I M Getting Induced

Chrissy - May 10

Well here's my update for those who have seen my story so far! I went to the doctor today and found out he is going to induce me next week Wednesday. He is having me come back this friday for a nonstress test, then Monday to check if I am dilated at all. If I am, he will start the induction on Wed am, if I am not at all dilated (haven't been checked at all for this yet ) then he may decide to have me come in at like 10pm Tuesday to start the induction process. I am soo excited to know I will have my baby in one week but sooo nervous about getting induced. I'll be 38 weeks so I feel pretty good about the baby being in there long enough I guess, but not so sure about this whole induction thing. Seems like lots of them turn into Csections. For those who dont know my story, he is doing this because of high blood pressure and low amnio fluid.

hey chrissy... i was induced with my daughter.. and lucky for me i didn't have to have a c-section. i know there are a lot of induction horror stories, but mine went very smoothly.. i was even able to do it without an epidural. the whole thing lasted about 17 hours start to finish (i went in at 2 cm dilated) and my water broke at 7 1/2 cm and my daughter was born less than three hours later. i had a great experience.. and i hope you do too!!! :)
