Just got a phone call from my OB's office. My OB and rhe other OB that has examined me the last three times are offering me the option of scheduling an induction Monday morning on my due date.
I'm on the verge of crying because I feel like I am giving in. But I am so so uncomfortable. I haven't gotten a decent nights sleep in months. All week I've been waking up every 2 hrs with cramping. Last night I got 3hrs straight and I was super excited. Sleeping is so uncomfortable. My hips are killing me I can barely walk. There is so much pressure in my lower body today I don't even want to walk.
My husband thinks I'll likely go before Monday anyway. I reluctantly started maternity leave already. So I don't want to waste my time sitting at home if I can be spending it wih my baby.
I know I shouldn't complain because I've had it so so easy thus far. There are sooo many ladies who have had real issues to worry about!
Thanks for listening to me. At the very least we know we will meet her by Monday! And it will be the best 30th birthday present I can ask for.

You're almost there! I am right there with you and I know how you feel, as I am also being induced on Monday if I don't go into labor by then. Get that much needed rest!

I didn't even make it til week 39 and I was a miserable mess too, I know how you feel. Good luck and I hope it goes well!
Be sure to take a bump pic before you go in, I didn't (mine is from maybe 5 days before I gave birth?) and wish I did.

Your baby may come out before then! You never know! Either way, you're bringing a baby into this world and will finally get to meet her. How exciting is that? Can't wait to hear you birth story!

that's exciting! yesterday i scheduled my induction for monday the 30th as well...my doctor just called and said they messed up and put me in for the 7th instead, so now i'm scheduled for the 2nd of may unless i go in labor myself(unlikely) or if 2 people go into labor over the weekend and they can fit me in monday. it would have been ironic if we would have had those babies on the same day! :o)
good luck and hope everything goes great!! :o)

You're not giving in! There's no right or wrong way to have a baby- you have to do what is best for you and your LO. So excited for you that the end is near and you can meet your LO soon!

We're definitely excited to finally meet her and have a "date".
Nothing special planned. My husband is afraid of my water breaking outside -haha- so we're staying put. And my mom is arriving tomorrow night so we (read he) has to clean out the spare room and bring a lot of stuff over to the new house.

Oh how exciting! You've done great and deserve to not be miserable anymore and to have your sweet baby!
Don't feel bad about an induction, sometimes it's just the best thing to do.

Don't feel like you're giving up at all! By the time my doctor offerred me the option of induction, I was totally ready to take him up on it; pregnancy is hard!
Enjoy these last couple days, sweetie. You're going to be a momma very soon!
