Dr says baby is really really low & really big. Lol I told him to quit reminding me! He says he thinks I will go into labor on my own soon. I sure hope so!

We discussed the membrane strip and I said no, I told him I was afraid of my water breaking before it's really ready and he kinda looked at me like I had two heads all the sudden. lol he said if my water breaks I Will go into labor. But I know that that isn't always the case. I know that if the water is broken before your body is truly ready your labor could stall, you'd need pit, and possibly a c-section. I told him I'd rather just wait it out, as uncomfortable and ready to meet this baby as I am then have to worry about that. He didn't really seem to get it, but that's okay, he's going with what I want and being really really supportive so thats awesome. He also agreed to the Gel induction but he cannot induce me until 41 weeks unless there is a problem...apparently a huge baby isn't an issue? Oh well, lots of walking/sex/bouncing/stair climbing and hopefully this baby will decide to come on its own soon!

I think you made a good decision. My friend just had a baby almost a month ago. She had her membranes stripped and her water broke a few hours later. Then she ended up being in labor for 31 hours because the baby just didn't seem ready to come out.
