Pre-Induction Jitters

So tomorrow I am scheduled for induction and getting a little nervous. With DS it took 28 hours for him to come out and some pretty horrible tricks to get him out and avoid a c-section. I am not sure if it was his big head size (95th %), the fact that he was facing my stomach and refused to turn, or just the induction itself that made it super long, but i was hoping that this time it will be way faster. We also had huge issues with the NICU staff last time because Aiden had been taken up there due to the stressfull delivery.  We made it through last time with no real issues and in my opinion he didn't need to be in the NICU at all as my doc wanted thier specialist there as a precaution (in fact their staff caused some pretty crappy issues that delayed him coming home, which my doc was pretty outraged about when she found out what happened). I am just hoping that this time goes faster and therefore putting less stress on the baby so there is absolutely no NICU time. I feel as though i learned a bunch of stuff last time and will be more agressively involved in my son's treatment if he does go up there. It was hard to me to sleep last night and I'm sure that tonight will be worse. I have so many mixed emotions right now though-excitement that it will all be over soon, and anxiety over the possibility of another horrible labor. Eeeeeep!
