To be or not to be.....

That is the question! I've been thinking about being induced vs. letting the baby come on her own and the more I consider the pros and cons the better I feel about being induced. You see, if I wait and have another really fast labor (like when Daniel came out within 15 minutes of arriving at the hospital and I felt completely out of control) or a baby in the middle of the night (like Emma) and have to wake someone up in the wee hours, I might not enjoy the experience as much as if I were induced. I like the idea of having everything planned ahead of time and being in a controlled situation. I've never had a baby early, and unless she decides to come early on her own, I'm thinking October 27th is the day! I had an appointment today and everything is moving along nicely and so I went ahead and signed up for the 27th- also because thats the day the Dr. I really like is delivering babies! So that means less than three weeks until we get to have this sweet baby join our family. I'm so excited!

Well, I certainly liked being induced. I like napping while I'm waiting for the baby.

I think having a "plan" is fabulous - that's what I have done with my last two, and the countdown is really fun! Hope all goes well! XOXO
