first off, both my kids were induced (1 simply by breaking my water and waiting for cntrx to start) at 42 weeks because i was in the same situation where i wouldve had to go the ob/hospital route if i went past 42 weeks... both babies were (and are) perfectly healthy and wonderful.
now, honey, you have got to relax and DO NOT answer your phone. my MIL knows better then to say that kind of stuff to me (amd I know better then to tell her were planning a homebirth
), but man, if she pulled that...oh, i cant even begin to tell you the horrbile things that would go on here!
: you do not need to make HER feel better, you are the pregnant woman, you are the one delivery the baby and the baby is yours! you know what is best and she has NO right to pull scare tactics on you! Im sorry, im going off a bit, i just cant believe shes pulling all that on you! calm down, get a massage, go to an acupuncturist, have a glass of wine and dont answer the phone. hang in there!!
