I barely slept last night. How do you sleep knowing??? I have to say, this is my first experiencing knowing ahead of time that I'm going to go have a baby tomorrow and yuck! I am not a fan. I thought not knowing was stressful but this is crazy. My brain can't wrap around it at all.
But it is what it is and this kid is coming out today! I've had crazy strong contractions since 4:00am and my hot shower made them stronger instead of calming them so hopefully when he breaks my water, this kid just slides out! I can dream, anyway!!!!
Update (from 2 hours ago):
Got my line in just in case I need an IV, on monitors for now. Blood pressure is high but it's totally because I'm a nervous wreck. Watching TV and waiting for them to come break my water... Probably won't update much for awhile because I feel cruddy and can't really focus.
Update:. Grateful that my doctor is one of those rare gems that has no food restrictions for his laboring patients. Just ordered lunch! Had cytotec and it's definitely doing its thing--lots of cramping, etc. Water breaking has been delayed til 2:00. I'm glad, needed time to calm down, gather my thoughts and now to refuel with some lunch.
Update: Got some pain meds. After they broke my water contractions got crazy strong. Just a shot of something, no epidural. Not Nubian, something else? It's an hourly injection that doesn't make baby groggy. Anyway... A little dizzy. Closing my eyes for awhile.
