    was induced with my first two and had my third naturally. i went late with all three but this last one was only 3 days over. they usually don't want you to go in until your contractions are 3-5 mins apart but i would call if they are consistent and not going away with movement and drinking fluids. good luck to you both!!

    I am in your same situation, but the blog Birth Without fear has a lot of great birth stories, most of which detail how labor started . I love this site it has really helped me overcome the a lot of unknown fears I had about birth and believe in my body! I highly recommend checking it out ... here is a link
