I know! I dont like medicine in the best of times. I haven't even taken a Tylenol this pregnancy. I really dont want to be induced. Got checked today and I am 2 cm dilated for the third week in a row. Due tomorrow.
I will be 40 weeks friday the 26 thats my due date. Im not dilating at all yet either. Just look at it this way just be happy that you dont have any problems with the pregnancy and when the babys ready he/she will come, being induced is a common thing the drs know what there doing so you shouldn't have to worry.
I'm due in 4 days. 2cm dilated %50 effaced. constantly feels like I have to have a bowel movement. but I don't. having contractions but they aren't regular but hurt pretty bad. hoping I go soon or will be setting an iduction date on wednesday :(
Today is Dec 27. I am 40+2. I haven't dilated at all either. Lots of Braxton hicks some days but nothing serious. Go back to doc on Monday. Wondering if he will schedule me for induction. Really want her to come on her own but whatever happens is out of my control at this point. Good luck ladies
My issue with being induced is mainly just the fact that they are putting chemicals into my body which isn't natural. It can also make contractions more intense (which can lead people to need an epidural which in turn can increase risk of c section or tearing). I stated above, I haven't even taken a Tylenol this pregnancy, I don't like taking man made medications. I am set to be induced friday because as of right now baby is six days late but my plan is to have them break my water instead of going straight to medicine and see if that gets things started.
Thats exactly what happened to me. My dr scheduled me for induction, and my contractions were so intense. I had to get epidural. That time I thought it was a blessing but now I think it was a biggest mistake I made
