I don't get why they insist on offering an epi straight away. I really don't. Luckily my hospital are quite reluctant to give them anyway so was never offered. I did ask at one point during the labour with Oscar but by then it was too late.

I obviously have no basis for comparison as I have only ever been induced so I'm not sure what the pain of an induction is like versus the pain of a natural onset labour.

TommyG why do they want to induce you at 40 weeks? Medical reasons? If not, you are well within your rights to say no thank you.

I've had two inductions, one natural. The pain is no different imo. What was different for me was I went into hospital in established labour for my natural so was offered gas and air straight away. My inductions I was left on the ward and only had paracetamol despite insisting I needed something else (they thought I wasn't in labour as it was 'too quick'). I would never refuse induction, my Third baby it wasn't a concrete reason at all and in hindsight wasn't necessary but I would do It again. Good luck

I've no clue smiley. They say things like you will need it and similar. Their favourite one when I was having Orion was that they've never seen anyone have an induction without any pain killers. It gets inside women's head and it makes them believe that they can't do it, they might not mean that it happen but it's why language to pregnant women is so important.

For me induction with pessary or gel was the same as spontaneous labour but with a drip was far more intense.

Declined sweep today, will have one either Thursday or Friday I expect. Midwife is also going to confirm plan for additional monitoring if no arrival by Saturday.

Still hoping things will start, still a bit niggly with back and plug gone.

The reasons given for not wanting me to go over 40 weeks are my age 41 & IVF baby.
The reason for IVF isn't age related my AMH (ovarian reserve) was off the scale but that is what happens when you don't ovulate on a monthy basis.

I did have a sweep the last time and probably will again. My logic with a sweep is if your aren't ready to go into labour it won't work.

I don't think it is wise to refuse if it has gone beyond 42 weeks.
