I was watching A Baby Story that my mom turned on when she was here the other day (and promptly reminded why I don't usually watch that show). It started out with the woman at her 39-week appt and her doctor says "We're going to go ahead and schedule an induction this week since you're not dilated yet" WTH?? That just seems completely backwards to me. So let's schedule a woman for an induction, before her due date, because she isn't dilated yet...

Thankfully, she went into labor on her own beforehand. Stupid doctors...

that sounds about right. Don't people know that dilation means nothing? Heck some woman walk around at a 4 for a few weeks before going into labor!

oh man, that show SUCKS. I was a nanny for a female OB who was on that show. I didn't watch it too often but whenever I did when I was pregnant I hated it. UGH.
