I'm pregnant with #1, and all I want in the world in a natural birth. However, she is not cooperating. I'm approaching 42 weeks and I'm still so locked up that the doc can't even sweep my membranes! I have not dilated or effaced AT ALL!! Nothing! Doctor is really really starting to push induction. I'm starting to feel like I should allow it. There are a lot of risks after 42 weeks, despite all the monitoring that medical science can do.

I at least want to avoid an epidural, and am hoping once they get me dilated, I might not even need pitocin... just a jump start opening up.

Does anyone have any advice for managing induction without epidural?
