I got induced at 39 weeks, cause i was in well that kind of labor for almost 2 weeks. So i yelled at my doctor and told them to get him out of me.

Pretty much labor is a waiting game towards the end.

I know how impatient you can get towards the end but with your first your very likely to go over due.

i was 3 cm for a long time but my water broke before contractions even started. but as soon as 4cm a half hour later i was 9cm and pushing 15 min later my daughter was born. i had no epridual. so i think you will have your baby really soon! good luck!!

Hopefully your baby will come soon since you're 39 weeks pregnant and 4cm dilated! I was 3 cm 70 thinned for almost 2 weeks. The baby came a day before my due date! Congrats and good luck! I hope he comes soon!
