Did you end up with an induction in the end, either hospital or a mw induction? Were your mws forced to risk you out because you were post dates? My good friend is 42 weeks today. She hasn't had any complications or anything, but I'm worried about her cnms being forced to turn her care over to a dr because she's 'so far past dates'. Her mw suggested taking castor oil tomorrow if no baby by then. She's been taking L6W and she's dilated to 4 (cervical checks are meaningless I know, but she was having some warm up contrax, it shows that those warm ups did some hard work!) If no baby by Monday, she has to go to the hospital for a biophysical profile. She's seeing cnms at a freestanding bc, she doesn't seem too happy about going to the hospital. That worries me because of all the times docs say "oh it looks like your fluid is too low, let's do a c-section now". Her mom is coming into town tomorrow, so hopefully if she's holding on to anything she'll let it go when her mom is here to look after her. Any words of encouragement that were reassuring to you in those last few days? Please reassure me, so I can reassure her!
