We have been dilated to 3cm and 80% effaced for a lil over a week now and are scheduled to go back in on Wednesday to see where we are at. We have had lots of false labor and this week it is getting stronger with a lot more cramping that is quite painful. Dr. wants to induce or augment labor on Thursday 08/12, our due date, if he is not here yet. What will that entail if we are already dilated and effaced on our own just slowed down? I have heard some scary stories about inductions but the back stories are that they have no labor progress on their own.
