A girl @ dh's work was induced. But I'm upset about it because the baby has trouble breathing and slow heat rate and he looks small but I don't know her but I saw a picture of baby and he looks small. But I think the reason for inducing is dumb, for Mom having high blood sugar, in fear of big baby. Well, baby is out and he'll be ok but still he's not big. The u/s was wrong. They could of gave her insulin for high blood sugar. I used to work with diabetes as a Nurse aide.

I would of refused but when I had Alissa and was her age, I did everything they told me. She did refuse an unnecessary c section and had baby vaginally. So good for her. I should of refused my unnecessary c section.

i'm really frustrated with the plethora of inductions now. I read it's between 60-80% of women are induced! It's crazy! Good for her refusing the csection though.

I hate that there are so many inductions now. I just don't understand how it got from 42 weeks to 40 weeks to now 38 weeks. It's just insane. I'm glad she refused the section and I hope the baby is breathing better sooner. Poor thing!

I'm trying to avoid an induction. The doctor even told me that he has to take precautionary measures so that he isn't held liable. It's nice to know that he is making decision about my unborn child based on his agenda of saving his own #####. Sorry- I'm a little disturbed by everything that's been happening recently in my pregnancy. Because of what the doctor says the midwife may not deliver me if he advises her not to. He even had the nerve to tell me that most of what natural medicine and midwifery does is not "proven" to be effective.
