Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

Being induced at 39 weeks

0 answers
I am 39 weeks and 2 days, I am due on October 31, my next doctors appointment is Tuesday, October 28. My cervix is 65% effaced and I am only two centimeters dilated. At my last appointment my doctor stripped my membranes to see if it would help me dilate. My water has not broke and I have not had any serious pre labor pains or contractions (just light cramps in my lower abdomen and back pain) This is my first baby. Honestly I want him here I don't mean to sound selfish but I am very excited and also very miserable. Will my doctor induce me or make me wait a little longer? If they do decide to induce me will they make me wait until my due date? Will they let me choose when to be induced? Sorry I know the questions seem kinda silly I am just kind of nervous with this being my first baby.
