Thanks ladies. My MW defiantly seemed to think the same thing Jackie, and it's nice knowing that if I do have to deliver with someone who I don't know as well, I don't have to get into much detail about why I don't want miso and all of that. If not while DH is home, it would be convenient to walk into l&d for the amnio and be in active labor for the NST prep work.
Lynn - Thanks for sharing! It's always reassuring to hear stories like yours. I would love a similar outcome. While DD came out screaming her lungs off, it's hard with it being a 50/50 thing. Everyone seems to think this baby will be bigger so I'm hoping that will mean less preterm issues if he comes early.
I'm late seeing your lodge, sorry about that. I can't believe we're already both so close to the end! I hope everything goes smoothly and easily for you!
Thanks Amber! I'm so pumped that we will have LOs close in age again. I'm trying to stay positive that I could get to all the intervention stuff as I know my body won't need much. I'm still an emotional basket case today but in a grateful way 90% of the time. Lost a huge amount of mucus plug today but contractions are still 8 min apart when they're consistent so I'm not holding my breath just yet.
I hope you are able to skirt right around all the interventions too! I know I had some definite reservations about being induced but lucked out that even though I did, my body was able to quickly take over and then there was only one other intervention after that. Your body sounds like it knows that your time is getting close! Either way, I think that will work in your favor!

Thanks Shauna, that's what I tell myself. I know how easily my body is influenced with labor and if we get there, I know it won't take much.
Contractions got to about 5.5 min apart last night but I forced myself to go to bed before that hit an hour. Felt really nauseos with them and am the same now (DH just left for work a while ago). Thankfully, he's only 1.5 hours away today so if things pick up he should be home in plenty of time. I tried going back to sleep but that just isn't happening so I"m going to just lounge on the couch and see if these space or get more consistent. I'm still in disbelief that a baby is coming out of my vagina soon . . .
I think you'll be having a baby soon with that last post!
ETA: I feel bad for DH. He's a really mellow, easy going guy and I have been queen b*tch the last couple of nights. Last night we got into an argument over a $2.00 marker board and I almost ripped his head off. he just looked at me like I was nuts.
My babysitter for DD during the amnio tomorrow had to back out because her car broke down and is in the shop until who knows when, but thankfully DH was able to talk my FIL into coming over. He did raise three kids so I'm sure Em won't kill him.
Contractions pick up with activity, but other then that they're just pinchy with pressure and infrequent from what I can gather. Lost more plug today, was sad when it wasn't my water breaking. Hoping to convince DH to DTD tonight. Maybe I'll be contracting enough at the pre amnio NST to warrant a cervix check that shows I'm 7 cm?
