Any other january mums still waiting for baby to arrive?

I'm 41 + 2 today and getting anxious as I'm booked for induction on Wednesday maybe even Monday Tuesday if a slot becomes available. I always imagined I'd go naturally and never considered I would have to be induced. Now I'm worried as my cervix is still thick that induction will be hard and lead to an emergency c section :( anyone else in the same boat? I can't see me suddenly going into labour before my I induction day especially with 2 occassions recently where the midwife couldn't perform a sweep cause my cervix isn't ready.

I'm currently in hospital being induced. I came in yesterday and was given a pessary at 7pm with nothing much happening except some cramping. Hoping my check at 7pm tonight gives us some good news as last check I was still only 1 cm dilated.

Keep ur head up.don't worry Bout what u cannot control. Sometimes the stress alone will prevent your body from,doing what it is supposta do. I went in for my induction on Wed night to find out my water was already broken and everything started rolling very fast. Has her the next morning. I think bc I was so excited and stressed it just made everything more tense. Good luck tho. Ur almost to the finish line.
