40 Weeks!

Well no luck trying to convince the doctor to induce me!  They do what is called a "Bishops Score"  It is a number from 1-5 on these 5 areas:
  • Cervical dilation
  • Cervical effacement
  • Cervical consistency
  • Cervical position
  • Fetal station
You need to have at least an 8 to be considered "Induce-able" I scored a 5!  1 in each area, lowest possible score!  So the doctor said I can be induced Monday or I can come into the office on Monday and they can check my score again and give me another week!  If I go to the hospital on Monday and I am still a 5 the chance of a c-section is 50%!  At this point to be honest I really do not care how this baby comes out, but it is going to come out Monday, one way or another!
