He did say that second pregnancies, the woman isn’t usually engaged until well into labor.
If I don’t have the baby by next Tuesday, he ordered an ultrasound to make sure I have enough amniotic fluid.

Well, and it is a mixed blessing, isn't it - when you've had preeclampsia before (I have as well). You can't believe that you've actually made it to 40 weeks - and beyond! It seems almost ungrateful to complain to make it that far without well, almost dying ... no NICU baby ... no stressful induction before your body is ready ... but still, it's sort of like Nature making sure you REALLY appreciate it ... sorta rubbing it in, no?
