A little background. My first baby was induced at 35 weeks because of growth restriction less than 10th percemtile.
My second baby came naturally at 37 weeks 1 day. With my current pregnancy, i was sure i would deliver somewhere around 37 weeks again. But here i am. Sep.4 today and still no labour!
I have bee n measuring 2 cm, 50 percent effaced, station -2. Not much progress on appt. 2 days ago. I am going to visit ob again on tuesday, sep.6.
i had braxton hicks 2 weeks ago, then intermittently, now last night they were 10-15 min. apart for an hr. Bu t i slept over them, and they went away.
My gut feeling is that my due date will pass! The doctor s going to ask on sep. 6 what i want.
What should i say? How much longer should i wait after my due date for the baby to come on it s own?
I am just scared to hear stories of still birth so far into pregnancy.......On the other hand, i really am excited about going into labour naturally, rather than being induced...my first induction was easy and quick, bu t i still wan t to avoid induction complications...like failure, vacuum etc..
What do u say?
