41 weeks 1 day = 3cm dialated! it also = a happy/healthy/huge (8+ lb) baby. good God.

A little advice from this retired l&d nurse. The best pre-induction routine to follow is an early night with a good meal, and have sex! Sounds odd doesn't it? But semen has prostaglandins in it and that soften and ripens the cervix making labor that much easier for tomorrow. The trick is to not get up after, no easy feat when you have to pee every five minutes!
Look up natural ways to induce labor on the net, it is an old midwives trick, and I know many a doc who tell their patients to do this for the night before they are induced. Best of luck, and have a wonderful day tomorrow.
