Who's next?

I know a lot of you have posted about c-sections and upcoming inductions, but I am having trouble keeping track. Any predictions about who will be next? I really hope it's you, Sheila!!

I kind of wish it were me next, but I have a feeling I'm in it for the long haul, lol.

I couldn't even begin to predict. I never would have guessed the mama's who have already gone! I am really excited for Sheila's babies. And for Krystal too! She has been so uncomfortable. I'm convinced I will make it to 41 weeks lol

Really don't think it will be me. But I guess you never really know. Our babies will decide when they are ready to come out.

This is true! So close, and yet so far...lol. My doctor isn't big on inducing just because I'm uncomfortable, which I understand, and will let me go over my EDD since it's my first baby.

honestly, if I didn't have a c-section scheduled for 11/25, I think I would be waiting at least until the second week in December! My babies like to stay put! My first was 1-week late, induced and still had to be taken out by force! There's nothing going on thus far....

I have a feeling I am going to be hanging on for awhile, even though the doc said I could go early. I just bought a cute little 1st Christmas sleeper for Evelyn and now I think I jinxed myself by doing so. I'll probably still be waddling around on Christmas morning wondering what the hell happened to an early delivery. LOL.

Bah ... I'm pretty sure mine will never come out. For MONTHS I had a feeling it would be November 16!

My boyfriend is working just in the morning tomorrow so that we can go to my billion afternoon appointments, so tomorrow afternoon would be ideal timing. If at tomorrow's appointment they choose to induce, I hope it's not immediately and that I get a chance to walk around for an evening beforehand. I really don't want to deal with pitocin. Whether there's an induction or not, I hope it's when an OB I'm more comfortable with is on call. Two of the OBs in the practice are so supportive of vaginal deliveries for me that if they were to make the call that it needs to be a c-section, I'd completely trust their judgement. Some of the other OBs are a little too scalpel-happy for me.

Judging from today's appointment I will be having a new years baby LOL Cervix is closed up tight and Connor is still breech.

I am due 12/14.....I am not expecting to go until the beginning of Dec at the earliest. Other than that I agree with the earlier post....I can't even guess. I would be so wrong!

Hmm, I don't want to try and predict too far ahead, but I am going to say Sheila, Krystal, then Carolyn...and part of me feels like I should put myself in there somewhere after last night and today. But instead I will just believe I am going late so I am not so disappointed when/if it actually happens! :rolleyes:

I agree w/ everybody you guys have listed! Sheila's gotta be next!

I had my 37 week appt yesterday and I'm dialated just under 2cm. 50% effaced, -1 station. I've had a few contractions today (nothing timeable though) and had some pink tinged CM this morning. So I'm guessing I'll go sooner rather than later!

What are they calling the November babies anyway? Pumpkins? Tiny turkeys?
I won't mind if my tinsel tot is a tiny turkey Smile

That's great Ashley! The pink CM could be a sign but it also could be from the exam. :/

I think Sheila's next. Then:
Krystal
Carolyn
Hilary
me
Ashley

Then it again it could be anyone!

I would have to agree with this! I actually was losing my mucus plug last night... my first time ever losing it with ANY of my babies! I've been cramping here and there, so I'm guessing that on my appt Friday I'll either be dialted enough that she'll just send me stright over to the hospital, or she'll induce me Friday due to his size... fingers crossed!
