I went in for my 40 week appointment today. Right before I got there, my midwife got called to the hospital for a birth, so I never saw the midwife. I only saw the nurse. We did the NST (passed with flying colors), standard urine test, blood pressure check and weight check. The midwife still wasn't back yet, so the nurse told me she would have the midwife call me first thing in the morning. If the midwife feels the need to SEE me, I will go back in again tomorrow, but I had already decided that I didn't want her to do an internal check because it just makes me 2nd guess as to when this baby is coming. (That is of course unless she has some other need to check me.) I do need to talk to her tomorrow though because we have to officially schedule induction for next week. I'm not exactly sure how that process works for the hospital I will be delivering at, so I have several questions for her regarding that. Other than that, I just get the sinking suspicion that unless my water breaks before scheduled induction, I will be getting induced. I just don't feel like my body knows how to start contractions on its own. (Maybe I'm just being crazy!) Anyway, I still don't feel DESPERATE yet to get her out, but I sure am anxious. I just keep taking it one more day at a time.

wow sorry you didn't get to see your midwife, and hopefully your labor will start on it's own, but otherwise hopefully they will get your induction scheduled and then you'll have a set date! you are far more patient than me, when i was like 38 weeks I had already become so very impatient to get Caleb out, but it's great that your not that's the better way to be.

Water breaking labor vibes coming your way!

IF they induce you ask them for Cervadil NOT Cytotec. Cervadil is FDA approved... Cytotec is not and from everything I read is nasty stuff

I can't wait to see baby pics soon! Easy labor water breaking vibes going your way.....

Sucks that you didn't see your midwife!! I hope she can answer your questions when you see her and that you don't need to be induced!

Sorry you did not get to see your midwife, but it sounds like everything is still going ok. I'm sending you labor vibes your way. I hope that they don't have to induce you and that you will go into labor on your own, have you tried running or having sex?
