    Default Should I be worried??

    I'm due to be induced with my very first baby on the 6th of dec at 39+5weeks gestation.

    I'm worried that it will trigger a cascade in intervention and end in a c sec.

    When I had my internal exam last Wednesday the OB said my cervix was thin and soft but she didn't want to do a S&S because she said it was likely to trigger my labour.

    I'm very anxious about going into labour without my mum, mum arrives on the 6th in the morning, so I guess the OB figured if she left me alone it would give mum enough time to get here.

    But seeing as my cervix is soft and thin should I dilate and be fine??? Or will the fact that I'm being induced and didn't wait for my body to go into spontaneous labour be a determining factor in ending up with a c sec???

    TIA

    I can only give you my own experience, I was induced and yes it did end in a c-section. I also know that induction does have an increased risk of c-section. I think it is something like 30% of inductions end in c-section.

    Ask your ob what the induction plan is? Will it be gel? Break the waters? There are lots of ways to induce which will lead to spontaneous labour.

    I also know a lot of stories of women who have been induced and did not have a c-section. I'm sure they will post too.

    Congrats on meeting your bubba soon!

    There is an increased risk of a c-section without a doubt.

    But I was induced when bubba wasn't even engaged and managed to push him out 8 hours later. So it is possible!!

    That's good to know. So many women labour after the gel and having their waters broken naturally, my best mate did 1 week ago. She had the gel, then waters broken, 7 hour labour naturally. It definitely happens.

    Don't be afraid, just trust your body and remain in control! Don't be pushed into anything.

    I was induced twice and had two natural births :-)

    Good luck! xx
