Hello! I'm new here, but I was due the fifteenth, I am now three days late and they're talking about induction and I really can't make up my mind on if I should let them or not. I had my membranes swept on Tuesday and I had fantastic contractions, but not consistent enough to go in, tried to take a nap and bam! Nothing. I've been having CX off and on for about three months and they've had to stop labor twice, but for the most part they've been pretty sporadic and lazy.
My ob isn't pressuring me to induce but does want to schedule an induction just in case, but needs to know how long I want to wait before doing so. I'm pretty sure she will let me go the whole 42 as long as baby is OK. I'm doing an most right now, so hopefully quick feedback is my friend!
As a side note, this is baby number six and she is my last, I have either been induced or had an augmented labor with all my others and kinda just wanted this to last as long as possible, within safety, before I give up pregnancy forever, which is why this is so hard for me. I'm in a lot of pain constantly because of severe sciatica agitated by pregnancy, but it's manageable with some mild pain meds and I love being pregnant despite this!
