Hi ladies - my doctor called earlier this afternoon with an official induction date of Monday the 23rd!!! That means my mom (who is having her kidney removed Thursday due to recently diagnosed renal cancer) will get to be there for the delivery (and hopefully getting to see her grandchild before she goes into major surgery will be a good incentive to get her through what I'm sure will be a painful recovery later in the week!)
The other really great thing is that the doctor on call during the day Monday is probably my favorite doctor in the practice and the doctor on call Monday night is fantastic, too (all of the doctors are ok - there are just some I like better than others in the group). I'm nervous (especially with all I've heard lately about inductions), but I am hopeful that baby will either come on its own before then or that I will be further dilated and/or thinned out by Monday morning to make the process a bit easier (I'm currently 1cm 50% effaced at station -2)...
At any rate, our baby will definitely be here by Tuesday! Holy cow!!!!!
Our C-section is scheduled for Feb 16th! Then we'll know whether Baby Bennett is a BOY or a GIRL!!!

Woohoo! Congrats on the date! As worrisome as inductions are (I'm worried that my cervix won't be doing anything by the time mine comes around), if you are dilated/effaced at all it's much better than still being closed and such.
Good luck sweetie! Watch you arrive 2 hours early in active labor!
