Spell check.



Secondly, my OB, and most I know let you go two weeks overdue before they insist on intervention, unless of course there is risk to you or the baby for waiting. I've heard, and seen, that tons and tons of walking. like miles if you have to, squats, and sex really help.

Most doctors won't let you go past two weeks, or don't want you to anyways. Ultimately it's up to you. You don't need to be induced just because you were due yesterday. Your due date can be off by two weeks and if you feel more comfortable waiting then that is your choice.

2 weeks is the safest and most doc induce by 2 weeks. I was induced with both of my girls and it really isn't that bad. Well at least for me it wasn't. I had a epi with my first and my second the epi was messed up so I didn't get an epi with my youngest. I was in labor for 16 1/2 hrs with my oldest And 10 1/2 hrs with my youngest. I wanted to go into labor in my own as well with my youngest but I couldn't financially afford to wait an extra week. So I was induced at 41 weeks 0days. My 40th week I tried everything to get my self to go into labor prior to my induction date and nothing happened. I walked, had lots of sex, did stairs, and so much more NOTHING happened.

I went naturally on my own the day of my due date with my 1st DS. I walked for about 2.5 hrs came home watched a movie and the contractions started. I was in labor 4 hrs 39 mins. My 2nd I was induced 5 days before my due date because baby measured big. He was born at 8 lbs 4 oz. I was in labor 4 hrs 19 mins. Both were natural deliveries. The contractions were a lot more intense when I was induced. But if you're ok with medication for pain control I think you'd be fine.

Thanks u ladys I rilly needed this info and ya my spelling is way off I'm on my cell phone and it spells crazy as it is and hard to go bck n re read and fix it but I think if I dnt go by next week I will just go ahead I want my son to be born in a safe time frame.. also I will start walking a lot more and a lot longer and I forget how it felt to be induced with my daughter witch was four years ago and I was out of it, iv heard contractions are so much harder being induced... I'm going to try and walk a lot n maybe sex but sex isn't n e thing I'm in to at this point lol but if nothing works I'm going to go ahead and get the show on the road bc they also said my son is measuring bigger than what he should withc could be off I know But that makes me fill a little better to be induced... thanks agien and anyone else want to shair so info I'd love to hear it
