My midwife convinced me to go into for an induction tonight at 9pm. So sure enough, I had a rough morning sleeping because I kept be woken by CONTRACTIONS.

Take THAT induction!! Currently they're 6-8 minutes apart sorta, though it's looking like it's going to be similar to my labor with Violet, where every once in a while I'll have 2 or 3 contractions piled on top of each other, long before transition or anything. It's happened twice in the last hour.

Anyway, I was ALMOST convinced to go for the induction last night. So glad I didn't so I can labor at home and get some cleaning done today :)

That is awesome!! Now see if you can jog up and down the stairs or something. . .get that baby's head to put pressure on your cervix. lol

Anyways, that is great news. . .and glad to hear that you decided to give your body a chance to go into labor on its own. I hope your LO make her debut tonight or no later than tomorrow morning.

Best wishes. . .

Oh, Kate, I am so happy for you! What an answer to prayers!

Can hardly wait to hear how things are going for you, and the birth story after! Yay, Kate!

I was a little worried and wondering when you hadn't posted anything for a day or two, so this is excellent news! Giant happy sendoff vibes!
