    I am 37+3 and i have been very emotional and i am not usually a crying person. It may be a combination of the two-being told about being induced and the hormones. Here is a big :hugs::hugs:

    I think its just that this has been a tough pregnancy physically, and took us so long to get here as we needed IVF and I really wanted a natural birth and now I guess I am just down cause now I need induction and I really am scared to have a c-section.. really wanted to avoid it... just wanted something to go right.. but i know that it will be all worth it when i have her in my arms..

    thanks ladies :hugs:

    Hi I'm due on the same day as you. Can I ask why do you need to be induced? It's rough, nobody wants that in an ideal world, but they must have a reason for doing so and the safety of your baby is the most important thing. Just try to focus on the prize at the end and sending you :hugs:

    I think we all go through phases where we feel particularly emotional/tempremental. I am feeling like that at the moment (I'm 30 weeks pregnant). One minute Im laughing, the next Im crying etc. Its a combination of hormones, tiredness and worry. Its perfectly normal! Just make lots of time for yourself and remember that there is nothing wrong with a good cry! :hugs: Good luck!

    you never know she might decide to pop out early and save you the induction. And try not to worry the induction might actually go really well... but I know what you mean about wanting her to come when she's ready. Good luck x

    Awww, :hugs: sorry this induction has rreally got you down! But like I said they usually have a good success rate, will you be having a sweep before hand as this can sometims help prepare the cervix better and then you more likely to be fine on induction, it's ok hun, honestly and like the above said you may not have to wait until induction sweetie.

    I also think it's normal to feel like this, i got really emotional at 31 weeks, cldn't cope was in so much pain, but i'm coming through the other side, but i know there's usally anotehr dip around 38-40 weeks as it all comes to an end, i think it's just your body and mind transitioning into what will be happening.

    Huge hugs, and sincerely hope you feel better!
