Crazy or Smart?

So I am trying to decide if I am crazy or smart? Today at my doctors appointment I was given the choice of being induced on Monday March 31. Of course I said, "yes, please." Now I am having some hesitation because they would call me on Monday sometime, they say if possible in the morning, but it could be in the middle of the night as well. I really don't want to go through labor all night again(Amber was born at 6:06 AM). If they would just tell be to come at 9:00 and that I would have her on the 31st, preferably before 12:00 April 1, then I would be all about it(I think). Then of course maybe she isn't ready and I should let her cook longer, but oh how much longer? Hopefully she will just decide to come before that and I won't have a choice of time or date. I guess with all this modern medicine I am lucky to have choices but I still don't know what to do. You have all heard me complain so what do you think?
Here is what I look like to help you better weigh in.

Let's see: do you take the advice of a doctor that has something like 37 years of medical schooling or a bunch comments from the internet's questionable characters?

Tough decision!

@testmonkey -- :P

@xtina -- you could always get on that treadmill, eat some jalapenos, and have testmonkey help you "relax" and see if that doesn't entice the potato to sprout early.

GOOD LUCK. I have the phone on and am awaiting the call. Must go baby present shopping!

I'm a leave-it-to-the-baby kind of gal, but that's not to say I didn't have induction dates set up for both my kids. They just decided to come before the induction date arrived. thanks boys!!

Do what ever you feel comfortable with, I am with you on the April fools baby thing though! My phone will be ready what the time comes(or you can just walk over and bang on my door!), it will be fun having Amber at our house while that little one gets here!
