Re: 8 days overdue. If given the choice would you be induced?

generally speaking, i am against inductions. although there are many a success story, i find that more often than not they wind up being emergency c-sections. unless all looked well and the little one just needed a slight "nudge", i would attempt to go natural or c-section if medically necessary.

Re: 8 days overdue. If given the choice would you be induced?

I was in the same position with my son. I never went into labor and the days just passed. Around 9/10 days late they asked me what I wanted to do. I had the choice of being induced (with a potential 10 lb baby!) or waiting to see what happens. I wound up scheduling a c-section for day 13 that would have been scheduled if something had happened on its own. But it never did. My son was 13 days late and 10 lbs 13 oz!!! My fear was winding up w/ a csection anyways after laboring for hours.

I went the day before my due date and opted for induction. It was a great experience. I had dilated to 2cm and 75% effaced and stayed there for like 3 weeks!!!

For us it was a combo of convenience and I was so done with being PG
