    I believe it definately worked for me. My appointment was the Saturday morning and my waters broke 2am Sunday.
    I was also showing very few signs of going into labour prior to this

    Thanks Taiyed, I'm actually quite thankful that my ob was talking about an induction, it motivated me into getting acupuncture when maybe I wouldn't have. I had this feeling something wasn't right with Aaron's growth when my fundal height stopped growing at 34 weeks. Even though ob said it was normal for things to slow down at this point, each week, I became more convinced something wasn't right, she measured my amniotic fluid and was reassured by the amount (a healthy placenta wont produce fluid and your levels drop). At the last appointment she said "hmmm" after measuring my height and brought forward the induction two days. Anyway as it turns out the placenta was breaking down and was an "awful colour". His umbilical cord was described as "anorexic" and actually snapped as he was being born. But after all that, other than being small, he's perfect, got a 9 & 9 apgar and has put on heaps of weight. Id hate to think what could have happened in a further 3 days. Trust your instincts.

    I'm not sure, I have an appointment on the 13th with ob and pead and I have heaps of questions to ask, ill add that one to my list. I'm also paranoid about the umbilical cord as I know it is oftern a sign of chromosomal issues.
