Copied from the April '11 board
Baby is measuring 8 lbs 12 oz today! :eek: She said the measurement is +/- about 1 pound. I decided to go with the induction plan at 39 weeks, not just because he is big. My DH is an airline pilot and has taken 3 weeks off for the baby to come. If I hang around and go overdue he will be back at work flying all over the country (and some internationally). Our families live 4 hours away and 8 hours away, so it just makes sense to plan for him to come so the kids are taken care of and so that I have my labor coach with me, plus help after the baby gets here. I have had great induction experiences with relatively short labors (~7 hours and ~5.5 hours) so I'm expecting and hoping for a similar experience this time. The BIG DAY is April 7th...the countdown has begun!!!
