Is this your first? Because I was induced with my daughter & she was my first & it made me labor 3 days (Naturally) because I wouldn't dilate even with the pitocin. I don't know your story but I would wait a little while longer before you choose induction. Unless health complications arise.

First pregnancies last an average of 41.3 weeks. Wait it out. Drugs go straight to the baby too and induction puts more stress on both of you. I have 3. Good luck and don't rush things! Bigger babies that are late have more time for their brains to grow and are usually better sleepers and eaters :) don't let the doctor push his schedule on you!!

I just had my first baby nov 10. I was induced at 41wks an it went great. She was very healthy and labor was less then 24hrs. My best friend was induced as well and she had less then 24hrs if labor. I've heard it can be hard but I had a great experience. Our could mabey see if they would strip your membranes and see if that helps.

Everyone is different.. I was 17 with my first and was induced at 39 weeks due to complications.. I was in labor a little over 7 hours and everything went smoothly. Good luck!

It is normal to be nervous!  It is very exciting!  My midwife broke my water at 41 weeks, and it was pain free (the water breaking, not labor), labor only lasted 7.5 hours.  So, I recommend asking for them to break your water, since it is drug-free.

I was induced due to high bp and it took 5 days. I was miserable.

 WOOHOO!!! Congrats!

I was 17 with my first and he went overdue over 2 weeks, so don't stress too much. You'll be okay. Do you have your (and baby's) bags packed yet (and in the car)?

Yes I was too. I'll probably never do it again
