I went today for my 39 week visit. The doctor was very surprised to find that I was dialated to 3 almost 4 cm and could feel my water bag bulging. She told me to get dressed and would be into talk to me. She came back in and gave me the option to induce or wait it out. I asked her opinion and how she felt about it and she said I was a good candidate for induction and everything should go well.

I am checking into the hospital at 9 tonight. I will update later or have my DDB update.


I don't get it? Why the induction.

She (the doctor) is probably on call Thanksgiving Day and wants to reduce the chance of her turkey dinner being interrupted. Sounds like a perfectly good reason to me. (Insert sarcasm and eye roll here.)

There was another post similar to it too. It drives me nuts. Why would someone who is so close to going into to labour on their own want drugs put in their body? Why can't she just wait? What is the rush?

Why induce? She's already almost halfway there! In all likelyhood she would have gone into labor tonight or tomorrow night. Turkey Day birthday!

Some women walk around that way for weeks. her baby could still need another week or so. They believe labor is triggered by a hormone released from mature lungs. Sooooo, maybe we should wait until the baby's lungs are mature? Just a thought......

Those posts make me mad. I am going to have to stop reading them. If I were to dare say anything... I would get " Hey why can't you be happy for her, she is excited" kinda thing. Well why would I be happy that you are going to put your baby's health at risk?? Duhhhh!

This is why I'll probably have to back away from my DDC come January/February. Though, we do have quite a few NCB girls there, so maybe it won't be so bad.

I agree. Sad, I would definitely just wait it out no matter what the OB said unless me or my baby's health was truly at risk. But that's just me and you ladies, we don't want inductions or c-sections or interventions.

I really believe it is the doctor that is criminal here. No doctor should induce early for no reason besides convenience.

We can ride out the waves of stupid together, with our healthy non-induced mature-lunged babies!

I'm VERY tempted to delete my signature and just post a TON of links to studies about the benefits of natural labor and vaginal birth when we get to that stage, haha.

That stuff frustrates me too. I walked around with a bulging bag of water and 5cm for a week with dd, and I was 4cm for a week before that, and a very stretchy/loose 2-3cm for a few weeks before that. Nightly practice labor, I'm sure any one of those nights that month we could have gone in and they would have assumed I was in labor and given me pitocin when the contractions pooped out around 1-2am. But she wasn't born until 39w3d and she was still small at 6lb12oz. I know she wasn't ready before that and all the practice and discomfort for me was getting her ready.

There is NOTHING you can do or say to change someone's mind on the matter I've learned. It's best to just lead by example and let the chips fall where they may.

That's a great way to think of it. I am beginning to realize that no matter what you post, article, links etc... if someone has their mind made up that's it. There is no changing it and they will always come up with arguments that are favourable to their decision.

^^^ 9 months pregnant is not the time to try to inform women. Drives me bonkers.

Le sigh...

Because some people are just to darn impatient.

Yep exactly. I am one of those women who can walk around at 4/5cm dilated and NOT be in any kind of laboring pattern yet.

Yep, that is what I usually do. I labor for days and weeks even off and on and I dialte to a good 5cm before any real pattern is established. I can guarantee I'd be admitted and given the whole slew of interventions if I went in during this time.

I seriously have no tolerance or understanding of women who do this b/c they are uncomfortable or whatever blah blah blah and ESPECIALLY ones who have not even reached their due date. My gosh I can barely walk and am in tears 1/2 the time from the discomfort and will probably go overdue so I have no compassion for people who do this stuff at 38/39 weeks b/c they are uncomfortable and want to get it over with.

This is why I am glad my doctor doesn't consider induction until you are at least 2 weeks overdue. I would refuse at 39 weeks anyway. Why the rush? You know at that point no matter what it wont be much longer.
