Weekly Appointments

I started my weekly doctors appointments today. I should have started last week, but I had the stomach flu. Anways... We found out that I'm dialated a little over a 2. Baby Emmett has turned and is head down. All good news! I asked my doctor about inducing me early. He said he has no problem using potocin with a V-BAC. He would just prefer that my cervix be riper. So we shall find out next week.
With me working, we had hoped that we would be able to have a "schedule" in plan for when Baby Emmett will come. With it just being me and one other person at the office, I wanted to be able to give her enough time to get someone to fill my position while I'm gone. I don't like having to put work in the dark like this. My job is very easy and I could work right up to the day I deliver, but I don't want to force my manager and my "replacement" to change their plans or not be able to make any plans, cause they are waiting for me. And I don't want to start taking time off and not go into labor for a week, therefore loosing money that I could have made and loosing some of my time off and have to go back into work sooner. I know Baby Emmett will come when the time is right and that the Lord knows what is best. I have no problem with that, don't get me wrong. I'm just whining. So we shall just have to wait and see what happens. Maybe my cervix will be ripe enough at my next appointment and we can set a date and maybe Emmett will come on his own in the next week. Who knows, only the Lord, in whom I trust.

Here's hoping he makes his grand entrace ASAP! I'm so glad to hear that he's turned and you can do the V-BAC like you wanted.
