Re: Actual reasons for induction
I was induced with my second because labor with my first was only 90 minutes long, and at the time (pregnant with second) I was 45 minutes from the hospital. I was induced at 39w. With my third, I was induced because we lived in the same house (45 minutes from hospital) and also because my second was so large. I was induced at 39w with my third, and he was almost a pound bigger than my second!
With this one, I will be asking for an elective induction at 39w as well. I'm on track for another VERY large baby... and it scares me to think that waiting until 40-41 weeks would make a vaginal delivery impossible.
