Induction for reduced fetal movement?

Just after the experiences of others.

I am 36+4 and have now been to the DAU 4 times for reduced movement (26+2, 32, 36, 36+2, 36+3). Had a growth scan at 32 weeks (all fine) as FH 4 weeks behind. It caught up but then they admitted me on Sunday as my fundal height was 4 weeks behind again, and due to the repeated incidents of RFM. Was on 4 hourly CTGs. Half of which were fine, the other 3 I ended up being on for 2 plus hours as they tried to establish a consistent baseline. On one the baby had gone insane at the beginning and then had decelerations. Ultimately they were happy and after another growth scan today (all fine) they discharged me.

I am to go in for twice weekly CTGs starting on Weds and have a consultant appt on Thursday as although I am scheduled for a HB, I want to discuss induction as all I am really concerned about is that she is here safely.

Sorry...long ramble...

The ask is has anyone else been in this position? I will be 37 weeks when I see the consultant. What is the likelyhood he will either recommend or agree to an induction?

This is my 2nd baby, first was a 6hr spontaneous labour at 38+4 but I know there is no guarantee this one will be similar gestation.

I was admitted on my due date, due to reduced movements and slowed growth (I had a bleed at 33 weeks too, so they were keeping an eye on me). They started the induction that day and DD arrived 2 days later smile

I'd say the chances are fairly high, if that's what you wish for. They were very keen to induce me- it was the reduced movement that was the deciding factor
