was induced with my first two and had my third naturally. i went late with all three but this last one was only 3 days over. they usually don't want you to go in until your contractions are 3-5 mins apart but i would call if they are consistent and not going away with movement and drinking fluids. good luck to you both!!View Thread

nobody has commented or posted anything in a while... is everybody ok?? i keep getting on hoping to see a birth story but nothing!! so how long does everybody have left? i'm due in 9 days! i keep hoping for any day now but my little man has other ideas i guess, he wants to be like his big sisters i think. oh well, he won't be in there forever. at most i think i have 2 1/2 weeks because that's about how over due my girls were.. about a week to a week and a half.View Thread
wouldn't do it unless it is medically necessary. the recovery time is longer plus i've heard it hurts more. plus if you go naturally you can lay down to sleep with little to no pain, if you get a c section, i don't think there is any comfortable position. what are your reasons for wanting a c section? plus most doctors won't let you go naturally after you've had a c section, too worried about it coming open during labor.View Thread
sounds kinda like you lost your mucous plug. i would just tell your doctor at your next appt. to see if there's anything else to be worried about. when are you due? i'm due in about a month, a day before valentine's day.View Thread
yay!! i'm still waiting trying to bake him for a little bit longer. so i take it you're formula feeding? i wish my hubby would've got up in the middle of the night but no... lol i would get the baby and feed her (for both girls). what i'm worried about is that we're getting him circumsized, did you guys do that for canaan? i'm scared because i don't know what to do seeing as i've never had to worry about it.View Thread
