32 week appt.... appropriate?

Is the 32 week appt an appropriate appt to bring up the birth plan, and induction date, especially since i have my hospital tour next week? I need an induction date agreed on now (preferably Oct 20, my due date is the 18th) if i don't have her before then so my mom can get her tickets and get it all settled. He has already agreed to an induction a month ago, we just haven't settled on a date. So would this be an appropriate appt?

And as for the hospital tour do you bring your birthplan then too, to go over when you are filling out all your paper work and talking with the nursing coordinator?

Seems normal to me.

my doctor gave me a birth plan form at my 32 week appointment and asked me to bring it to my 36 week appointment so they could make copies and file it in my patient records.  if you have your birthing plan ready, there's no harm in asking your doctor to talk to you about the things you'd like to discuss this early.

i never had a birth plan but u might not be able to schudule an induction cause if u do go over ur due date u still might not be ready to be induced my doc would even talk about induction until it looked like the baby was ready to come which was being dialated and somewhat effaced she said it might not work if the baby wasnt ready

He already agreed to an induction a week before my due date. so he shouldn't have a problem writing one in for two days after my EDD

I think it's appropriate.  However, my doctor doesn't do the pre-hospital admission paperwork until 36 weeks, which to me is a little late.  A lot of women end up delivering early.  I don't think it's too early to ask for an induction date though.  Many women schedule c-sections months in advance, although that may be different since it's surgery.  With the birth plan, I was going to give one copy to my OB by 36 weeks, then include a few copies in my pre-admission paperwork and bring several copies with me when I go into labor.  You never know if they will get lost or staff changes and stuff like that.
