Little miss Peyton is due on July 1st but we're inducing on June 28th, for personal and logical reasons, and also the hospital's schedule. We really wanted my parents to be able to come out for her birth, especially since my mom flew out the next day after I miscarried last summer, and they're in California. Also, because of the EDD, we didn't want to have to risk driving from Edmond to Deaconess on July 4th (have you seen some of the driving that happens on those roads?). Then, the hospital only schedules inductions for Mondays and Tuesdays, well the 29th was taken, so we took the 28th because otherwise it'd be July 5th, and that defeats the whole not driving on the 4th thing.
Everyone that finds out we're inducing tells us about how we're endangering our baby, and it's so horrible of us. My MIL was totally fine with it until she found out she won't be allowed in the room AT ALL until after the baby's out, fed, cleaned up, and rested a bit. Then, she called DH with all these "risks" that come with inducing. With her, it's a case of jealousy of my mom being allowed in for labor and not her, but why does everybody else think we're so horrible for inducing 3 days before she's due anyway?!?!?!
Again, sorry for it being so long!
