You could not PAY me to electively induce!!! Besides, the makers of Pitocin specifically say on the insert of their product that doctors are NOT supposed to use Pitocin for elective inductions! But, doctors do it everyday! : *(

I was also given the option to be induced today. I opted out because she simply isn't ready and I'm not going to rush her if there's no medical reason to.

I was induced due to preeclampsia at 39 weeks. It was horrible. Induced tuesday evening, no progress til Thursday morning. Thursday afternoon I stalled at a 6cm and babys heart rate started dropping so it ended with a c section after almost 48 hours. I definitely would not CHOOSE to be induced.

I can't recommend induction unless you have a medical reason to do so--I did have one and still it was a disaster. :(   I ended up getting a c-section.

Unfortunately you had pre-eclampsia :( but my mother who is an an OB nurse said this is the most likely outcome of an induction placed on a woman whos cervix is just not ready.. And she would most likely end in a c-section. If I was to have done an induction, I too would probably end in a ceserean.

I had NO idea about this!! Not that a doctor would regularly inform their patients I'm sure. But wow... WTH?

I am actually inducing tomorrow, but I will be 40+3 and have had a struggle with BP (not consistent but a few times) and had a funly blood test at 15 weeks so my baby is being monitored a little more closely. I had the Dr check my Bishop score today because if induction wasn't favorable, I wasn't going to do it. But my Bishop score was high enough to be favorable and I am going to start my induction with breaking my water, not pitocin. 
If I were in your case, not "over due", not effaced or dilted at all, I would not induce.

When are you due? I feel the same way for if there is no medical reason, why bother? My only fear is, what if I regret not doing it in time before there is a medical emergency I don't know about :(
