The Plan

Just a quick update and then I'm going to take a nap.

We're scheduled to go into the hospital tonight to be induced. They'll start with the pill on my cervix and walking the halls, which I'm hoping will be enough. If not, my doctor will come tomorrow morning to break my water. If that doesn't do the trick, the last resort will be Pit.ocin, which I really hope to avoid.

It's not exactly the plan I'd hoped for. I wanted to be able to labor at home as long as possible and without any drugs, but my doctor is on-call tomorrow. I really want to deliver with him and I know the other two docs in his practice are quicker to push the drugs.

And I'm really ready to be done and bring this baby home!

Wish me luck!


  1. YEAH! I'm so excited for you to experience labor. Hopefully the pill and walking will do enough. My doctor did break my water, but they never had to use pitocin. I felt the same way - wanted to deliver with *my* doctor. Hope the labor and delivery goes smoothly! Can't wait to hear when your new bundle has arrived!

  2. I can't wait to hear the details about your birth and see your little one! Congrats in advance!
