no and being induced increases your risk of csection. Its the end and everyone hates it but your almost done. Try some tea and a bath.

at 37 weeks, your bean's not done cooking yet. I wouldn't push for an induction when he's clearly not ready to come out yet.

Induction is best saved for medical emergencies. Hopefully your doctor will turn you down.

37 weeks isn't really far enough along to consider it. Have you tried a warm shower? Or some stretches to ease your muscles?

I opted for induction with my first pregnancy because of back pain/hip pain - It was a mistake :-/ I would definitely try and ride out the pain and let your baby come when he/she wants. Good luck!

 most docs won't induce until 39 weeks, but it just increases your chances of a c-section especially if you aren't dialating on your own.

Many people aren't dilating yet at 37 weeks. Some women, like me, don't dilate at all until they are in labour. Plus, starting an induction so early with no dilation would most likely end with a section. If I were you I'd try some stretches (look up child's pose, it's my favourite for back pain), a warm bath, and a hot, caffine free drink before bed and try and wait until your baby is ready. The last few weeks of cooking make a big difference. Good luck!

Have you seen a chiropractor? That would be much better than induction and no, they won't induce you before 39 weeks without a medical reason.
