I'm 39+4, MW tried to do a sweep on Monday but cervix was still closed. Baby was engaged 4/5. Doctor has asked to see me on Friday to try a sweep again otherwise induction. I've had severe chest tightness on & off during my pregnancy which is the reason for doctors trying at 39weeks.

To go for induction or not? Go for C-Section?

This is my first pregnancy & I've got GD (diet controlled) & BMI of 42. And asthmatic.

Any advice & suggestions would be much appreciated

I think given there are complicating factors, the best thing would be to follow medical advice. Lots of posters will have views on c-sections/inductions/delaying inductions etc. (and I'd love to give mine!) but my gut feeling is you should listen to your doctors.
