My friend is being induced today- and she has Strep throat... she can't take the meds without having the baby (so they're saying :roll: navy docs.. anyways)

So yes- you can be induced with a cold/sinus infection.

I'm pretty sure they will. Though, if you want to wait a bit longer and there's not a specific reason other than it being your due date (I think), you could always ask to reschedule a few days later.

In that case, I personally would wait it out a few days. I wouldn't want to be sick during labor. It takes out all of the energy you have as it is. Your doctor can't force an induction, especially if there is no medical emergency.

Yeah, just don't let him push you around because I know some doctors just get anxious. This is about YOU and your birth experience.



I was induced with my first so I'm not completely against it. I was 9 days past my EDD, but my midwife wanted to take the time and see if it would happen naturally.

I went 9 days past with my 1st too and was induced. My 2nd I was induced 3 days before the EDD because we needed to plan a little in order to have someone here to take care of our older child and they were coming from out of state. I'm glad I was induced a little early with him cause he was already over 8 lbs. If it's a 1st child my doctor won't induce unless you're a week late and she didn't want to let me go even 9 days past but she was at a conference when i would have been a week past.

If you arent being induced for a medically necessary reason i would personally wait. I know here if a mother has even the slightest temperature during labor they will not allow you to hold your baby right away or anything. I went a week OD and it wasnt that bad, and i would personally want to feel in tip top condition before bringing a baby home!
