6 Days or Less

Although I'm not due until May 16, 10 days from now, my doctor wants to induce labor on May 12 if I haven't started on my own by then. Because of the gest. diabetes, she doesn't want me to go past 40 weeks, and I'm guessing she most often schedules inductions on Mondays. So, somewhere between now and 6 days from now, Ben will be arriving.

It's nice to have a definite end date in sight, and one that's only 6 days away. On the other hand, I would much prefer to go into labor without drugs, but I'm going to have to wait and see what happens.

It's just exciting to know that I'm truly in the last week (last full 5 days now, really) of this pregnancy and that we'll be meeting our son very soon!
