Apparently there is some rush to get babies out before the end of the year... something about a tax credit... haha! In our state, it's illegal to induce (without emergency medical necessity) before 39 weeks. She wasn't 39 weeks until today, so even though yesterday was open, she couldn't take the appointment, and today and tomorrow already had 8 inductions each, so the induction will be on Thursday.
However, if you remember, this is her third child, and she was four cm dilated last week... a good friend, Sarah at The Crazy Baby Mama posted the perfect comment on my facebook this morning...
"I'm sure she's a lovely person, but your birth mama's cervix is starting to piss me off."
Serioulsy perfect... we also found out today that last night she had 'two hours of heavy contractions' (her words)... how is this baby still inside!
So... enough with the baby stuff (or lack of baby stuff) going on.
I woke up to this as I walked into my kitchen this morning.
