Well no luck trying to convince the doctor to induce me! They do what is called a "Bishops Score" It is a number from 1-5 on these 5 areas:
You need to have at least an 8 to be considered "Induce-able" I scored a 5! 1 in each area, lowest possible score! So the doctor said I can be induced Monday or I can come into the office on Monday and they can check my score again and give me another week! If I go to the hospital on Monday and I am still a 5 the chance of a c-section is 50%! At this point to be honest I really do not care how this baby comes out, but it is going to come out Monday, one way or another!
