Hi Am first timer and getting very impatient. I lost mucous plug 7 days ago and had sweep 6 days ago. Doc says cervix effaced and thinned and as of last week, didnt think that I would go any longer than a couple of days over. Am nervous of questioning his judgement on inducing but what does everyone think? Are there many side affects/risks?
most hospitals induce at 10days overdue- however if you dont want to be induced and baby is fine and you are fine then you can say NO! no risks to induction- just sometimes contractions can be stronger/more painful... and so you may need more pain relief- whereas if you go into labour naturally your body copes better with the pain.
I am sure your baby will be here within the 4 days! Good luck
