So I get risked out of the birth center once I hit 42 weeks. I still feel great, and fluid levels/NST were great. I'm personally not in a hurry as long as baby is fine, but I am scheduled to start getting induced Sunday night, unless I can talk the center into allowing me just one more day.
I am pondering all the "what ifs," and in the meanwhile have been doing everything I can possibly think of to coax this little guy out. Tomorrow I'm getting acupuncture, the next day I'll get a membrane sweep, and the day after that they will attempt to induce me via breast pump and castor oil. If after all that I'm not laboring it will be a hospital induction . I will have to fight them NOT to use Cytotec, since that is "the standard" for this procedure.
I am trying to make the best of all of this. I have a great doula, but all the positives simply pale away when I realize I may have to birth at the hospital. The best I am holding onto right now is my cervix has moved anterior and is 80% effaced, which may still not mean much. Hopefully my worries will be for nothing and LO will be ready to come soon.
At least I do feel a little better posting my concerns, I'm really thankful for having MDC right now
