Can I Get A Break?

Seriously?! I feel like I'm being crapped on! Okay, so things aren't that bad. I'll blame being hormonal. It just seems like I can't get a break to save my life (and, no, I'm not going to die if I don't get a break-at least I don't think).

Sean started his training today. He has the best trainer (yay!), so he is optimistic that he will pass and be taken in. The downside? Training is two weeks! The worse part? If I go into labor, and he is already at training, it will be almost impossible for him to take off and get me (or meet me) at the hospital. Of course, if I go into labor before he leaves for the day, then they are okay with him not being there (or so they say). So I'm hoping this little man stays put for two weeks, comes on a weekend, labor starts at night or early morning, or I end up with an induction. Fingers crossed!

So I have to come up with even more contingency plans. My mom insists she will be at the hospital with me. I'd rather poke my own eyes out! My SIL volunteered to be my labor buddy, so I may take her up on that! I asked my mom if she would come up later this week do I could show her where all of Alice's things are (in case she has to come get her or stay with her here) and she gave me some story about not knowing if she should drive her car all the way up here. Blah, blah, blah! How does she expect to help out once he is here? She is the one all excited about helping out. Does she think I'm going to pack up the car with both kiddies and drive to her? She is insane! I understand if she doesn't want to help or drive up here. In fact, it may be less stressful doing things by myself than with her around! I reserve the right to retract that statement.

I have a feeling my ob will be discussing induction on Thursday. Which means she'll probably want to do it that following Thursday. I know I'm six days behind what they have, so I can refuse an induction, right? They can't make me. As long as he is doing well, right?

I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. I'll just explain what is going on. Who knows, this little man may have another plan in mind! He is getting so low that I'm having trouble walking. It is super painful.

Oh, and thank you all for your kind words and thoughts about Gretchen! I am still bummed, but I'm doing better.

Moms. Anyway, my water broke with my son and he was 16 days early. With my daughter, I just went into labor 6 days early. It was so much better with my son, because I was totally not expecting it and was not so anxious yet.

That being said, I'd totally get an induction. :)

You can always refuse any medical procedure. But maybe you can get them to schedule you on a day that will be convenient? Because I am against unnecessary induction, but there are certainly times when I think it is warranted and having Sean be able to be there is certainly one of those times.

I'll be crossing everything that Sean will be able to be there.
