So the rational part of me says that's too soon to resort to such a measure, but the crazy, done-being-pregnant, feeling-like-a-grumpy-hippo part says bring it on. I just hope I can stay sane a few more days.
Here's hoping you go before you feel the need to resort to an induction.

I think some OB do it different but thats what mine do ( as of today)
Thanks for the info. I have an appt first thing tomorrow, so I can find out for sure what the procedure would be. I don't think I would really do it at only 41 weeks, I just have moments of weakness when it starts sounding like a good idea!

Thank you. I'm feeling much more positive tonight. I've just been on quite an emotional rollercoaster--one day I feel great and know things will happen in due time, and the next I have a hard time with self-doubt and feeling so unlike my usual, active self.

I'm so thankful to have this community to share experiences with--it really helps!
