Two days before my due date my doctor decided to induce me....I think he knew there would be problems and wanted to be sure that he would be there(he had already told me that he had plans for that weekend and would be away). Well, I did have complications and had to have an emergency c-section after 14 1/2 hours of HARD labor. Even though I wish I could've had her natural I kinda wish he had just done the c-section to begin with. I was in so much pain for so long and exhausted...and my poor baby was in distress....the stupid nurse made me so mad cause she knew that my daughter's heart rate was dropping with every contraction(not good, the cord was wrapped around her neck twice) and I remember her making a comment about how if she called the doctor he would say c-section. If I had been able to talk I would've told her to call him or I was going to....unfortunately that was impossible for me to do. That nurse even had me pushing. I'm still really mad at her! Know what you want to happen and tell the doctor what your expectations are and your spouse.....!!!!

I was induced at 38 weeks with my daughter due to gestational diabetes & 3 days later had her by c-section. My waters broke at 38 weeks with my son but due to my contractions disappearing for 28 hours was put on the drip to help bring them back but once again it failed & i had him by c-section also.

oh btw..my other three i had a week early...i spoke to my doctor and he said walking alot and exercising would help me go into labor and he also said that sex would help...and all three times i had sex just a couple hours before and then i was having a baby...so just to let you know as long as your doc says its ok i would say try sex...

My oldest was 3 days early, and my youngest was 3 days late. So, 39.5 and 40.5.

Sounds like your making real good progress, Heather. It won't be long now! Congrats! :D

I went into preterm labor with my twins at 20 weeks. We almost lost them at 22 weeks. After 9 weeks in the hospital and tons of drama, they were born at 29 weeks....almost 3 months early. But, God is good and they are now very happy, healthy 4 yr olds.

I was 3cm and full effaced with my first and a week later went into labor..I was 3 1/2 weeks early, my second tried coming earlier than that about 9 weeks, but they were able to stop it and put it on hold until about 3 weeks before the due date. Good luck!
