Question for you ladies. My Dr at my last appt mentioned induction. She is supposed to check me out today at my appt and let me know if that is the course to take. I spoke with some of my friends this weekend, and they advised me that my hospital is known for being induction happy. Now, my baby is measuring large, but as of the 12th I had plenty of fluid in there. I am just worried about whether I should go through with an induction or not. My baby isn't actually due until friday. I was planning on having a natural birth and I have heard that with induction, it is usually best to get the epidural since contractions are so strong and close together. I am also worried about c-section because I have heard that you are at an increased risk with induction. I am not sure if the Dr is going to push me in that direction even though it might not be entirely necessary. Any thoughts on this? Anyone been in the same position? I want to trust the Dr, but I have heard so many stories about how they make it sound like the best option even though it might not be.
