induction now thursday

Hospital changed my induction for thursday at 6:30am. I'm really hoping we avoid pitocin and try cervagel or cylotec (sp) first.

I met with the widwife yesterday who had to approve it and she agreed its safe and baby and I are ready. I have to leave home on the first ferry, 5:40am. I'm going by myself so dh can get the boys to school at 8, then he'll come afterward.

Glad everything is arranged and ready to go!! Sorry about the date change though. When they postphoned me two days I was devestated. I won't be on today so good luck for tomorrow!

Good luck! I found pitocin MUCH easier to deal with this go round because I got my epidural first. If you don't plan on an epi, I would do my best to skip the pit, too! I'll be thinking of you!

Good luck....I hope you are able to avoid pit BUt although its no walk in the park, I found it WAS possible to labor with pit and no epi.

thanks girls Smile I think my body is really ready too, so I'm not too bummed about going this route, even though it wasnt my original plan.

As much as I wanted it to be today so I would be home before the weekend, I am glad I had today to prep, I didnt realize I still had a ton to do, washing my bedding, paying bills, that kind of stuff.
