Why are you being induced so early?

I've been getting a hell of a lot of pain, like to the point I can't walk. Also it's for mental health reasons.

I know the pains expected and that :)
But because of my anxiety I am not used to not being in control, and the fact I have nothing set in place is making my anxiety worse. So they've agreed to let me have that date so I feel like I have that little bit more control and so that I can put my medication back up to it's original dosage as soon as possible.

Nah, I've never been induced that early. I did go into labor on my own at 38 weeks though. Good luck with everything.

So you'll be 39 weeks when you're induced? I was at that when I got induced with my oldest. Granted not everyone is the same but mine went perfectly and only 9 hours.
