so, long story short, my husband is in new mexico, i am in vegas. our due date is the fourteenth. he desperately wants to be here for the baby, as it's our first, which is not a problem. he can get leave. but if the baby isn't born by the fourteenth, he has to go back, no more leave.
now here's the rub. i was wondering if it is completely selfish of me to want to be induced if i go past the fourteenth. yes this is my first, and i understand that usually they go later. but my due date is pretty spot on. my husband was stationed in texas, came home for five days, and two weeks after he left, SURPRISE! hubby left a christmas gift, and the only day i was well enough to do the deed was the first night he was there... i was sick and very medicated the rest of the time, and that one day just so happened to be the day i would have been ovulating, or withing a day of it.
so is it selfish? i plan on talking to my ob today, but i really don't see the harm in it. going past the fourteenth, i would be going over forty anyways. or at least just under it. opinions?
