Hope you all are well! I'm due in less than 2 weeks with my second son, and had my Dr appt today. Something that has been discussed with me is an option to schedule an induction with this baby, assuming next week my cervix is softened and I've shown signs of progress.
The benefits of scheduling the induction for #2 is more of a lifestyle decision (to ensure my son is being taken care of, make sure my husband isn't at work- which is far away-etc etc.) It's an elective induction and would be more of for ease-of-mind for family planning, as opposed to medically required.
Some history on me: My labor & delivery with my first son was VERY fast- so that plays into my fears about delivering a baby in a car! I also tested positive for Strep B this time around, so this would give me time to make sure I'm getting the antibiotics before the baby comes. Otherwise, I've had a very normal pregnancy- and besides being super uncomfortable, especially chasing a toddler, I'm ok.
I just wanted to hear from anyone who has been offered this elective induction for the 2nd time around... what are you thinking? Or if anyone has chosen this (or not chosen this route), are you content with your direction?
Thanks for listening
