Everything went well today! The NST was good, and the fluid was at 11, which is the highest measurement I've ever seen for me at the end of a pregnancy.
My OB called tonight, and we scheduled an induction for next Wednesday night, which will be 42w1d. She isn't on call next week, but her office partner is (it's a really large practice with about 25 OBs in offices all around the city, so you never know who you're going to get), and she is willing to induce instead of just automatically doing a c-section. I'm glad she was able to get someone on board with her way of thinking. I asked about the foley bulb, but I was 3cm at today's appointment, and she said it really wouldn't pay. My next choice is AROM, and then possibly low-dose pitocin if that doesn't do anything. I normally wouldn't want AROM because of that whole ticking clock thing, but this would be a "now or never" induction, you know? Baby will have to come out then. I have two more NSTs before then, though -- one on Saturday in triage at the hospital, and one on Monday back in my doctor's office. I do have to say that I am really happy with what we discussed today; I really do think my OB is pretty cool for an OB, even though I wish I could be seeing a midwife instead!
Anyway, I had my membranes stripped today, and I am going for another round of acupuncture tomorrow. I do pray that today's talk is just "what ifs" and that I'll go into labor on my own before then.
