Medical Necessity

Well, My doc said that he will not induce me before 42 weeks UNLESS it is medically necessary. So I have taken it upon myself to list the medical necessities for me to be induced:

Sleep deprivation/Fatigue--I think I average about 4-5 hours a night--over a period of time that's got to be medically alarming!

Chronic Heartburn-- I don't know if I have an esophagus anymore.

Shortness of Breath--

Excessive rapid weight gain- Who wants to continue to gain a pound a week PAST the due date?

Frequent bathroom visits--

When I list these, I sound like a commercial for a new medicine. Any of these would be medical reasons for alarm, but when you're pregnant you just get to live with them for 9 months (or more).

I feel so bad for you...I don't think there is anything worse then being 40+ weeks pregnant! That is torture to a woman...absolutly no good!
I am sending positive thoughts your way that you will go into labor within the next 24 hours. :)
