  • still no baby, can oyu even believe it. its 5 days after my due date, and i have not changed at all in 4 weeks now. i went friday and still 1 cm, almost completely effaced, went to wedding, danced had fun, went back to doc monday and still the same. she scheduled a non stress test and ultra sound for thursday morning, and told me to come back to regular appointment on monday to talk about induction, are you kidding me? thats 9 days after due date. i am going crazy, have you all heard the temperature in new england this past week too, 100 degrees. my dh and i are both not working, he has his surgery planned for the 10th of July, his grandparents are coming out the 2nd of July to visit Ava, if she is here yet. they wanted to giive me family time with her, and then they could have her to thmeselves, but now i may still be in hospital. i have to go back to work the 1st of august no matter what, so now i will be going back to work with onle a 3 or 4 week old, i am miserable thinking all this. sorry to vent. i do not ahve computer at home so am checking it at my moms now, will keep you updated

  • Wow Diane, You have had it the Docs know that you have to be back August 1st?? If so they may be more inclined to induce now. August 1st is really pushing it. 6 weeks is really the minimum needed to recover just physically. I hope you can go just part time if not at all....any way out of it????

  • Ouch Diane, that's really harsh
    Can you talk to your dr again and explain your situation to her? I also really hope you can find a way to stay off work longer! You really deserve that time with your baby after everything, and as Bonnie's said, you will need time to recover physically.

  • Hang in there, like the rest of the ladies, did you tell your Dr. about your situation and having to go back so soon? Maybe they could induce earlier...I mean I am sure she is ready to come. Keep us posted and good luck with everything, can't wait to hear how it all went and what you think of your little angel.
