DH will be deploying a couple of days before my due date, and will be gone for at least the baby's 1st yr, if not a little longer. We're debating inducing (if I don't go into labor early) as it's our 1st and he'd like to be home for birth. Soonest Dr. will induce w/ no issues is 1 wk early, leaving us 2-3 days as a fam before DH leaves. Just wondering if anyone ever induced w/ their first just due to timing, instead of being past due date/medical reason, and how it went? I don't want to do something that would hurt the baby, but at the same time, DH could be gone before he's born, and not back until R&R, sometime late this year.
Any experiences/info would be appreciated. Like I said, we may not even have to worry about it, but I would like to be prepared if it's a route we choose. Thanks!
