Belly baby!

Here it is the latest belly photo :)
I look enormous!
Yesterday I had my doctor appointment, everything is going great! Baby's heart sounds good, my blood pressure is great, weight gain has been just fine. The one question I was anxious to ask was, How fast would my labor most likely be?, The answer was: "Oh you can count on it being an hour and a half." This said far to calmly for my liking. I just about lost my breakfast.
"What!, What?!" AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was just getting over this anxiety! How do I deal with that, an hour and a half? I usually take longer than that to figure out I am in labor! I am seriously reconsidering being induced. Something I am totally against, unless of course it is medically necessary. It just doesn't seem right to me to pick your baby's birthday. I don't know why, I just think its weird. Then there is also the fact that with Lyon, I was offered the induction, wasn't going to do it, but then I ended up going into labor the day before I could have been induced! I am thinking that I will simply have to prepare for the possibility of delivering my own baby. Or having Phil do it for me.
NO WAY! I refuse I am having this baby in the hospital dangit!

Oh my goodness girly! You have the preggers worry sickness! Everything is going to be okay! I had to pick London's Birthday and I totally understand how you are feeling on that. It was so weird to walk in and be like "um yeah I have an appointment to have my baby" Lol. But.... in the long run I NEVER even think about it. As long as their lungs are mature and the baby is physically healhty than it is okay if you pick the day. That is just my opinion. There are a lot of benifits to it too. I mean you know you when you have to be there and you can be totally prepared. And if you go into labor before than you win both ways. But I totally understand that there are risks too. Just take a deep breath (well as deep as you can with that baby in there) and soon your baby will be here and you wont have to stress. You look amazing by the way!

First off, Let me tell you, you look beautiful!
Second, I would make the induction a matter of prayer...then you'll know what you should do...or maybe it will at least help ease your anxiety?
