Hi ladies, I am 37 weeks(completed) pregnant and my doctor has said that they need to induce me once 38 weeks completes - ie., next week as i have gestational diabetes and on insulin and baby weight is already 3'4 kgs... I am slightly overwhelmed about induction than the actual contractions and delivery it self. Please help me understand 1. How wil induction be done? Will it be very painful to begin with?
2. If the baby weight is >3.5 kg is it sure that episiotomy will be done?
3. Anything else that i should be knowing before going next week?
4. Any ways to naturally prepare my body for labor by next week? Thanks in advance
