Had my app today I'm due tomorrow still 3cm dilated 75% effaced, so no real change since last time. So they scheduled a date to induce me for the 8th. I know i could still go into labor on my own but it depresses me that i might have to be induced i just want my baby to come this week by himself. she scheduled just in case i need it, she doesnt think i will but she said if she waits to schedule the induction it might be too far out and she really doesnt want me going past my 42 weeks mark. And if we wait to schedule they might not be able to fit me in. :( i hope this baby decides to make his appearance this week.

when I had an induction set up for my first my water broke less then 8 hours before I was supposed to go in... hopefully you have the same thing happen and you go before the date set... good luck!!!

Could be worse you could be 41 weeks and 0 effaced and 0 dilated like I was with my 2nd lol. Hang in there. He'll be here before you know it..

Don't give up hope. There's almost 2 weeks between now and your induction date. You can always try to reschedule the induction for a later date, to give yourself more time to go into labor naturally.

I learned with my first pregnancy that effacement and dilation really don't always have much bearing as to when your baby will be making their appearance. I stayed 1.5cm dilated, 70% effaced for about 3 weeks and they told me I was going to go to 42 weeks! But my water ended up breaking when I was 39 weeks and 1 day! Good luck mama! It could still happen the way you want it to :)
