Quoting AaliyahVal'sMommy:" 'They suspected IUGR at first, then i got another ultrasound and it sounded like they werent looking ... [snip!] ... I hear she's perfect, they still wanna induce, i question it because i was just told she was healthy and its another excuse."

Hmmm....that is odd. But I know in my case, my first daughter was gaining weight too. But she was still not gaining enough and they definitely knew it was IUGR after multiple ultrasounds showed her measurements were way below what they should have been and bc I was losing amniotic fluid like nobody's business. What I would do is call your dr office and get a final opinion on the status of the baby based on the last ultrasound you had. If they act like IUGR isn't a problem anymore, I would say you are probably safe keeping it at Tuesday. I would think if the baby was in ultimate danger, they would have told you and not given you a choice on the induction date. At least they did with my first daughter. I wasn't given a choice. I went for my ultrasound that morning and by mid afternoon, they had already called saying they had to take the baby immediately because she would be stillborn if they didn't. It's really a scary line to walk with IUGR bc my two experineces like I said before....one was taken by force before her scheduled date and had all kinds of problems. But they knew had she stayed in, she would have died in utero. The other stayed in four days past when my original date was scheduled and she turned out completely fine.



Bottom line: Call the office and ask to speak to someone and get their professional advice on the situation. If it looks like they are worried about leaving her in, ask to be induced sooner. If not, stay with the date and hope for the best. Good luck. *Hugs* I'm sure your baby will be just fine.

I go to different doctors for my appointments, the ultrasounds are done at the hospital i'm delivering at.
As well, as i have different docs read the ultrasounds, and then i guess they just all have different opinions? cause they each tell me something new every time.
I think its okay to wait until tuesday since i was given the option.
The doctor told me it would be safe to wait, just that she could do it as early as friday(today) or as late as tuesday.

Oh sorry. I guess I didn't understand that to begin with. But it looks like you have your answer. Good luck in your delivery on Tuesday and hope everything is fine.

Thank you.
Yes, all our hospitals are like that now, only certain ones deliver and they all have different doctors you go too.
Hopefully i go in on my own before then though lol.
(Even though i feel like it won't happen :( )

Every experiance is differant,111 Mine was sooo easy and I didnt wanna be induced either but once I was in there and everything it went so good! And I have two older sisters and both of them have been induced twice and both times for them went really well too!

I'll be praying it all goes well for you! :)

I just wanted to add my own wonderful induction story on here.



First of all I wanted to point out that if the Drs are letting you set the induction date then obviously it is not an emergency so your family needs to really get off your case.



The fact that you are already 3 cm is very helpful!



I was 5 cm when we decided on an induction. They broke my water at 2:10 pm and contractions started instantly. I went to 6 1/2 cm. They started a tiny bit of pitocin partly to make sure things kept moving and partly.because I had very low platelets.



Contractions were easily managed by deep breaths. I felt no pain at all!!



It didnt take very long to feel pushy. So I told the nurse and she said there was no way I was ready yet...



So I waited through a few more contractions with the extreme pressure and decided I was NOT going to wait until they decided they should check me (during my first labor with my son I had to.wait about 30 minutes to push. It was the hardest thing and the pressure was ridiculous).



So I very calmly said "Look lady, I am pushing this baby out with or without you and that midwife!"



She checked and sure enough I was ready to go and baby was right there.



Three pushes and my healthy beautiful tiny girl was here.



She was born at 2:46 pm, just 36 minutes of perfect painless labor!!



Good luck to you. Just remember, if you made the decision then it must be the right one. Maybe you will go into labor on your own but if not im sure everything will be perfect!!

Yes i keep telling them that she gave me an option so it's safe, even though i'm starting to feel a little bad, i guess i've been letting the things they tell me just start to sink in and it's scaring me a bit so i'm kind of back and forth on if i made the right decision now.
Does it hurt when they break your water?

Didnt really hurt when they broke it. It was pretty uncomfortable though. And they kind of had me upside down so it was so weird lol. But it wasnt painful.



I had an early induction. It was a tough decision to make. My husband and I had a long discussion and finally weighed our options and decided induction was best for the safety of me and our baby. It definately was the right decision. If my water had broken at home I most likely would have delivered in the car on the way to the hospital

Thats something i had been worried about too, the hospital is about 30 min away from my house, and i've been wondering my whole pregnancy what if i have her in the car on the way there?

I wasnt worried at all with my first. But I was at the hospital less than am hour before he was delivered. He would have been born about 25 minutes after arriving if I hadnt had to wait for my.midwife.



That is why we were so worried about my second. I feel so lucky that things went the way they did. I think as long as you are feeling baby kick and move you are fine to keep her in for a few extra days. Sounds more to.me that your family is just super eager to meet her lol. Now that is selfish!

That, and the fact i feel the doctors are trying to scare me into doing it also, Why else would she tell my mom and my boyfriend that she's most likely gonna be a still born for being a little small?
If it were really that bad, why was i allowed to continue the day before my due date?
I can understand the eagerness of wanting to see her and meet her, i feel that way too, and having her early can be tempting because of that, but i still feel it's best for her to continue her developments, she can come when she's ready too.

Babies are supposed to bake for 40 weeks. Yes sometimes things happen bit I dont think a few extra days are gonna hurt her any!!
