Since my Dr wasnt on call this weekend, I had to call the hospital and leave a message with the very friendly nurse. She found the dr, told him I wouldnt bethere tomorrow and all is good! I do have to meet with him tomorrow to discuss exactly what I want...which I feel like weve been over already, but ill just have to remind him. Im so relieved. Ill update tomorrow! Thanks for everyones encouragement and comments.
So this is #3 for DH and I. I do not get epidurals and I do not want to be induced at all. The fluid around the baby is perfect, my BP is perfect and there is no reason to induce me except the Dr keeps telling me that its not safe to go past 41 weeks. If he's inducing me Monday, that makes it 40 weeks and 6 days to be correct. He wants me at the hospital at 5 am...which is crazy early for a person like me, then he will break my water and give me 6 hours from then until he starts pitocin. Im furious btw. He is refusing to let m go any longer than 6 hours. Ive had 2 perfect deliveries before and I dont see a medical reason for being induced other than Monday is the day he is at the hospital doing surgeries and other unnecessary inductions. Hes noton call this weekend but DH and I are going to try to track him down at the hospital before Monday and tell him we cant let this happen unless we have a valid reason. Have any of you ladies gone for something similar like having your water broken before pitocin is started? Did you show enough progress to not have to start the pitocin? This being #3 for me, I assume it will be fast like the other 2 were. Either way, keep your fingers crossed or pray that things can go as naturally as possible for baby and I.
