Gotta be at the hospital tonight at 7:30pm for my induction.
Nervous and excited all at once. It’s making my stomach hurt-lol!
I made the mistake of looking up info about the drug they’re giving me (cytotec), and it freaked me out a bit. I did find a lot of positives about it, too. It’s basically a pill they insert in your cervix to help thin and prepare you for labor. Usually Pitocin is used along with it as well. I just really hope I don’t spend forever in labor and end up needing a c-section anyways. They warned me that I might because I wasn’t progressed at all at my last appointment, and because she is a larger baby (between 8.15 and 9lbs). They also worry about shoulder dystocia if I deliver vaginally.
Oh, and as of my last doctors visit, she was in posterior, or sunny side up position. Which apparently can be bad for me and her. Nothing too drastic, just a longer labor, chance of tearing and chance of her having to go to the NICU for a bit. I’m hoping she’s turned by now but I’m not sure. They can turn her, but I hear it’s painful. But, whatever works!
But anyway, I’m 12 hours away from being admitted right now! I have so much to do, even though I should probably have slept in more. I just have a lot of things to finish up before we leave later.
Wish me luck!!!!!
