Okay so I know Im a long way off still, but I just want to prepare myself so I dont agree to anything I might regret. So my question is to those peole who have been induced in the past. If I have to be I want to know the best way to go. I understand the drip method is really bad and makes the contractions worse? the breaking of the waters can put the baby at risk of infection and can distress it more if the labour then takes ages plus it can get caught in the cord. So themthere is the gel still that helps the cervix to dilate or something, has anyone had this and was it awful? Im intending once I get to 38 weeks, to start doing all the pregnancy inducing things like eating pinnaples, having sex, eating curries etc to try to kick start things, as I understand its common to be late with your first.
