Phone rang yesterday and it was the doctors office. I almost let it go to voicemail because I assumed it was just the automated confirmation of my biweekly appointment and I have dr/NST coming up on Thursday. It seemed early so I picked it up. It was the scheduler who wanted to let me know that they went ahead and scheduled my induction for 7am on 11/27. I said, Oh okay. Then she said okay, bye. Okay.....

I called back in a stupor because I didn't ask any questions. I knew that the plan was to induce by 39 weeks and that's 39 weeks. They told me who was on call (I'm okay with the dr that is on call she's probably my 4th favorite out of the ones that I've met but I do like her. I'm worried that it is the flaky midwife but will deal).

I still have my 2 NSTs a week to make sure my placenta is holding out, meds are still regulating my bp and GD is under control. They said he could still decide to come earlier, otherwise we are all set for the day before Thanksgiving.

Told the family last night and we scheduled Fakesgiving for Sunday 11/24. Who wants to bet little man will come on Fakesgiving?????

I had my daughter the day before Thanksgiving. That's a fun day to have a baby. There was NO ONE in the hospital. I think all the docs made sure to induce their patients a couple days earlier. I was the only one there, so if I needed anything they were on the ball.

Good luck!! What's the reason they are inducing you, if you don't mind me asking? I can't keep everyone's details straight very well.

Oh, I've got the big 3 going for me!

1. I'm old (43)
2. Pre-existing hypertension treated with Labetalol
3 Gestational diabetes.

Because of these 3 they believe my placenta has a "shelf life" and could give out. they want to induce by 39 but continue to monitor to make sure baby is thriving and no threats of pre-e and/or him getting too big with GD. I've been able to maintain my sugar levels with being very strict on the meal plan and taking insulin. My BP has also been great throughout maintained with the medication.

Its good to at least have a date. My birthday is the 26th...and I was born the day before Thanksgiving in '86! Hopefully baby holds out and doesn't decide to come on Fakesgiving but then again, you'd be able to celebrate actual Turkey day!

Oh how exciting. I bet it comes from all the hustle and bustle from fakesgiving too. I'm 39 weeks on Thanksgiving as well... so if they keep pushing for this c/s then mine will be soon as well!

Oh, Tricia!!! That's awesome I've got a few of those issues (history of pre-e, but nothing showing now, GD now, but controlled with diet alone--and minimal changes to say the least--, and I'm 41) and in the back of my mind I wonder if they'll mention induction due to the research of placenta issues and still birth after 39 weeks for gals in our position. Honestly, I don't think I'd mind, if it were all medically related and I looked like my body was ready to go!

No BH or regular contractions yet and cervix is closed. Don't know if now that we are scheduled I will relax and things will start happening. Kinda hoping cause I've always wanted that, "Uh, we gotta go he's coming" moment.

How exciting! I so want a thanksgiving baby! I really don't want to be induced, but I am concerned about my placenta because of the issues I had with bleeding half way through. I plan to ask the doctor tomorrow so we'll see We're all getting so close!!!

I've always wanted that moment too, and I'm headed into induction #5. lol. But I can tell you from experience, it makes the couple days before really interesting. My favorite special family times have been the day before being induced and everything goes crazy and changes.
