my gynaec did an internal check and said I have still not started to open up, I also got an ultrasound done and baby head is still not engaged, my doctor wants me to wait for labour to start till Monday or get induced. is there a possibility for induction to b successful as body not showing signs of labour? I am 40 weeks 1 day today

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

U can weight till Monday as ur gynecologist told, as she examined you. But, u should observe baby movements carefully. There should be 10 movements in 12hr time. If you feel that they have come down or any discharge per vagina, meet ur gynecologist immediately. Do walking. All the best

Shyama Santhosh

It is wise to wait till Monday. Even if there are no sign of labour, induction is possible for you to get Nirmal delivery done depending on baby position that time. All the best


I hope induction is successful and I don't land up in c section.

Sonali Shivlani

Your doctor does want to wait till Monday. The baby's head engaging is one of the crucial aspects of labor starting or induction being successful. However in some cases with the induction and maybe breaking the bag of waters the head may come down.


that's why I am worried doctor as I feel induction won't b successful as head is not engaged yet
