I just wanted to offer my support!  I can't imagine having to decide.  I'm a huge believer in trusting your instinct!  Good luck this afternoon!

Have I mentioned how much you have all meant to me through this nightmare of a pregnancy?

I seriously don't think I could have made it through without you all! Everyone has been super helpful and supportive!

 

Today actually went quite well. He doesn't disagree with me, and he talked me into waiting one more week so that HE can be the one who does the induction, and not a doctor I don't know. The only downside to that, is that I would be induced on my biological mother's birthday. 

 

So now I have to find a way to tell my family this, and I know it's going to cause trouble. She was a very hurtful and abusive woman to everyone, and I'm terrified of their reactions if he is born on that day. DH and I are going to sit together tonight and come up with an email that we're comfortable sending out, letting people know how we feel and that any negative or hurtful comments had either better be kept to themselves or risk us not talking to them for a while. 

 

Even before this was an issue, comments got thrown around that he'd be a devil child if he has her birthday. Things like that can NOT happen if he really does have her birthday. I will NOT handle that well. (I'm already not handling it well...)

 

So yep. He's still doing okay, and we're going to keep getting my membranes stripped today and Tuesday just to see if we can't kick start this labor. Meanwhile, I will keep having the biophysical profiles for my own peace of mind.

If he is born on that day, hopefully he will make it a *new* better day, and everyone will have a new association, and not the bad one.  ((Hugs))

Oh for heaven's sake. I'm so sorry your family is being so ridiculous.

 

I have not one but TWO friends who share Hitler's birthday, and both are extremely successful, wonderful people. If Hitler can't ruin a birthdate, no one can!

 

Glad to hear your doctor's visit went well... sounds like it's the best visit you've had in a while (a small victory, I suppose). Hang in there lady!

I must confess, I actually burst out laughing at your comment KM. Seriously nearly peed myself. :P

Thank you :)
