EEEK tomorrow is it!

excited nervous scared all in one. probably no sleeping here tonight. I am exhausted though. They told me to eat a light breakfast. I need to decide if Im going to abide byt hat or if Im going to eat a Normal breakfast. If I dont eat enough Ill have a migraine by 10.... so im thinking normal breakfasT? I mean if I were to go into labor on my own I wouldnt have planned a light meal beforehand!

I will have someone updating or Heather will see updates on facebook. I call at 5:30 am to see if there is a bed. if htere is, then I go to the hospital at 7, induction at 7:15!!

Good luck! I've never known ahead of time that I was going to have a baby the next day (even with my induction I was admitted for other health issues and after a couple days it was decided that immediate induction was the best choice and they started right away). I can't imagine all the emotions!!! It must be crazy!

with DS we went in for a migraine and high blood pressure.. we went simply bc I had already reached my limit of allowed meds..... and they induced that night. I had to FIGHT to get a small sandwich because I hadn't eaten all day (anything I did I had thrown back up) and not eating = migraine, migraine= high blood pressure/ nausea+inability to eat= viscious cycle!... DH and mom think baby will be here by 12. I hope they are right!

I didnt know so I didnt have this feeling of mixed emotions. it doesnt help that DS is STILL awake and won't go to sleep (or that mommy and daddy feel guilty bc we won't be here tomorrow night with him)

I was induced with Sophie. They broke my water at 8:30, and at 10:30 I had a baby!! You are already dilated to a 3 right?! If so, then I think you definitely could have a baby by 12.

Happy induction eve! Feel free to FB me and I'll update the board. DD has daycare tomorrow so it will just be M and I here.

I knew a date for DD's c-section for 2 weeks before but found it comforting. I totally slept fine the night before as it all seemed surreal.

Thanks Heather!~ I unfortunately slept like crud....the whole not knowing what to do this morning with absolutely no water was NOT a comforting thing before bed...esp when we went from low pressure to NO water at all coming out of the sinks. luckily we woke up to full water pressure ! so now I just have to call the hospital to see if there is a bed! praying there is!

UGH. no beds available so I have to wait until 12 to call back and see.... unless they call me sooner. they are still going to try to get me in today but I have to play the wait and see game now. Sad

So sorry about the water situation, but that's great that you had full pressure when you woke up this morning. I really hope a bed opens up and they can get you in today. That would be hard to have to keep calling and waiting... definitely kup! Oh, and 1 cm isn't bad. I honestly don't think it really matters in the end. Your body's going to do what it's going to do.

Oh man! That whole 'no bed' thing would be very disappointing! I wouldn't handle that very well emotion-wise. I hope they get you in soon!!

I hope they can get you in later!

With my induction with DS2 they had no room on my scheduled day. I had to wait until the NEXT day, at noon. I hope that's not the case for you!

No bed. Grrrrrr . But Im going in for a nonstress test either way at 3. to "evaluate" the situation. I guess bc my dr put in that I needed to be induced MONDAY bc of high blood pressure they need to at least have me in to check it. hoping its up!!! we just got back from taking DS to mcdonalds to play in the play place. That's enough to raise it!

Oh shoot Patience. I would be frustrated. Not that I hope your BP is up, but I can understand that at this point you would welcome it!!
