Mega Appointment Day

Yesterday Allan stayed home from work so that he could go with me to the many appointments we had.
With the baby coming so soon we had to squeeze in a few things right now because getting to them with a newborn won’t be fun for me.

In the morning all three kids had their dental checkups. Then later in the day Allan and I went to our dentist. Then I had my 37 week OB checkup.

It was stressful. If Allan hadn’t been there I am sure I would’ve had a nervous breakdown 😛

The only picture I took yesterday was this one at the dentist’s office. I was WAY too stressed to take more!
Allan came with me to my OB appointment since my doctor wanted to talk to me about induction. Very long story short I’m against almost everything medical about birth so no matter the reasons I would’ve said no to an induction. Allan is more of a voice or reason and can look at both options with a clearer head. lol

After talking we decided it was safer to induce for a few reasons so the plan is September 27th we’ll be going in. 10 days? Crazy.

  • 10 days!!! Good luck! While I don't have any babies, I hear you on the over-medicalization of birth. I hope your induction goes smoothly!

  • Aw, in 10 days you get to meet little Ember… how exciting!!! I was induced at 39 weeks this time around, partly due to age and partly due to the fact I had a previous c-section. I have to say though, it was kind of nice knowing, planning and preparing. I had a definite end date 🙂

    So exciting!!!

  • My middle child was induced, and it was by far my quickest and easiest labor. Can't wait to see pictures of little Ember. 10 days!! Love that new picture of Brooklyn on the sidebar.

  • I was induced all 4 times! I have to agree quick and easy labors. I never really felt pain with any of them… but I got epidurals also. Child number #1 because they thought he was going to be a BIG baby… he came out the smallest. #2 because I asked for it… no beged for it. I was miserable… by far my worst pregnancy from start to finish. #3 I wanted to wait but as soon as he asked me if I'd like an induction my mind changed. And this last one I was 39 weeks and he scheduled me to be induced. I went into labor on my own the night before I was supposed to go in. Labor didn't progress fast enough though so they still induced me.

    I am so excited and just can't wait to see the new baby! I can't believe it's been 9 months already! Sheesh! Good luck!

  • I am so excited for you guys!!! I was scheduled to be induced with Erica and ended up going into labor the night before. I hope that is what happens for you with Ember!

  • I try to avoid medical intervention as much as possible too but was still induced with each baby. Gotta do what ya gotta do as a mama, right? Good luck!
