I have GD so my OB wants to induce 1 week early to prevent LO from getting too big. I was 50% effaced and 1 cm yesterday, so we are set for an induction Tuesday 4/6 @ 5:30 a.m., unless he decides to arrive before then. I told DH we needed to get busy between now and then on everything we could do to make him arrive before then! He likes the idea of having an "appt" to have a baby, because it allows him to know exactly what he needs to do with work, etc.
Now... I was induced with DS @ 36 wks because of a high fever, and it SUCKED because I was stuck in the bed the whole time and chose not to get an epidural, so there's no walking around or anything like that to try and alleviate the pain.
Because of that episode I do not want to be induced again, but I'm getting an epidural this time so DH asked what it would matter? I hadn't thought about that....so why is it everyone is against being induced? Is it just because you want things to be as natural as possible? What if you're getting an epidural?
