Looks like its baby time!

I had a BPP/NST today and several factors pointed to the fact that we should move this show on. So I am going in to the hospital in an hour to start the lowest dose of pitocin to get my labor going.

I have been having lots of contractions but they always go away at night and my cervix is definitely dilating. So hopefully it will only take a tiny bit of pitocin to kick start my body. I really was not wanting anything artificial to start my labor but my midwives are very sparing with pitocin and I know my body is almost there so I am pretty at peace with our decision.

So either tonight or tomorrow my sweet baby will be here! Smile

Yahooooooo! I can't wait to hear how everything goes! I needed pitocin with my 2nd and it was 100x better labor than with DS1. My mom scared the bejesus out of me with horror stories reguarding pitocin and I was sooooo scared. Hopefully the little bit is all you'll need! ELV!!!!
