With every single one I felt.... Grateful!!!! By that time I was so completely done with being pregnant.. feeling like complete crap and throwing up everyday for 9 months really gets to ya Plus by the time Aly was due, I was so worried about what we were going to do with the boys if I went into labor on my own. I did NOT want them in the delivery room during that time especially because Noah was only 2 1/2 years old and Nicky was only 14 months. The closest that anyone who could watch them was was 3 hours from our house and 4 hours from the hospital. So I liked being able to plan for someone to be with the boys (even if they did end up bringing them to the hospital).

Many Many Thanks to GraysMama (Chelsea) for my AMAZING Siggy!!!

I was asked to be induced, but when the doctor actually handed me my induction paper, I felt anxious.

When my OB told me they always induce GD pt's at 38 weeks, the first thing out of my mouth was, "Like he!! I am."

I spoke my words, and put my foot down and told them I would not be consenting to an induction at no 38 or even 40 weeks just because I have gestational diabetes... After that appointment was I was told I would be induced, needless to say the relationship with my OB was tainted and the following appointments were not so friendly...

But DD had other plans and came at 38 weeks on her own...

*5 weeks * 6/22/13

I was so completely nervous and freaking out. I totally didn't expect it and didn't expect to have a baby for at least 3 or more weeks. It was scary, but had to be done.

Thank you Tasha_Mae for my beautiful siggy!

Excited because I asked to be induced.

Normally my with my OB if you are having an excellent pregnancy like I was with both my girls with no medical need to induce they will not schedule an induction until 42-43 weeks.

But where I was 6 hours away from home and was in town staying at the bed and breakfast since 37 weeks. He done a "financial induction" at 40 weeks.

Nervous, but not surprised. My water bag broke before labor began, so I just thought of it as normal procedure.

I was angry as hell!
I had not been told that it is standard procedure to induce women with my risk factors until I was about 20-25 weeks. I was adamant that they would not be inducing me, period. I thought that the only reason that they wanted to induce me was for convenience on their part. It was not until I talked to my pulmonologist and he explained why I should be induced that I calmed down about the whole thing.

I felt panicked. Like you know when something bad, unexpected happens and you get the news...and you have this "oh my god" feeling in your chest/heart that just seizes up? I felt like that. If that makes any sense. Then my mind was racing..and I was like "oh my god I'm going to have a baby I'm not ready yet". I told the doc I had to go home first and get my stuff together (I hadn't even gotten a bag packed yet..I thought I had another 2 weeks at least). I was worried she wouldn't let me go at least get my stuff because my BP was sooo high. But she did. Then as I was driving, I called my DH and told him..and I was crying and so scared! Which is weird because both my dh and I had a premonition before my appointment that I'd be checking in later that night .. we even went out for a huge lunch, "just in case"...cuz I told him how they like to starve you when you go in the hospital.

I was upset because I really did not want to be induced. I had planned to have a natural birth. I managed to get the induction pushed out to 41 weeks hoping she would come on her own, but she just wouldn't. I have to say though that the induction went perfectly. I still do not want to have one the next time around, but at least I know it's not always like all the horror stories I had heard.
