Ok im 39 weeks pregnant and only 1 in a half CM dilated and 50%effaced can I ask to be induced im so ready for it to be over?

ABSOLUTELY!!!!: It is up to your doctor, if you were my pt i would induce you as the ideal time to deliver is 39-40 weeks according to a large study, i would admit you in the evening, put cervadil in the vagina to ripen the cervix and start Pitocin and rupture membranes the next morning, induction now can prevent csection from macrosomia, meconium, cord problems which all become more common the longer you go ! ...Read more

39 weeks pregnant.  1 CM dilated, no contractions. I walk a lot and nothing. Im really anxious in having my baby. Any tips?

IF u were my pt: Would offer to induce you, induction when done properly is very safe and effective and has prevented hundreds of c-sections in my practice, a large recent study says the safest and best time for the baby to be delivered is 39-40 weeks.Please talk to your OB about getting induced. ...Read more

So close to birth: Hi are you ready? This sounds like your uterus is preparing to begin labor. The frustrating part is that we cannot predict how long this transition phase will take before you are in active labor. But, you are getting closer. Congratulations. ...Read more

At 38 weeks i was 1 CM dilated. Now 39 weeks pregnant feeling shortness of breath, having cramp like pains and constipated. is this normal.

At 38 weeks i was 1 CM dilated. Now 39 weeks pregnant feeling shortness of breath, having cramp like pains and constipated. is this normal.

Call OB: At 39 wks the baby can definitely cause some SOB due to much less room to breathe; you may feel like you are panting because you have to take more frequent small breaths. Constipation can also be common with pregnancy for many reasons: pressure on bowels, dehydration, slower transit of stool to absorb more nutrients. However if SOB at rest and coupled with cramping, call your OB to double check. ...Read more

Depends on situation: Your question is a great one but was cut off. So your doctor is willing to induce under certain circumstances? I am not sure what he plans so cannot comment on the specific case. In general, a cervix that is 3 cm in someone who has had a previous vaginal delivery will efface by the due date. If discomfort, then some physicians will consider inducing labor (amniotomy, eg) each case varies though. ...Read more

Could be : Obviously you should follow your doctor specific instructions. In general it is time to go to the hospital when contractions are five minutes apart or at least an hour, if your water breaks, or if the baby is moving less than five times per hour. ...Read more
