What happened at the doctors today:) leilani&cynthiasmommy Due November 17; 18 kids; Arizona 123 posts

Went to my doctors app I'm 24 weeks and measuring at 24weeks. The doctor gave me paper work for the hospital and scheduled me to be induced at 39 weeks. Tomorrow I'm going to do my glucose test. Everything looks great so far :) I have gained 15 pounds so far tho:(

Is there any reason they're scheduling an induction already? Is everything okay?

Everything is fine. I've had problems here and there but since I quit my job it's been better. I was having black outs and very low blood pressure but its good now. I do have contractions already which is kinda early. But my doctor always induces his patients at 39 weeks. And if a girl wants to wait then he will let them wait but he won't let then go over 40 weeks.

that is a ludicrous way to go about birthing, hes inducing babies and risking health for no reason, DR should lose his license.

Contractions at 24 weeks are normal as long as they aren't making cervical changes...especially since you've already had 2 kids. Due dates are just estimates, it can be up to 2 weeks off. Your doctor doesn't sound like a very good one.

I love my doctor lol. He is very good that's why I go back to him every pregnancy. Oh I've been having contractions since 19 weeks that why he was a little worried.

I've always had natural births except for my last. My water broke but my labor did not start on its own so I was given pit. I also had my daughter at 34 weeks and she was 5 lbs and no NICU stay.

I think being induced isn't as bad as people think. They say a mother knows best well I know when my child is ready to come.

I was induced with my first, but I was 41 weeks, so even if my EDD was off, I would have been no less than 39 weeks.



Your dr inducing for NO REASON at 39 weeks, the baby could only be 37 weeks with undeveloped lungs. Pregnancy is 40 weeks, why induce at 39? Why not let the baby come when the baby and body are ready?

Lol, how would you know? I'm pretty sure baby is ready to come when labour starts... On its own.

My body has never went into labor by itself. I've always had to be induced. Full term is 40 weeks so what's wrong with being induced at 39? It's not like I'm being induced at 36. It's a week from my due date. I love my doctor he's great. My doctor is giving me an ultrasound at 37 weeks to make sure the baby's lungs are developed and everything and from my ultrasound at 21 weeks everything looked perfect I have faith everything will be fine
