It's not an indicator of whether or not you will give birth soon. If it were me, I wouldn't induce without some sort of medical need (ie baby or I were in some sort of distress).
Feeling contractiony this evening, we'll see if it pans out to anything.
ITA, unless you're past 42 weeks I don't see why being at 1 cm indicates a need for induction...
-- not my baby/body/business but want you to have a great birth experience and induction is tough!
I'm still feeling crampy. They did go away for about an hour when I propped myself up in a hands-knees position and snoozed a bit. I'm wondering if it has more to do with baby being in OP or something; at the same time, it's been consistent since about 10 am, so maybe it's warming up to something like early labor.
I'm trying not to obsess. But I will admit I took a few extra EPO capsules this evening, and ate some tabouleh (which is guaranteed to clean me out a little!). We'll see, I'm feeling hopeful, I would love to meet my baby tomorrow!
