the bad news- my cervix is still high up, and i don't know any numbers, but she said it doesn't feel like anything is going on in there. it's just soft, but not dilated.

good news- i'm scheduled for an induction next fri, which is my actual due date. i can change my mind and just wait... but the hubby wants to stick w/ the induction. makes it easier to plan and have someone come watch ethan, plus he'll know when to take time off work.

i'm also torn cuz i had wanted to try natural, no drugs, and i know that the pitocin can make it hurt much more. maybe the baby will decide to just come on his own before fri, then i won't need to decide! but i doubt it...

OMG Linda! I can't believe it's that time already. I hope the baby decides to come on his own before the induction for you. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!! G/L honey! I'm so excited for you.

Hi Linda! Glad you're back! I can't believe your little one will be here so soon. I just wanted to let you know that it is do-able to have pit and no meds, I did it with DD (water broke w/o labor so they induced). I will say that it isn't ideal, because you have to be hooked up the whole time....so I hope your little one comes soon. Cori just wanted longer to bake and I have a feeling this one will be the same to I'm trying to just keep my "due date" out of my head. Good luck!

I have had to be induced with both of my kids and yes it does make it hurt worse. It comes on very sudden. As soon as the pitocin hits the vein then it starts. I will keep my fingers crossed that the baby comes before then.

I was induced with my second and even though it did make the contraction more painful, the labor was alot quicker (23 hours for my natural labor, 4 for my induced) and I was able to do it without meds. I'll keep my fingers crossed that if you do end up going ot your induction date, that it will be just as fast for you!

oh thanks ladies, now i have hope that i might be able to do it w/o an epidural! i don't see the baby coming early, i don't have tons of bh, and my first wasn't early at all either. i just hear stories about how the contractions hurt so much more w/ pitocin... but i didn't realize it was a lot quicker too.

i'm still going to try for no epi. but i think i will keep my induction date. the hubby seems to really want it, i suspect mostly for the convenience of having someone be w/ ethan and him telling his work exactly when he's leaving. hmpf. men. i will think about you guys when i'm in labor and how it can be done w/o an epidural!!!!!

OMG Linda, it's almost time, I can't believe it. Good for you to want to have this baby the natural way that's what I wanted, but Alex had other plans in mind
Anyway a friend of dh, his wife was induced and she still had a natural birth, no drugs, apparently she was not in pain.
I hope this baby decides to come on his own.

patty- don't worry about the c-sec, there was no way around him being breech! w/ ethan, i had wanted to go natural too, but i broke down and asked for an epi, that's why i want to do it this time so bad, it's my last chance! now i'm hearing of people doing it naturally even w/ the pitocin, so i'm not SO worried.

sarah- men are just silly, give mark a few days, he'll get over his ankle. so are you moving closer to mark? or w/ him? moving is such a PITA, good luck.

thanks ladies!!!

a little update... this morning i peed and saw a bunch of brown/pink blood on the tp, look in the toilet and there is a LOT of tissue, i'm pretty sure it was my plug!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYA
then next time going potty, the blood again, but no more plug. i'm not having contrax, but i'm so happy to see my plug fell out. that has to count for something right?!
