My SIL was due 14 days ago with her first baby and for the last 4 months she has been refusing to get up out of the chair because her feet are swollen and they hurt. So she has not gotten any exercise. Now she's way overdue and for the last week has had no progress. No dilation. Not effaced. The baby has not dropped.

She still refused to walk around because it made the contractions start and they were too painful. So she laid down to get them to stop. She has gone to the hospital 4 times to get induced and nothing happened.

We all told her to get moving.

What would you have done if

1. You were her.

2. You were me.

While I was typing this up, I get a call that she's been back at the hospital since 6 AM this morning and they've been trying to induce her and they just broke her water. Doesn't that mean they have 24 hours to either get her dilated or give her a c-sec?
