Weel, I'm personally hoping you go into natural labour, but really I think sentimental dates may not be so good. It sounds nice, but it can be a double-edged sword. Scheduling for the next Monday sounds good. That way if you need to be in the hospital longer than a few days, you really will have full staff. I'm surprised they don't have the lactation consultant there 7 days a week.


This reminds me a lot of scheduling my c-section. I wanted an even date and did numerology on my options and fretted and someone wanted it on my MIL's birthday and...

Of course it totally ended up going a different way and I had an emergency c-section a week and a half prior to that. Of course you already know the uncertain nature of baby things.

But you are SO CLOSE! How exciting. You are HAVING A BABY VERY SOON! I am thrilled!

Sorry about the hassles. My OB office was better about callbacks and whatnot, too. I mean, and you even have a cellphone--how hard can it be to get in touch?
