So I've known for a long time now that the babies will induced at 34 weeks. It's 8 days away! My DH asked me to ask the OB if there is a ️schedule. Like what time will it start. I'll ask her tomorrow.
I have heard of others mention that they have to call in the morning of their induction to see if they have room. I'll need to see if that applies to me.
Anyway, how much time did you have. Were you counting down like me?

For LO 1 I had no notice...went in for an appointment and it was go time! (For the induction I mean...I had high bp). For LO 2 I had 2 days notice I think...it's only been 4 months and I've already forgotten! lol

Ha, I had about 5 hours notice! But I was at an appointment when they said my BP was too high. I was told I had 30 min to move my car to long term parking, and make some calls before checking in at L & D. I was monitored for a few hours, and then told that yup, we were inducing once DH arrived. It was plenty of time, as I made more calls, ate lunch and relaxed during the monitoring, and I could process the fact that I was being induced, but I didn't have time to freak out!

I didn't have much notice. I went in to have my fluid checked at noon and was told to come back at five. Of course, I knew that it was possible that they would recommend an induction at that point because I was starting to have some preeclampsia symptoms and was at 41 weeks.

I had no notice. Went in for my 37 week appointment and my BP had skyrocketed and there was protein in my urine. Pre-eclampsia for me and to the hospital we went!

I went in for my 41 week check after being on bedrest with PTL since 28 weeks, my dr ask me if I was ready for an induction and I said yes! At first he scheduled me 3 days out, but then the nurse called back saying there was a roomopen at 11, that was at about 9am! I had enough time to call my Husband and my Mom, drive home to pick him and my bag up, and drive back to the hospital. By noon I was all hooked up!

A week for LO1. Was told at my 40 week that if she wasn't here by 41 I'd be induced, we made the appointment and LO was evicted as scheduled.
With LO2 we were allowed to pick the date for induction at my 40 week appointment. I chose ASAP, so we went in the next day
