Should I ask doctor?
Thu, 12-01-2011 - 6:17pm

I know it's probably a little early (I'm 25 weeks today), but I want to ask my doctor for a possiblity of being induced so I can have a date in March. We have no famiy where we live (my mom will be coming, but she is 6 1/2 hours away), I have no one to watch my kids, and my husbands job completion for the building he is doing is my actual due date. My other two children were induced (I had low fluid with both - my DD was induced @ 35 weeks and my DS @ 38).

Any thoughts or opinions would be greatly appriciated :)

I'm going to ask my dr what date she has in mind for an induction at my last appointment. Just ask if it's too early to start getting an idea at least!

It def doesn't hurt to ask! I doubt they'll schedule it this far out as they usually schedule them within a few weeks of your due date...

I asked last time, and my doc said my cervix had to be showing signs. Since it was dilating 1-2cm and softening, she allowed me to schedule. I picked my bday which ended up being 5 days before edd. There were no issues.
