    Hello sir....well,i believe your doctor is on the right track...we would usually wait till 42 before a decision is made to induce the pregnancy.hence she can still go into spontaneous labour within 2 weeks from today.if by then ,she hasn't gone into labour,its probably the wise thing to induce as planets function starts to decline putting the baby in danger.at that time your doctor should also inform you that induction MAY fail and delivery ends up in a CD.either way, it's about having a healthy baby.

    hi sir,i have answers your question above...I said after 42weeks, if nothing has still not happened the wise thing will be to induce labour.After 42 weeks,the placentas function starts to wane,putting the baby at risk.i hope I have explained.

    doc in have been using glasses since 1992.. if I am subjected to some stress may being under the sun or not eating when I am suppose to eat . I will start having some cram around my eyes which sometime will lead headache. I have gone to optician and my glass is OK. even when they tried to increase the Lance it made me to have headaches.. my lance is ok but my Irish muscle stresses me out when I am subjected to some stresses and this always make me to drink sudrus or paracetamol..

    hiello again...I'm not sure why this may be happening...one thing seems obvious though.being stressed worsens it or triggers it.sometimes that's the best treatment-preventing triggers...apart from the optician,have you seen an opthalmologist???Maybe you should try to see one.

    OK what is the the difference between optician and opthalmologist. because u adviced me to see one initially thought the two are the Same thing

    hello sir... An optician, or dispensing optician, is a technical practitioner who designs, fits and dispenses corrective lenses for the correction of a person's vision. An opthalmologist is a medical Doctor who has done a residency or training in diseases of the eye and can treat and do surgeries...depending on where you are ,like in the Uk,opticians are really good at looking into the back of the eye and making diagnosis but they are not able to treat.
