Induction: Tomorrow, 8pm

I chickened out today for the induction, which was scheduled at midnight. I just couldn't see myself getting enough rest between my appointment and some of the other things I needed to do away from home today. Plus my husband was working and I wanted to make sure he had some rest time too. So tomorrow we will just be relaxing as much as we can before the trip to the hospital. I really don't want to be induced, as I would rather spend the first few hours of labor at home or at least not strapped to monitors. But I guess in the end, everything will turn out fine. I just need to be brave and not get too scared...this happens all the time to lots of women. I will try to keep that in mind. And who knows, he still may make his debut tonight or tomorrow!

  2. They will probably just put in something called Cervidil (or something similar) to relax the cervix and allow you to start dilating. They did this at night with me, and then started the pitocin the next morning.

    I understand you being nervous. Try to relax though. I know easier said than done!

    Good luck and can't wait to see baby pictures.
