No, I'm only 38 weeks, they aren't interested in inducing me at this point. Just letting nature take its course. I go in this afternoon for a regularly scheduled doctor appointment, will see if anything is going on down there but I'm doubtful.

And of course, now my 4-year-old has developed a cough that keeps him up at night (but he is fine during the day when he's upright, go figure), so I'm actually kind of hoping I don't move along this weekend. I'd hate to inflict his coughing all night on my poor parents, who will be watching him while I'm at the hospital.

I guess it's probably a good sign emotion-wise that I'm now at a point where I can feel frustrated at the slow progress towards labor. I really expected that right up to the end I'd be scared of going too soon, given how terrified I've been of having another preemie...perhaps there is a little healing going on with this pregnancy after all?
