Doctor Update

I got back from my doctor's appointment not too long ago, and this is what he said. I'm still 1 cm dialated, 0 station and I'm now 80% effaced instead of 70%. Whooptie doo! I guess I should be glad for even a little progress, but I'm really just annoyed by the almost lack of. He also told me that if I haven't gone into labor by my next appointment on the 29th, then they will schedule an induction for 1-2 weeks later. They're going by their due date, which is December 29. This is based on what Gizmo measured at my first ultrasound. If you go by charting, then it's December 19 and I'm almost a week overdue.

I'm beginning to get, ok, I AM really impatient for his arrival, but I really would like to go into labor on my own. As of now, there's no physical reason to induce until 42 weeks, but that's January 12th going by their date! I don't know if I can wait that long!

I'm thinking that what I will do is let them schedule an induction for 41 weeks, and then let them do a membrane sweep on the 29th in the hopes that I go into labor on my own. Gizmo, please stop taking your sweet time!
