I had my doctors appointment today and I saw another doctor. He may be the best doctor in the world at the moment because he said yes.
What did he say yes to you might ask....well, he said yes to a scheduled induction. I went into my very first appointment knowing that my husband would not be here for the birth of this child and wanting to have the support of family with me if at all possible. I saw the same woman the past four appointments and brought it up each time and each time she said no. She would only induce me at week 41 1/2 which would put me at May 5. That's Carter's birthday, I don't need two child with the same birthday but more importantly I would have to find someone to watch my boys for 48hours plus labor. I would have to find someone to come into the labor room with me to capture those first few moments of life. Who was I going to ask to do all this. How was I going to relax not knowing if my boys were behaving or driving someone else crazy becasue as much as I would like to think they are angels they are NOT.
Bryson and Carter were both induced so I didn't see the reason why this one couldn't be a scheduled induction. I would be able to have my family here. My kids would be taken care of and I would be able to focus on this brand new child that would need lots of attention.
Today..today was a good day. The doctor asked me what my number one reason was and I told him because my husband won't be here and it would be nice to have someone here that loves me and would support me. He said that sounds like a good enough reason. So ladies and gentleman, I have a date, and I couldn't be more excited and relieved at the same time.
