Two Phone Calls

So the first was from work. They called around 4 pm. Apparently Cupcake couldn't get my printer to work. As soon as he was describing the problem to me I knew what was up and was able to tell him how to fix it in a matter of minutes. But I did give him flak about not being able to get through an entire day w/o calling me.  Even though I told him he could call me. It was still funny.

A few minutes later I got another call. This time from the hospital.  Apparently my OB has scheduled me for an induction on the 16th.  At my 38w appt, Dr. P said that she didn't want me going past 41 weeks. Since I hit 41w on a Sunday she would schedule it for the week before on a day when she was on call.  I guess that day is Wednesday. Anyways, they told me I'd be coming in Tuesday evening.  Plus I have to  come in for a bloodwork & paperwork appt on Friday. So I guess I know GV will be here in a week & a half at the latest!

I'm not sure how I feel about induction. I know it can work but everyone I know who's been induced has ended up with a c-section.  I really don't want a c-section.

I was induced with both J & B. No C-Section. So excited to meet GV!!!!!! AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At least it's an induction at 41 weeks. Most of the inductions that I have seen lately that ended in c-sections were 40 weeks. Giving your body as much time on it's own as safe probably helps.

Try to stay relaxed and loose. I carried a little piece of fabric with lavender essential oil everywhere with me the last week (lavender is suppose to help relax). I don't know if it helped, but at least it smelled nice.

That's interesting-- my final eviction day for my twins is the 16th! Of course, I'll be having a c-birth regardless, because they are both breech-- no chance at all of a vaginal birth. But it's okay with me because I've been expecting that all along anyway.

Congrats on having a date set!
