I just had an appointment with my wonderful doctor (who I love and trust) yesterday. So for all you who might be wondering why not just get induced now, here are some reasons:
- My body isn't showing any signs of labor and so artificially inducing labor might not even work (and could lead to an emergency c-section).
- It is best for the body to do all it can on it's own and at this point only patience is required.
- I'm measuring smaller than I was with Oliver, so we are hoping he's not as big.
- My doctor (who came on call right as I needed to push Oliver out and I feel possibly saved his life) will be out of town this weekend but in the hospital next weekend. For me, that alone is worth a whole week of waiting!
