Am I the only one?

Is it just me, or does it seem like 70% of the birth stories posted are induced?  I feel like I'm in the minority here, I hit 39 tomorrow and my obgyn says he doesn't induce unless it is medically necessary for baby or mother.  I feel like so many women are getting them as soon as they turn 39, and I'm starting to feel like I'm missing out.  Anyone else waiting for labor to start naturally, or is my obgyn and I just really 'old school'?

Re: Am I the only one?

  • I wanted to start labor naturally, but am being induced tomorrow at 39w5d due to bloodwork issues that could pose a problem after my due date. My compromise with my OB is that we do a slow induction so we have a lesser chance for a csection.

    That's wonderful, you must be so excited!  Best of luck tomorrow, hope everything goes smoothly and you get to meet your LO soon

  • my doctor only scheduled me for an induction at 41 weeks because LO was getting so big, but i had her 4 days before my EDD so there was no need (:

  • I wanted to not be induced but was due to medical reasons. I think most inductions are due to medical reasons but not everyone is saying that.
  • My Dr. won't even discuss induction until 2 weeks past EDD or if there's a medical need. I went into labor spontaneously with both of my girls. My DD#1 was born on her due date and #2 was born 4 days late.

  • I am being induced because of gestational diabetes. If I had no issues, I'm sure my doctor wouldn't induce me at 39 weeks...

  • I was sort of induced. My water broke and labor wasn't starting so I was put on pitocin. But before that (I was 39 1/2 weeks) induction wasn't even discussed. They said if I went to 41 weeks they would start more tests. I didn't ask so I don't know if they would have induced if I asked.

  • With DD I was induced at 41 weeks as he didn't find it safe for either her or I to go any longer.....since I ended in c section I have to have one this go around as well......VBAC wasn't an option at my hospital
  • I would have loved to avoid having an induction.  I was induced, at 40 weeks, due to having low amniotic fluid.
  • We were going to talk induction at my 41w appt.

  • I feel like a lot of the induced births were also due to health issues, but i could be wrong. With dd my water broke but i wasnt having contractions so i had to be induced. Im hoping to start labor on my own. But tbh if offered, i wont turn down induction!

     ^^^ This is me. My doc is worried that if we wait til due date or later, he will be too big and we will end up with a csection, so inducing at this point is a better option.

  • I posted a CP becasue I thought the same thing.. I WAS induced for medical reasons at 38 weeks... and ended up a c section when labor indicated my liver(?) was not responding well to labor... but i felt like many of the Nov B sories were inductions.....we should do  another clicky poll???

  • My doctor won't talk induction yet. She says "we will take it one week at a time". I see her again next Friday and if I'm dilated, she said she would strip my membrane. So you aren't the only one not being induced as of yet!

  • My doctor's office will let me go to 42 weeks at the absolute latest if everything continues to be fine and there are no health concerns for either myself or for my son. They have been monitoring me for pre-eclampsia due to excessive swelling in my feet and ankles, so if there are signs of that they will likely induce me. Right now I am 38 weeks & 3 days, and was dilated 2-3 cms at my 38 week appointment, so if I make it to my 39 week appointment without going into labor they are most likely going to strip my membranes to try to encourage things to move along a little faster. I have been begging my little one to hurry things up, so fingers crossed! I would love to have him and be home from the hospital by Thanksgiving!

  • I was induced due to polyhydramnios and the major risk of cord prolapse had my water broke when I wasn't in the hospital.  My midwife wouldn't even consider inducing with my first until after 40 weeks, and that was only a consideration because DH was deployed and would only be home for 2 weeks (39-41 weeks of gestation).

  • 40 weeks + 3 days and waiting. want to do it without induction but my doctor doesn't want to wait much past 41 weeks before we talk induction:(

  • I am 40 weeks, 4 days and have no health issues so going naturally. I have had cramping the past two nights - I hope I'm getting close.

    As long as I stay healthy and there is plenty of amniotic fluid, my MW is fine with waiting. We have a U/S scheduled for 41 weeks, 2 days (if he hasn't arrived) just to check it all out.

     Hang in there!

  • I was planning on being induced since babies tend to come two weeks late in my family...I waited and went into labor on my own at 40 weeks and one day!

  • My induction is scheduled for my due date but also for medical reasons. I am 41 and the rate of stillbirth goes up after 40w. With my first, I went to 42w and with my second, we hadn't even discussed induction and he was born at 40+1. I really hope I go into labor on my own but I had my first internal today and had no progress. :(

  • I'm waiting. 

    Today The OB said that since I have no problems, my weight is fine, my BP is perfect and baby is good there's no reason to induce. Although I'm scheduled for a NST next week if he hasnt made his appearance yet!

  • The Dr's at my practice won't induce until you are 10 days over your EDD unless medically required. Inductions have a higher rate of requiring a section so they feel its best to wait. I am glad its their policy here, but I'm with you.... I want this waiting game to be over so we can meet our little one!

  • My doctor said at my 41 week appt we'll talk about induction, that is this coming week.  I'm hopeful every day that the pains I'm feeling are labor but so far it never progresses :(

  • I was induced at 37 weeks due to pre-e.Otherwise, the practice I go to offers inductions starting at 39 weeks but my OB doesn't recommend them until 41 weeks.

  • Being induced Tuesday if LO isn't here by then. It's at 39 weeks, but doc is worried that baby will be too big and the sooner we're able to get him out, the less risk of having a c-section due to the baby being too big. However, unless he's just super stubborn, I have a feeling he might come before then because I am in a crap load of pain. I know that doesn't necessarily signify labor.... but here's hoping :-P
