Got my date!

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!!!

4+7=11 Biggrin

Congrats on having your date!! That is so exciting. I'm amazed at your induction experiences!! I hope it goes smoothly this time also!! and SOOO jealous that your DH gets so much time off work. My DHs boss (he works in an ER) was a total jerk about it and didn't even want to give him a couple days off... Ugh!!

Anderson will be here in no time!!! Yahoo

That's great!! April 7 is just around the corner! YAY! I agree, it does make more sense to do it that way given your DH's schedule!

Can't wait to hear about the birth and to see pics of Anderson!

April 7th is next week!!!!!! woohoo! I think I'd probably go the induction route too if dh had a schedule like that - glad he'll be able to be there for you and baby!

Caity - that's just horrible! What an a**!

OOoooh so close! I'm pretty sure I'd also choose to have an induction with your DH's situation. And that's great that he'll have 3 weeks off to help you.

Ya know, I'm not big into inductions, but given the circumstances, I'd be right there with ya! Woohoo to have a date and yay for having your labor coach and your husband there for support for the other kiddos.

So excited for you Bet!! YAY! You will be going 6 days before me unless I defy the laws of nature and somehow go on my own which wont happen. Sounds like Anderson is going to be a bruiser! I will be watching for a text updating that day!! Hope this labor is super short for you.
