When are you going to get induced????
how long will they let you go before they induce you?! I got induced bc blah blah blah... I really hope my baby decides to make an appearance soon b/c I really don't know how much more induction talk I can take. That's great that they got induced but I don't want that for me or my baby... of course they don't know I'm NOT going to the hospital, but still... blah!!! :pullhair:

Re: When are you going to get induced????
I'm sorry!...I can SOOO relate!! I too went past my EDD, and I got to the point where I didn't want to leave the house...or go on FB for that matter, because I was so sick of people asking, and telling me horror stories of their friend's cousin's daughter's co-worker who had a bad experience...:rolleyes:

Hang in there! You won't be pregnant forever, and before you know it, you will be holding your sweet newborn AT HOME, and this will all be a memory! ;)

Re: When are you going to get induced????
Thanks ladies, I really need the encouragement, I'm getting very discouraged right now. I made a post of fb saying I wouldn't be taking any more questions about where my baby is :lol: and I'm hiding so no one can message me and ask. I'm also feeling a little more sore and pressure down there so maybe she has moved down again and things will get moving tonight!! LOL Ok, prob not, but a girl can dream, right?! :)

Re: When are you going to get induced????
I know how you feel! I was nearly two weeks "late" with my last, and everyone did the same thing to me! But you know what? When Evie was born, she was covered in a thick layer of vernix. My midwife told me that some women just need to bake their babies longer, and I'm pretty positive I'm one of those women! So don't worry, your body and baby are doing what they need to do to be healthy. You won't be pregnant forever. When your LO is born, you'll think back and say "Wow, where did that 42 weeks go!?!?"

Re: When are you going to get induced????
I have been seeing that, and wanted to post some words of encouragement when you posted it, but I don't know you that well and also didn't want to start any drama on your wall. The baby will come when it's ready, but you know that. I went to 42 weeks and was lucky that no one asked me when I was being induced. Maybe it's because they know I'm a crazy homebirther. I didn't know you were homebirthing, but that's probably because I've been neglecting this section lately. Good luck! Can't wait to hear. Will you be posting on FB when you go into labor, or only after?

HUGS....stay away from the meanies that wont leave you alone ;) Including face book!....I've heard of some people changing their phone messages to say "when baby is here we'll let you know, please dont ask until then" Or similar!

Re: When are you going to get induced????
Thinking of you! I went to 42w3d with one of my pregnancies and while it was hard on me it was the absolute right thing for my son who needed a little extra baking time. :)

Re: When are you going to get induced????
Thanks ladies *big hugs* I actually won't be posting that I'm in labor on fb. I will wait until she arrives. Ha ha I know that will drive some ppl crazy, but who knows how long my labor is and I don't need any MORE added pressure. I also made another acct where I will be posting pics of my cupcake as I didn't want to on my acct. If you want that acct, pls let me know and I'll be happy to share in a PM. I'm really weird about sharing pics and even have told my mom several times that I better not see pics of my daughter or me splattered all over her fb page since there are way too many ppl on it that we don't know.

Re: When are you going to get induced????
Oh my Dave! I am SO SICK of "Where's the baby?" If I haven't updated introducing, giving stats and showing pictures of my baby, he or she is still in the womb. I will let everyone know when baby has been born. Hounding me about it is aggravating.

Other questions that drive me crazy (though admittedly, "Where's the baby?" is the worst):
"When are you going to have that baby?" (If I knew, I wouldn't have been staying prepared daily for the past two months.)
"No baby yet?" (Do you see one in my arms?)
"How long are 'they' going to let you go?" (I am the one in charge here and there is no "they".)

I am now mostly ignoring these questions and updating as I see fit.

Re: When are you going to get induced????
I was about to strangle my MIL at the end of my last pregnancy. She would ask the same questions every frickin time I saw her or talked to her on the phone?

Where is the baby? Any thing change? Any sign of labor? Has she made any movements? (What do you mean any movements?? There is a friggin small human inside my body. Of course she makes movements you big dumb A!) She brought dinner over the night before I went into labor and I ignored everyone and silently ate my chinese take out. I did NOT care if anyone thought I was being a witch. :glare:

Re: When are you going to get induced????
UGH!!! That would be so super annoying! I'm still hiding on fb b/c I just don't care to hear it. :P

Re: When are you going to get induced????
UGH! That is the WORST thing to ask a pregnant woman! I have already gotten it a few times (and I am only 22 weeks!). I have gotten either "have you scheduled your induction yet?" or "have you scheduled your c-section yet?" I get really irritated with people like that!

Sending you labor vibes, if she hasn't already made her appearance!

Re: When are you going to get induced????
*popping in, I haven't been on this board in awhile, eeps*

Each of my babies I just went later and later. My oldest was a hospital baby and was born at 40w5d. My 2nd was my 1st HBAC and he was born at 41wk and my 3rd which was my 2nd HBAC was 41w3d. By my 3rd people stopped asking because they knew our plans. My first I wasn't sure but I constantly was asked at the end. My 2nd, the induction question came up a lot. It gets very old very fast.

Good luck!

Re: When are you going to get induced????
((((hugs)))) You should say 'When baby's d*** well ready!' or write a nice crazy pregnant lady rant as a FB note ;) Maybe people would realize they should leave you alone.
I don't know why people say such dumb things to pregnant women. Don't they realize they could get injured!
