I have an appt. on Monday. I'll be 41 weeks. My midwife wants to do a stress test and check fluid levels, and then set an induction date for later that week. I'll be somewhere around 11 days overdue. We were planning for a Bradley birth and I want to avoid Pitocin at all costs! I wanted to labor at home, and not be stuck in a bed with an IV in my arm... I was thinking of asking on Monday to have my membranes stripped, as a last resort before induction, in hopes that I can go into labor on my own.
Anyone have this experience? What would you do?
