So I had my 37/38 week check up today. 1 CM dilated and thats about all the dr could figure out because she could barely reach my cervix. I asked her how far past my due date they would let me go and she said they wont. If she isnt here by 40 weeks they will induce. I told her that I am going to be very selective with my induction options and will only except 1 or 2. She said they use Cytotec. When I was leaving the office I googled it and wouldnt you know, its not at all safe for pregnancy or induction and can cause uterine ruptures and birth defects. Its also considered category X.
Why on hell would you administer this?????
A friend of mine was given this and told me that it was incredibly painful and didnt help her dilate so she ended up with a c-section because the baby went into distress. Not only that, it caused her to hallucinate really bad. Her sister had the same experience!
Obviously not going that route so do I have the right to tell the dr that I want to go past 40 weeks or is there a chance they will drop me as a patient?
