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...
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

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 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!
