I’m currently 40+2 and have been in and out of appointments this week to determine the size of the baby. Midwife was concerned his growth has tailed off but the growth scan showed quite the opposite and that he’s currently slightly above the 90th centile line.
They offered a sweep at my 40wk app which I declined but after the scan they talked about possible induction after my 41wk scan if he hasn’t come naturally by then, due to his size.
I’m just wondering what experiences people had of being induced? I know everyone is going to be different so will still keep an open mind but things I’ve heard and have been reading don’t fill me with hope - contractions being more intense and mother needing painkillers, traumatic labour (I guess because baby isn’t ready to step into the world) etc etc.
Just reading up on the options so I fully know what to expect next week should he still be sitting cosy and just wanted a bit of advice if poss!
Hope everyone is well xx
