One Year Ago Today ...

I was one day past my due date, and I had a prenatal appointment. My doc hooked me up to a monitor to check for contractions. I had small ones and an accompanying backache that was growing uncomfortable. My doctor said she had put us on the schedule for me to be induced that Friday.

As my husband and I left the doctor's office and we were walking past the appointment desk, I thought, "Hey, she didn't tell us when to schedule the next appointment," and then slowly I realized why she didn't -- because if I didn't go into full labor on my own, I was going to be induced later that week. That was my last prenatal appointment.
