your water until around 7 cm. I was induced at 41 weeks and immediately went into massive contractions and delivered 12 hours later.

Good luck! My induction was the most traumatic experience of my life because my body wasn't ready (39 weeks)

I hope it goes fast for you and baby ❤️
