Can't believe I'm still pregnant.....

It looks like my sweet July boy is going to become an August Boy. I am 40 weeks 4 days today. My NST was fine yesterday and so was my amniotic levels. So sadly I have to wait until 41 weeks to be induced. My LO is as low as he can go but I've been only 1 cm dialated for almost a month now. And I'm 50%effaced.

So right now the plan is I head in Thursday night for a does of cervidil and then I get induced on Friday. I had pitocin with Joey but any one have any experience with cervidil and can give me any idea what I'm going into?

But I have to say knowing that I can't go any further than friday has made me feel alot better mentally. I can see the end in sight and it won't be a whole lot longer until I get to meet my LO.

Anyone else out there still preggo?

ME! at 41 weeks 2 days...BUT tomorrow is the big day Smile Well hopefully - I am waiting for the hospital to call with a time to start induction. Not excited about being induced but I am soooooo tired of being pregnant and just want to meet my little guy!

I had something with my first, might have been cervidal I can't remember (it was 7 years ago) but the hospital was very aggressive with my induction - I pretty much went from whatever they used to pitocin very quickly!

Wishing you all the best Smile

Lurking..
With my son, I had cervidil first, then pitocin.
Lets just say they put in the cervidil, and within 2 hours my contractions were painful and barely one minute apart. Basically non-stop. AND it was back labor.(mind you that I wasnt even 2cm, and NOT even in the slightest bit of labor when i went in). So the cervidil worked TOO WELL for me, and they actually had to take it out to slow it down. Then gave me pitocin a few hours later, that worked better because they can control the dosage. Not trying to scare you at all, usually that doesnt happen to women lol. But thats what happened to me!
