Not Yet

My doctor told me today that he just doesn't feel comfortable inducing me tomorrow.  There are no changes from last week (didn't you hear that too AJ?) and at this point he said it would lead to a long day of labor and an increased risk of a c-section.  I don't want to do something that isn't in the best interest of the baby or my body.  
He rescheduled me for next Wednesday.  I just really want him there for the delivery. Obviously if it happens naturally and he isn't there, I will survive.  He did say that for all we know, I will go into labor naturally tomorrow. These babies have a mind of their own!
There are so many things that I need to do still:  count Homecoming final ballots, get ready for coronation next Monday, make sure the programs are made, my long term sub, and yes, things that pertain to my own family!

I am waiting patiently to hear the news of the new arrival. Try to take it easy (is that possible with three other kids?) We have plenty of car seat covers waiting for the new little Stafford. Can't wait to hear!!!

There is no taking it easy Kris, BUT it actually is fine b/c you don't have time to obsess over it all then...
Thanks for the thoughts. My mom and sister are excited to go to Pout to get me a couple baby gifts!

Your doctor sounds really WISE and I can see why you would want to be sure he is there. I'll start crossing fingers AND toes and keep thinking the good thoughts too! Thanks for the update!

OK, I'm going to place my bets on this weekend. Saturday night baby!

Thank God you have a wise and patient doctor! I'm sure it was disappointing at first to hear what he said. You are also wise for taking it all in stride! We can't wait for the new arrival!

I know you don't want to hear this but I would love it if you had your baby next Wednesday. October 1st birthday's are the best!!!!

I'm excited to hear all about the newest Stafford. Keep me posted.
