induction tonight
Tue, 04-16-2013 - 3:46pm

I had my midwife appointment today.  I am 3cm dialated, 70 effacted and -1 station.  She doesn't want me to wait another week to have this baby becaue she will be almost 9 lbs by then.  We agreed to induce tonight at midnight!!  She left it totally up to us, but I'm so over being pregnant.  We discussed risks to me for the induction as well as waiting and decided it is better to just go ahead with an induction.  I'm excited to meet her and to have my body back!  I've been having contractions off and on for weeks and I can't take it any more.  I've been having even more contractions today than usual so maybe I'll go into labor before tonight, but I'm not holding my breath on that!!

Good luck!! Hope everything moves along quickly!! Are they starting pitocin at midnight?  That seems like an odd time to me to start labor.

Wow! Good luck mama! That's awesome. When you get a moment, please do post your birth story. That helps tie those of us who are still waiting over. Soooo exciting!
