I'm 32 weeks pregnant and measuring a week and a half ahead.... which doesn't surprise me. I'm not crazy about inductions and I don't like it when doctors do them just for the heck of it for people, but my doctor told me it might be a good idea for me. Claire was 9 pounds and recovery was not cool for me with her and he thought it might be a good idea to induce me a week early depending on how things are going in February. I'm not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to not have such a big baby only for my vagina's sake. On the other hand, I want my baby to come when he is ready. On the other hand, I would have paid someone 6 million dollars to get Claire out of me a week early. On the other hand, I LOVED the labor experience and excitement of driving to the hospital because I was in labor! On the other hand (I have 4 hands), I just want my baby to be healthy and happy and me healthy and happy. I told him that I don't really want to be induced and he said that he would do everything he could to not let that happen like strip my membranes and give this little guy a lecture or something. I guess we'll have to see how I feel in another month..... Maybe I'll have this little boy at home in a tub. Or...maybe that's not for me.
