So, apparently all those contractiony nights and stuff did NOTHING!!! Ugh. SO not what I wanted. So I'm going into the hospital tonight at 8pm, where they will put in a foley catheter. I wasn't so sure about it, but my Dr. was very reassuring and said that since I responded so well to the induction last time, he doesn't see any reason why I should have a very long labor or anything. So that's that. I cried on the way home.
And then I started thinking about the positives.
1: I'll probably get my baby sooner!!
2: I was getting anxious about falling asleep tonight and waking up tomorrow with her not moving. So...I don't have to worry about that!
And probably the best part:
3: They have an anesthesiologist JUST for the maternity ward on both the day and night shifts. Well, the daytime guy isn't all that great. W/ Cora it took him 3 tries to get the epi in. A girl I know told me on Sunday that it was the same for her (neither of us remembered the guy's name, but it was definitely the same guy from other descriptions). 3 tries. But the night shift guy is apparently REALLY good. So hopefully my epi will go in during the night sometime and on the first try!!
DH and I are planning on going out to dinner tonight. Our last dinner just him and me w/out having to worry about a babysitter.
Oh, and my bp was a little high today, so maybe it's a good thing I'm going in earlier...
Oh hun!! How excited you must be!! I am praying for you and the little one, post when you can with pics!!! We will all be waiting to see the wonderful photos. Wishing you the best!

I know how hard this whole journey has been for you. I am extatic that you are going in this evening & will be praying that you have a wonderful & easy delivery. I know that your heart will melt the first time you here Rielle cry & when you get to hold her. This day has been long awaited. My thoughts & prayers are w/ you! I can't wait to read the birth story & see a BEAUTIFUL picture!
wow Brit, I can't believe it's tomorrow!!!!!!!!! soooooooooooooooooooooooon we will be learning all about Ms Rielle's arrival and seeing your first pics of her.... aw, i'm so excited for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are going to be in my thoughts from this second onward, I know that this is going to be a pretty crazy time for you - but I know everything will be just fine!!!
I still can't believe your little miracle is almost here (or she may have arrived by now!). It seems like just yesterday I was welcoming you to JM with a sad heart and here you are about to hold your sweet Rielle. I know Cora's with you all today, watching and protecting you. May today be filled with many, many blessings!
