Well, My doc said that he will not induce me before 42 weeks UNLESS it is medically necessary. So I have taken it upon myself to list the medical necessities for me to be induced:
Sleep deprivation/Fatigue--I think I average about 4-5 hours a night--over a period of time that's got to be medically alarming!
Chronic Heartburn-- I don't know if I have an esophagus anymore.
Shortness of Breath--
Excessive rapid weight gain- Who wants to continue to gain a pound a week PAST the due date?
Frequent bathroom visits--
When I list these, I sound like a commercial for a new medicine. Any of these would be medical reasons for alarm, but when you're pregnant you just get to live with them for 9 months (or more).
