So, a number of you guys know that I'm expecting a new baby soon and that it is going to be a girl (my first after 3 boys!).

Well, my wife went to see her doctor the other day and we have set a date to go in and be induced! Provided she doesn't go into labor or have her water break before then, we will be going to the hospital Tuesday, Sept 30th.

I pray to God that she doesn't go into labor before then, but at least we now know when she'll be here at the latest. cool.gif

Induced labor IS natural. Unless the babies coming out of your ear..It's natural. They'll just give her a few pills to make her start contracting. More than likly 5 hours into it her water will break and she'll give birth. My sister was induced took her about 5-12 hours after they gave hr the pills to actually give birth. The contractions definatley weren't 'un-natural' Good luck Aaron!! I hope everything goes well!!!

Lillie Belle Corcoran

As for induced labor, it happens a lot more often than you may think. Sometimes a woman's water will break but she doesn't actually having contractions. If she goes for more than 24 hours (I think that's the timeframe) without contractions starting, that can be a serious problem for both the mother and the baby. If all the fluid is gone, both of them have a very strong chance of getting a nasty infection.

As for scheduling an induction, that also happens a lot. Especially when the expectant mother has VERY fast labors.
Our 1st son: 1.5 hours labor
Our 2nd son: 45 minutes labor
Our 3rd son: 25 minutes labor

As you can see, I very much want my wife to be AT the hospital when she goes into labor (starts having contractions), or else I very likely will be delivering my baby myself on the side of a freeway or somewhere on the way to the hospital.

So, Tuesday morning we are going to go into the hospital, get settled into our room and then the doctor is going to hook Amanda up with an IV with Patosin (they usually don't use the pills for a planned induction like this - they use the pills when they have the first scenario I talked about). It will take a couple hours for the Patosin to start working and actually get contractions started. But once they get started, considering Amanda's track record, Lillie should be born just a few minutes later!
