Still no sign of labor. Met with the doctor today, had another biophysical profile, talked about induction. I've agreed to be induced on Friday (41w4d) because my doctors believe, and I actually agree based on my own reading of the current research, that it's best for the baby.

But that doesn't mean I have to like it.

Here's hoping I go into labor today or tomorrow and don't have to be induced!

wow - i have the same due date as you and have yet to have my post date testing... i really really really dont want an induction and a hospital birth!! i will be sending you vibes to go into labor tonight!! hopefully we both will!!!!!

i went and had acupuncture this morning and almost passed out when she got all the needles in - i dont think she was really able to push them in as far as she needed to, so im not sure it was effective. i was really hoping that would do the trick!

good luck

All this angst about induction was apparently productive -- I had my first labor contraction about 2 hours and 15 minutes ago. Yay!
