I had a doctor's appointment this morning. I still haven't made much of any progress. Conditions "aren't all that favorable" is what I was told. I expressed my desire to avoid a c-section if at all possible and be able to go into labor on my own. However, based on previous ultrasounds and my glucose levels, the doctors believe my best chance to deliver her naturally is to be induced (because of her possible size). She did say that Ladybug is engaged so that's a good sign I'll be able to have her naturally - thus the reason for my awful back pain this past week or so.
So I will be induced on my due date - this Thursday. I will actually go in Wednesday evening to get some kind of medicine to help conditions become, let's say, more favorable. Then, on Thursday morning, they will start pitocin.
As much as I REALLY REALLY didn't want to be induced, I just feel I need to trust in God's sovereignty in this situation. He's placed me under their care and this is what they feel is my best chance to have her naturally.
I can't believe I'll have a baby in 3 days. I'm still kind of in shock. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time.
