    just wondered how many of u needed to be induced due to going overdue with your 1st baby?
    i know they say 1st babies are often late but am really hoping i go into labour naturally. my hospital let u go 10 days over before they will induce u but seem to hear of so many women having to be induced for this reason with their 1st. thanks in advance

    i voted yes(wasnt sure which to pick) i went 10 days overdue with my first, i went into the hospital to be induced but i was 2-3 cm dilated so they didnt have to give me drugs to start me but they broke my waters and he was born 3 and a half hours later :) xxx

    i really dont know for sure but i didnt need anything put up there because i was 2-3cm already so hopefully you wont need it either :) but i cant say you definitely wont. i think the stuff they put up is to get you to be dilated enough to break you water xxx

    At my appointment today she talked to me about the induction process. She didn't check me for dilation/effacement today but she said because last time I was checked my cervix wasn't ready so they will insert the gel to prepare my cervix for labour. Does that sound about right?

    Cool, i remember bits of my last induction i was only 18 i went in at 6am had two things put up there* in a few hours then they broke my waters i didnt have her til nearly 8pm that night but now this is my forth ive lost lots of plug the head cant go down any further and im 2cm dilated hopefully i might get away with just the breaking of my waters that would be lovely.. ive not had a labour without a drip in my hand yet, as all of them needed to be speeded up a mw said the otherday i labour really well its just getting me there lol.. Thanks hun x

    Sorry popped in from almost second tri (just 2 days until 2nd tri). I was induced at 13 days overdue with my son. I was 3cm dilated so they just broke my waters.

    you should ask your midwife/Doc next time you have a visit hun :) you'd get a much better answer since we're all in diff countries and time has changed etc blah blah! ;)

    I can't actually be apart of the poll yet, but I'm assuming I'll go really late seeing as it runs in the family. My hospital "does inductions" at 40+12 days but if I reach that point I won't be getting induced. I'll opt for monitoring instead. :thumbup:
