I just had someone in my DDC post that they will be induced a couple of weeks early because they can't feel themselves going into labor. She said she doesn't feel labor at all until the doctor breaks her water. With her 2nd daughter she got to the hospital at 8cm and hadn't felt anything yet. So, her doctor suggested she be induced this time (mind you she is not even in her 2nd tri yet). She is fine with it because both of her daughters were born at 37 weeks so she doesn't think it's a big deal to be induced before her due date.
At least someone else in the DDC suggested that she should just have a home waterbirth if her labor is that easy.

I'm confused by that too. It seems to me she won't even make it that far anyway, so why not just do it at home?

When a baby decides to be born at 37 weeks, it is often ready and there ar less complications than a baby born by induction at the same time. Thse hormones that help mature the lungs will be extra important for that baby, and he/she won't be getting them ith an induction.

I've heard of people who have painless labor but I don't see any reason for induction... that's just messed up. How did she know she was in labor before, when she went to the hospital at 8 cm? Does she at least feel the pressure and realize she's having a baby or is she worried she won't feel anything and end up giving birth in the toilet or something?

I didnt have pain with my second labour till I got to 7 cm, I wasnt eve sure I was in labour till I got to 7 cm when the pains started. All I had was contractions like Braxton Hicks and I thought that is all it was, but then my doula made me time them and she said I was in labour and she came over right away LOL, now I would love to have all of my labours that way!!!!!

Geez, you would think she wouldnt' want to test her luck! If my labors were that painless, I would be all over a home birth. Does she realize how painful an induction can be, I've heard those contractions are strong and fast!
