So…no baby yet, but my induction date has been moved up to Wednesday night. I’ll check into the hospital around 8pm and I will have a medication administered to my cervix. From there, we wait and see how much or if I will continue to dilate. For some women, it’s enough to put them in labor, for others the doctor will break their water or give them pitocin.
I met with the doctor who will deliver Jackson today and I adored him. He was kind, encouraging and I felt like he really listened to me. Aaron had a million questions of his own and he patiently answered all those as well.
Unfortunately, I remain a tight 1 centimeter. No change in three weeks now. As much as it was initially disappointing to face the reality of being induced, I have rounded the corner and I’m honestly almost giddy about it. I have faced the reality that my body is going to take it’s sweet time to go into labor and enough is enough. If it needs a little push in the right direction, I’m willing to do it. Also, it’s sort of feeds my need to plan!
Tomorrow I’m going to clean up my house, organize some of my maternity clothes, do laundry and finish packing my hospital bag. On Wednesday Aaron is going to come home after lunch and keep me company which will help pass the time.
Yea for baby week! I can’t believe in a few short days this is all going to be over and I’m going to be a mom. I am so excited.
