My SIL was one that was checked at 36 weeks, and her cervix was soft, and closed, perfect for a 36 weeker in my opinion, but it convinced her that she was never going to go into labor on her own, so she was induced at 38 weeks.[/b]
Oh that frustrates me to no end! There are so many girls in my blog ring who had their babies induced early and ended up with c-sections or really horrific birth stories. Why can't people leave well enough alone?
