I am a diabetic and have been told that I will be induced at either 38 or 39 weeks. How does this happen and what is involved with being induced??? Also they said that they are going to put me on drip, which I HATE the thought of having a drip(neeedle) in any part of me sticking out yuk yuk yuk. This is our first baby and the thought of going through labour with a drip in does not appeal to me at all. Are you able to tell me why they want to do this???
