But that is just my opinion. I'm glad you'll get to have your hubby with you and he won't miss it. Good luck with whatever you choose
    I had a similar experience, my first two were induced for medical reasons at 39+4 and 38 weeks and while number one was very nearly a classic cascade of intervention, number 2 was drug free and a really awesome experience.

    I really didn't enjoy my c-section for number 3, the recovery was hard for me, but everybody is different.

    Best of luck xx

    Just came across this article. I've read quite a lot along the same lines. As I said, my DD was born at 38 weeks (actually, 37,5) so I always notice when something like this is published. Not trying to guilt anyone, I just think it's great to have as much info as possible when making birthing decisions.
    such a tricky situation, OP

    I don't know about being induced, because I've heard that because it's not natural it's a hell of a lot more painfull... however, a c-sec would also be sore and uncomfortable afterwards so I suppose there'd be pros and cons either way.....
    I had a very long complicated labour after induction with ds1 but that was more to do with bubs size than the induction, doubt it would have made a difference if I had gone into labour naturally. I was asked if i wanted a cs but declined. After being enduced with ds2 I had bub 4hrs later. Everyone is different.
