So I went for my 34 wk apt. today. The dr. asked if I'd made it to the pre-natal classes, which I had not. There's another set in January, with the last class on the 25th. I'm due the 20th. He said I could go to that set if I wanted, but I probably wouldn't make the last one. I mentally chuckled, but whatever. (My mom has 12 brothers and sisters. Of them, only one had her baby "on time." And she was a sister-in-law who smoked heavily. ALL the others went at least two weeks over due. My grandma, the one with 13 kids, went anywhere from 2-9 wks over due with all her kids. At first the dr. said she must be figuring wrong, but finally admitted that no one figures wrong 13 times. We just take a while to cook our babies!)
Anyway, the doc then proceeded to assure me that I will definately have the baby before the end of January, because HE has a CONFERENCE in Texas at the end of Jan/first of Feb.
So....let me get this straight. You are willing and prepared to induce me w/i a week of my due date because you have a CONFERENCE?
He said we'd discuss it in greater detail at the next apt. You're damn right we will. I'm not open to even CONSIDERING induction until I'm 2 wks over, and even then, you better have a pretty compelling reason (ie, the baby is in danger) to induce me.
I just want reassurance: I'm not over-reacting to this, am I?
My Ryan wonders why I want to have my next kid at home...
