Hi everyone, I am currently 35 weeks and have been thru the mill with fibroid, breathing problems, and now contractions (which doc said could go on until EDD 20th Sept!) , im in severe pain and have days were i actually have so much trouble btreathing (have been in hosp for 6 weeks thru out pregnancy with everything!)...what i was wondering , is if i went and asked my consultant to induce me at 37 weeks-is this possible? I have had the lung steroid injections weeks ago so baby is 100% matured and is 6 pounds already. i know this sounds selfish but i havent slept in 3 weeks, have the blackest bags under eyes and a, in so much pain -i literally cry for hrs a day.....do u know if this is possible at all? Sorry for being a moaner-just a bad day- thanks for any advice x

You poor thing. I have no idea about being induced but think you should speak to your consultant, does he/she know how bad things are? Maybe they could give you something for the pain either at hme or in hospital :action32
