Requesting Induction

BIANCA • Wife to my high school sweetheart 💕💏 New York, New York First munchkin on the way

Experienced mamas I need some advice.

I am 39w1d pregnant. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow with my OB. I want to ask her about possible induction due to my history of Bipolar Disorder and manic depression. It’s been really bad lately, I didn’t take anything during pregnancy out of fear of harming my baby. Is this an unreasonable request? I don’t want to seem selfish but I need my medication and I worry about the depression getting worse. It’s getting hard to do things like eat and even bathing myself (I know super gross). I cry almost everyday and I’m hoping having the baby and getting medication right away will help me.

Any ideas of comments?

Thank you 🙏
