Once again I was at my doctor today to get checked out. I feel like I'm there ALL the time! The good news is that the baby is still doing great. The bad news is that she is inducing me on the 12th. She wants to induce because of the extra fluid that is around the baby, and also I have some thyroid issues that make her nervous.
So why is this bad news? I really wanted to go into labor on my own. I really wanted not to use medication. When I told my doctor this, she was understanding. She highly recommend being induced on the 12th, but said it was up to me. If I was not induced she would watch me VERY closely until I did deliver.
So as of right now I have an appointment to be induced at 8am on the 12th. However, my doctor has made it clear that at any point I can cancel the appointment, and wait for my body to do it on its own.
So what would you do? Wait for your body to kick in, or be induced?
Maybe the baby will come on its own before the 12! :-)
