Baby Z's impending arrival

So we had an appointment with the doctor today. I love my doctor but sometimes I sure wish he wasn't such a 'by the book' kind of guy! I asked him if he could possibly 'strip my membranes' to get this show on the road. His response? Because I'm not 37 weeks (I'm 36 weeks and 6 days), he can't. But he will next week, if I'm still pregnant that is (his words, not mine) He also said that if I really want to get this show on the road, that I needed to have a talk with my uterus...HA! He did say that he would induce me, but not a day before 39 weeks. So if Baby Z hasn't shown up by then, we will be induced on January 22nd. We're 39 weeks on the 21st, but he's out of town that he's making me wait one more day! HA! Of course, he doesn't, nor do I, nor does my husband, think that we will make it until then. All of my babies have come 3 weeks early, and I am dilated to 3, so we'll see. I wouldn't be quite so anxious except for the fact that we live in the part of the country where we have blizzards frequently (we're possibly going to be having one in the next day or two), my mom lives 5 hours away and she's the one that is coming to stay with our other kids while I'm in the hospital, we live about 30 minutes away from the hospital in good weather, and I have super quick deliveries. Oh who am I kidding? I'd be anxious even if it wasn't for all of those things! I'm just anxious to get this baby home and healthy. Stay tuned....
