k - im a little down at the moment. Just came home from my hospital appointment. The hospital have always said my due date is on the 9th and so today was supposed to be my 40 week appointment.
When my DR looked at my paperwork he said that my due date had actually been the 3rd - this is based on my cycle information and then he said that they should of always used this date. Even though he has always been my hospital dr. but oh well. So today was actually 41 weeks.
So he examined me and said bubs is only half way engage and every thing is still ok. And then said that they will induce me on monday if i havent delivered by then. But then he said that i should make sure i go straight to hospital as soon as labour starts.
I really didnt think too much of that until DH said some thing in the car. DH took it as 'go to the hospital the first sign of labour' and we have always said that i would like to stay at home as long as possible b4 going into the hospital and have to labour there (i think i would like to spend time in the bath and my own home b4 going to hospital). So now we are both in different opinions. I just assumed he meant dont put off coming to hospital too long just because i am being induced and DH took it to mean come to hospital straight away because being overdue means that i'll have to be monitored more closely.
So in a very long way - im asking if any one has any experience about this - does being overdue make you more of a high risk and that they would prefer you to come straight into hospital at the first signs of labour so they can monitor you closely?
DH have come to the conclusion we will ring birthing suite at the first signs and explain what was said to us and get them to say yay or nay....but thought i would ask here also.
thanks if you have lastest this long through my epic post!!!!
