Going to the hospital tonight!

Had another visit with my doctor this morning--my cervix is still shut like a clam. I'm going into the hospital tonight to have some medicine put on my cervix to try and soften it. He said they leave it in there for 12 hours, sometimes labor will start before then, though. I haven't heard of anyone having that done before, so we will see how it goes! Then they will start induction, so looks like it will be a long haul!

When I had my first (was induced at 37 weeks due to pre-e) I had to go in the night before induction and have meds to ripen the cervix so it's not all that uncommon. Good Luck!!! Smile

I had two out in for my induction. It causes contractions, but they aren't bad! Good luck!!
