26 week checkup

Everything went good. Measuring right on and baby's heartrate was 156. She went ahead an gave me a scrip for protonix for heartburn since I always get a severe case. So far zantac is working but I know it won't be within the next couple of weeks. The big news though is that she officially scheduled an induction for Tues, Oct 23rd! I've been induced with all the boys for varying reasons. I'd love to go on my own but with my due date one day before Halloween and 2 days before DS3's bday, I decided to just go ahead and do the induction. Plus with my history of GD and big babies, it might not be a bad thing. She is going to have me come in on the 22nd and she's going to strip my membranes to see if maybe that will get me going on my own. It's worth a shot! SO excited that my baby will be here in less than 13 weeks!

That is great Smile and, to already have an end date, how exciting. I keep going and looking at the birth board months that are starting to post their birth stories (july and Aug right now) and keep thinking that it wont be too much longer (though, hopefully not too soon either) and we will be all of our turns Smile

How exciting, and glad you had such a good appointment!

I looked at the calendar and realized when (if) we got to a wedding we were invited to, I'll be 37 weeks. It's close to home, so we don't have to travel anywhere, but amazing to think about how close I'll be to holding my baby at that time!!

YAY! Thats great!
Im a little bit jealous that she'll induce you early. I REALLY want an Oct baby but Im due the end of oct so I figure I'll have a November. hehe

I've always wanted to go into labor on my my but this time with everything around the due date, I just figured I'd go for it. I'm glad she 'll induce too although that's only if my body is ready. It's never been an issue before though so I'm sure I'll be ready.
