I think so, a girl from our Active Birth class had one as her DH was coming home specially for her due date as he was in the Navy, was only allowed 1 week off so if she'd been late he wouldn't have been there :rolleyes:

I think there has to be a really good reason though before they will induce you, such as SPD etc?

;(Me too Kizzy. I'm planning a good old cry when it finally sinks in that my baby is missing a granny.

Kizzy I requested mine, they wanted to give me a c-section exactly on my due date but I nagged and nagged until I got my induction :))

Part of my reason was that baby Giorgia was born on the 3rd feb, and Lolly was due the 5th, I didn't want to risk having them born on the same date. IOW they did it for compassionate reasons :))

Do remember Kizzy that induction can lead to extra complications which may have been avoided if baby was allowed to come in his/her own time.

I know it's tricky with your family situation but how much worse will you be if your labour ends up with you having a section because you were induced. Your recovery would take far longer which would be even harder with another child to care for.

I know it's a worry and is probably playing on your mind but the research shows that babies that come out under their own fruituion are statistically more likely to come out the trap door rather than the sunroof ;)

You're not alone Kizzy, everyone feels like that in the last few weeks and nearly everyone wants their baby out out out! I'll bet you felt the same when your DS was born?

I know it's a big fat cliche but although you're feeling fat, fed up, tired, sore and impatient you KNOW it will be just as hard when baby comes, just for a different set of reasons. It would be nice to have baby, spend a couple of days with it and then put it back in for another couple of weeks so that you can have a rest. It's far... far harder with two!

Why not do your Christmas shopping while you have the time? :D

Torisen,

I requested an induction rather than a c-section which can have even more complications. With my obstetric history our consultant was very wary about letting me go to term anyway. We all thought that Lolly would end up being early as she didn't have alot of room in the womb, I have a bicornuate uterus and because the second chamber hadn't shrunk away as it should we decided on a medically managed birth incase of any complications.

With Lolly I didn't want to take any risks whatsoever, of course in a perfect world I wouldn't have had any problems with carrying a baby, and I'd be able to sit and wait until she was ready to make her entrance :)) As it was I had an awful time of it with the induction, but I don't regret it. It wasn't an ideal situation but we just had to make the best of it :))

I was induced cos I'd been in labour for 18 hours and was knackered and it had been that long since my waters had broken.

Jenny, what position were you in?

Sam, If my obstetrician would say that I needed it I would def do it but not because of the 41,5 week limit :) Anything to keep my baby safe.
My mum went 42 weeks with both her children so that is what I am aiming for!

I completely agree there, if we are lucky enough to have baby #2 I will be aiming for a natural birth :)) You are one of the very few people I know who actually wants to go over though!!! :D

Jen you must've had your labour augmented if you had already been labouring for 18 hours chick. Induction is to start the ball rolling if there's nothing happening ;)

Wella, I agree :) No two cakes bake the same in different ovens :D
