The end of the tunnel

Tomorrow's induction day. I was really hoping I'd go into labor before then, and I still could, but at 10 days over I guess tomorrow's the day. I'm a bit nervous about the whole induction thing and I'd rather have it progress naturally, but this is the best option available. The doctors think it shouldn't actually take much to get things going, but then again they didn't think I'd even make it to my due date.

I'll be back Thursday or Friday with the update, depending on when this one arrives I might have to be there more than 24 hours. Thanks for all the well wishes.

Best wishes to you and your little soon-to-be arrival.

Look on the bright side....at least with an induction you get to have your legs shaved and toe nails painted since there is no surprise to when it will happen!!

God Bless!

Hi - I had inductions with both my babies since I went two weeks over the due dates with absolutely no contractions or signs of them wanting to leave!
Apart from the induction (the first IV the second with a gel on the cervix) both were fantastic, natural births. Since you've already had two you should dilate pretty fast.

You'll breeze through the induction like the fantastic athlete you are!

I'll be thinking of you all! Good luck! I'm sure you'll make it a snappy transition. Get it...get it.. triathlon humor. Oh, wait, I don't remember being able to laugh much right about now...

You'll do fine, and you'll be so relieved when he/she arrives.
