Hope it goes well. Elective inductions always give me a huge lump in my throat, though. Mine certainly didn't go well. 2 days of hell followed by an emergency c-section. Pretty common story, same thing happened to a friend, and to my sister (although hers was medically indicated). I certainly hope you have better luck. I wouldn't wish my induction experience on my worst enemy.

*hug* I wish you the very, very best! HERE is info on the various method of induction for your consideration, to help you have a safer experience. It is important that you know your options and know the risks and benefits of each drug and each procedure he is offering, so you make the safest choices possible. You can turn down any drug or procedure that you have read about and do not feel is safe! Are you and baby still doing okay? Or is he still saying that baby is rooming out of as the only reason to induce?

Why do you want to be induced?
Will you choose your route based on health & or safety
convenience?

Yeah I'm curious why you're getting induced or why your doctor is considering it right now. Is there a medical reason?
