With DD, my ovulation meter never said I ovulated in the month DD was conceived and with this baby, I never recorded my LMP the month we conceived. So, due dates are very much 'estimated' and I like the idea of baby cooking as long as needed.

But your kidney issues seem legit.
Agreed. OP, I feel for you. What a tough situation..

Re: Actual reasons for induction UPDATE OP

I was induced at 40 weeks for crappy financial reasons. I couldn't physically go to work anymore and since my husband was unemployed, I couldn't afford to take time off before having the baby (short term disability wouldn't kick in until the baby actually came out). I would have rather stayed at home on bed rest for a week or so until she came on her own. However, I sat at 1 cm dilated for 6 weeks with no budging, so I may have been induced anyway. Even though I was induced, had pitocin and and epidural (not at all part of my "plan"). I actually had a good experience, thankfully but I am hoping to labor naturally next time (if I can . . . life happens, though!)

In your case OP, I would absolutely induce at 38 weeks and feel very proud about making it that far with all you've had dealt to you
I completely agree.

We chose to induce at 39 weeks with DD for a whole list of reasons:
~we live 30 min from any hospital
~i am home by my self with 2 other kids 6 nights out of 7 (DH works 9am-9pm)
~DH works 30 min away
~DS2 birth was 20 min from first contraction to birth. (I was already at the hospital for appointment thankgoodness--DH didn't make it)
~i was 4cm at 38 weeks and 0 station. After not going into labor over the weekend while DH was home I was a nervous wreck.
~DH was able to take that next week off work.
