i was induced this morning because of gdm and hydroamnios, in hopes of avoiding a c-section.
nothing went right from the moment i entered the building. i sat for 2 hours while they called in people who were here for voluntary inductions in, then for whatever reason she didnt want to come down, the doctor came in 3 times to tell me my baby was too big and wouldnt come on her own, and we needed to do a csection.
i had to give up on wanting to go without an epidural, but i dont regret that given the way things went, i had her naturally at 730 pm, 9 hours after they induced me, and only 10 minutes after the last time the doctor told me i needed to have a csection. oh and the 10 pund baby, was 8. shes beautiful, and im glad i didnt back down.

they are sometimes off by a lot, the question is, do you feel like your baby is that big? a friend of mine was bullied into a csection over the summer for that reason, had a 6 pound baby
