having to be induced :-(
What is the reason for the induction? If it's just for lateness then I would hesitate to induce. If you need to feel that Baby is doing well then go in for a bio-physical profile.
My first was born at 43 weeks and my second at 42+2. Sometimes babies take their sweet time coming, but it's definitely worth the wait. One of the best things about a late baby is they aren't so fragile, it makes them much easier to handle.
Read up on ALL your options for induction (cervidil, Foley bulb, AROM) and advocate for yourself! Pitocin is not fun, so if you can avoid it, you should try.
And think positively! I've heard of more than one woman lately going into labour after having a heartfelt chat with their fetus. Let your baby know how important it is that they come today, and that you are ready!
