It's fairly common for a first baby to be a little late. I was induced with my first baby 11 days after my due date. Typically, doctors won't let you go past 42 weeks because after that point there are significant risks to your baby. I was induced with pitocin, had a three hour labor and almost didn't get any anesthesia before my daughter was born. My contractions weren't outrageously strong or painful. In fact, I made it all but about 10 minutes without pain medication. I got a spinal block shot and as soon as it kicked in I started pushing. I didn't cry and wasn't overly uncomfortable. With my next delivery I had an epidural which didn't work very well and I cried like a baby after they broke my water because the contractions were so painful.Don't be afraid of being induced. Since you have a narrow pelvis getting your baby out sooner will make things much easier for you. I know how impatient you are, I was in the same boat my first time around. I tried all the natural ways to induce labor but the thing is, they won't work unless your baby and body are ready. And if they aren't, there's nothing wrong with medical intervention!
