The due date has arrived! Eliza has not.

by Amy M.

Quick update:

Eliza hasn’t received her eviction notice; she seems content to lounge in the womb indefinitely.  At our appointment today, the doctor recommended that we give her another week to debut voluntarily.  If she still hasn’t arrived, an induction will be scheduled.  I’m happy to have a definitive end date because it feels like I’ve been pregnant forever, but induction really freaks me out!  I mean–you’re not even supposed to eat lunchmeat while pregnant, so how are those powerful chemicals safe?

I realize I’m being paranoid.  Inductions happen all the time, and there’s really nothing to fear.  Nevertheless, I do hope she comes on her own!  If not, I’m comforted by the fact that I’ll be holding her (for sure) next week!
