Quoting Theknights:" lol nah im hopeing theyll tell me somthing about my dilation. If I havent had the baby by 39 weeks im ... [snip!] ... and if hes gone and I go into labor they wont let him come home so he wont get to hold her or anything for almost 9 months :/"
Knowing your dilation doesn't change anything and checking can introduce bacteria (most dr's won't check you, but your's could be different.) Good luck with induction! I have a history of going over due and having complications due to that. My dr. still won't induce me the week of my due date. She'll make an apt. for the following week.
Plenty of military families have to wait. I honestly hope she doesn't, because that's being selfish and could cause harm to your baby.
