Just got home from my 37-week doctor appointment. I am still down 2 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight and the baby was measuring good. My doctor is going to be out of town from June 1st to the 5th (the 5th is my due date) so he said that if the baby doesn't come on his own in the next 2 weeks he will be willing to do an induction at

Glad your appointment went well. Sorry your doctor will be out of town during your due date and that you will have to have an induction. I hope everything works out for the best for you. Maybe you'll go in labor on your own before then.

Glad for the good appt, but hope you can avoid the induction and just go into labor in time! Good luck!

I'm glad everything looked good at your appointment. It stinks that your OB will be out of town around your due date, but I hope you can avoid an induction. Are you dilated at all right now?

I was induced with DS after 40 weeks, the Cytotec was given around 8pm on a Sunday and he was born around 2:30pm the next day (I was only in actual labor for 8 hours) so my body handled the first one pretty well.

2 weeks ago when the doctor checked me I wasn't dilated at all or anything but he will check again next week. I've been having a few contractions here and there but nothing regular or painful yet.
