The not knowing...

Am 38+4 with DD2... when expecting DD1 I got so impatient and fed up I actually began to suffer symptoms of depression from how wound up I got myself. This time I am far more chilled... but with a 2yo, DH working nights, and parents who will look after DD1 a 40 min drive away I am starting to get twitchy again. I would be totally fine with going into labour right now. Or at 42 weeks. Would prefer not to be induced again after a bad experience, but could even make my peace with that scenario... I just want to know!! The not knowing is really starting to get to me again sad

I'm 37+ 4 now with my first and the not knowing was really getting to me- I need a plan. So while the induction we're now going for on thursday (big baby) is not ideal, at least I know when some of it will be. And I've booked dogs into boarding ready, and DH has booked leave since Pat leave doesn't kick in til after the arrival etcetc
