Natural labor (due to water breaking) at 36w, 5d. No induction, no medical reason. The kid just wanted to come early. I was due April 20th, and she was born March 28th.

Dd1: 38 weeks -- Had been 5 cm and 80% effaced for week. Attempted to induce with AROM at 5.5 cm. Pit induced at 6.5 cm. My induction was scheduled for 38.4 wks as they wanted to monitor her on the outside. She was suspected to have ventriculomegaly and her lateral brain ventricles were increasing in size.

Dd2: 39 weeks -- induced at 6 cm. Midwife was concerned that I'd have her at home if I didn't stay at the hospital. Surely I would have. Not that it would have been a bad thing. It just would have been unplanned/unexpected.

Ds1: 35 weeks -- was planning a homebirth. We lost him and I went to the hospital to induce.

Ds2: 39.2 weeks -- induced with CO and cohoshes. DH arrived home on R&R leave and I was a nervous wreck and had really bad anxiety. I was constantly worried that something would happen at the last minute. That we'd lose another baby. I had been a stretchy 4-5 cm and 80% effaced for a week so we were confident things would go smoothly.

Colin was due 12.17.2009, they changed it to 12.11.09 after my 20 week ultrasound.. I was induced 12.16.2009 and Colin was born 12.17.2009.. It was funny, when I went into the hospital they referred to me as '40 weeks' and after he was born, due to his size they referred to me as 41 weeks with a LGA baby..
