I finally agreed to my doctor to have an induction if I don't go into labor on my own at 39 weeks. The reason for the induction is, I have very fast labors (fifth baby) and transitioned last time from 6 to 10 under 2 min. The baby was out with just under 6 min of pushing. The problem is, I walk around at 5 cm at the end of the pregnancy, so it leaves very little time to do much or get to the hospital. I've already started to dialate and efface back at 23 weeks, and although I don't know what I am now, it's following the pattern of my other pregnancies. That being said, I don't have my babies early, I just have really fast deliveries
So my induction date is looking to be Nov 18th, just two days away from my due date. The doctor keeps saying he doesn't know if I'll make it that far, I sure hope I do. Anything starting end of October, they won't stop.
The problem is, if I go into labor before my planned induction date, I have little help and I'm in nursing school. It throws off my whole semster. If we reach the induction date, I'll have lots of help and support. *sigh*. I'm so praying this little guy stays in, as long as he's doing good in there (God's will first, I know, but I just want to be ready)..
Also I've found a doula! YEAH! She's super nice and she's going on my hospital tour next week. The rest of the month is filled with nursing school and drs appointments, either prenatal or pediatric for the children. I guess I'm 7 weeks away from being fullterm and need to be ready (for the most part) by then, and then those last two weeks, sleeeeeeeep to prevent labor. Haha.
Oh yeah..btw: He went headdown! Now if he just stays put and I pass the GBS at 36 weeks, we'll be ready to rock!
Anyway how is everyone else's plans going?
