decided not to get induced....

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Doctor offered to induce me today, 5 days before my due date. I have extremely fast labors and live a good distance from the hospital... But I changed my mind, and canceled this morning. I would have literally been at the hospital right now in labor, maybe even about to hold my baby.. it would be so wonderful to see his face.
BUT, I decided that since this is probably my last baby, I want to enjoy the excitement of him coming on his own. I am nervous, hopefully it's soon and not in the middle of the night when I can't get a hold of anyone.. haha Like I said earlier my labors are fast.. and my husband is in the military so we have no family near by to help with the other kids. I have a few friends that offered, but doubt they are literally waiting by their phone for me haha...
So now is the waiting game... Hoping baby decides to come soon. I have a son who was born on May 6th, my middle child, and he is very sensitive and I really don't want to be in the hospital on his birthday or have him have to share is birthday. hoping baby decides to come in the next few days!!!
Come on baby!!

    his day is near and i know you guys are very excited! That's awesome that you could cancel your induced date. Because I was high risk I guess I was forced to be induced Jan. 3rd. Come on baby!!!!!! Make mommy and brother happy =) I really hope new baby has his own bday so your middle baby can be happy about still being extra special with his own bday. I'll just on you later! =)

    This is an exciting time - I agree that waiting for it to come naturally is the best decision. Your friends WILL be there for you - while not literally waiting by their phones, someone will be there when you need them. When I had my second son, I had people lined up and then had to go to the hospital at 11 p.m. on a Sunday night and ended up calling a single guy who arrived 30 minutes later on his motorcycle. He took care of son number one. I was also put on the spot by a neighbor one Sunday afternoon when a neighbor came over and their plans had fallen through on the sitter for THEIR kids, and I ended up watching her 3 kids that I had not ever even met before. Stuff happens and people step up and take care and show their best side when the NEED is there. You will be fine and your decision will be okay too. God knows what and who you will need and they will be there for you.
