You can ask them to take you off the pitocin once your labor starts going and to see if you body will continue labor on its own if it doesnt they can simply put you back on.

And i'm just so confused, i feel like thier just telling me anything to talk me into getting it.
They'll tell me she's fine and still talk about inducing i'll question it and ask if she's fine why? why can i not carry til 40?
And they seem to find some other answer.
I swear i find out something new everytime.

the drs may be trying to convay to you that the baby is ''fine'' now but the potential for medical problems to arise as time goes on is a very real possibilty......either they arent explaining things correctly or you arent understanding them correctly which means you need 2 ask more questions or word them differently......

My induction was horrible. They insisted on it ONE day after my due date which was absurd, our family is known for overcooking our fetuses by WEEKS, and all her fluids were FINE. But I was barely 18 and didn't know I could tell them to f**k off. It took three days of inducing with two different types of things, and then the baby finally went into distress after they broke my water >.< I was in active labor for 12 hours before she went into distress a third time and they took me in for a csection.



Tell your family THEY are being selfish, that the doctors gave YOU the option for what day would work best for you and it is YOUR choice what your baby's birth day will be and the doctors support the day you chose and maybe even tell them to stfu while you are at it :) Your mother DEFINITELY overstepped the boundaries by trying to get the date changed herself. Mine would lose visitation privileges while I was in the hospital if she did that crap.

The pineapple thing is a myth, I eat tons of fresh pineapple, I'm addicted to it! lol But sex will do the trick :)

Honestly, i believe thier all myths.
I've been walking like crazy, but still sitting at 3 CM for about 3-4 weeks now.
Same with sex. i believe you can only go when your ready, but it'll still be fun to try things.
Also, i don't have any stairs.
But, this morning i woke up with really bad cramps on my side, that i've never felt before, labor pains maybe?

But its not even problems they are saying is possible.
I'll come in and they will be like well "baby grew, so were not looking at IUGR anymore. she's healthy only a tad bit small but it could be her genetics. now we still want to induce you before.. blah blah
So i'll ask if she's healthy, doing everything you want to see why?
"Well because..."
and it's a new reason every time.

Also, My mothers telling me i'm not going to be able to shower while staying in the hospital?
Why wouldn't i be able to?
She also tried talking me out of packing a hospital bag, saying i wouldn't be there but a day, cause she wasn't in for a full day.
My dad said she was being stupid about that part, but he said the no showering part is true.

Umm you will be there more then a day pack a bag ready for a few days even and inless you just have the most stupid hospital ever you CAN take a shower. I just had my daughter 18 months ago soo yeah I was able to shower and I had a bath with jets in it at my hospital and they incouraged me to get in it.

I showered during both of my hospital stays. Best shower ever, in fact.
