Hi...  I'm in 40th week.  On Monday my doc told they will induce for labor. As this is my 1st pregnancy how long will it take for me to deliver?  I had got Nst and internal exam today and everything was fine.  Please advise.

it is entirely dependent on your luck lady! some deliver within half hour and some in a day... just pray to God and don't stress.. no matter what the labour, God and nature will give you the strength and when you see the baby, you will forget all the pain... All the best, lots of hugs and love from all of us... We are waiting too, so do let us in on the good news!!!

Greeshma Pavan I think your doctor should wait till 40th week completion as you are fine...as sometime  labor starts at edge....I also delivered at 39 weeks 3rd day after my water broke....was in labor for 15hours and delivered normally....if your body was active should not take much time as they wait till regular and increasing contractions to push as the baby comes in birth canal....keep breathing in and out at every contraction to help you bear the pain.... delivery totally depends on women how her body and mind handles...be strong you are going to be mommy soon....
