Your due date can be off by two weeks. Your babe will come when he/she is ready. Why rush an induction?

Will keep you in my thoughts. I went 4 days overdue with my last. I was less than 24 hours away from my scheduled induction when my water broke at 3 am.

This is the face I made when I read the title of this topic :(. Sorry OP. I'm not overdue but I'm soooo ready for this little to make his grand entrance so I understand. The pains are ridiculous at this point. So uncomfortable.

Why not try to go natural?

This :!:
I was "2 weeks over due"
and told I had to have an induction cause I was going to have a huge baby :roll:




Turns out my daughter was only 6lbs and the stress of the induction caused fetal stress and an emergency c-section.

People are so quick to want an induction because they're "over due". That could be a complete lie!
I'm only being induced in 5 weeks because I need surgery after. Same reason I was with DD (different surgery though). I was lucky enough to have a very, very good experience when I was induced with DD (had her within 3 hours and wasn't even dilated when I was induced!). I'm hoping it is the same this time around.




OP, you should really wait until your body is ready. So should your doctor.
