I'm trying to stay as calm and relaxed as I can today. I had a routine exam this morning and was told by my doctor that I need to go to the hospital tonight. Due to my "toxemia" history with Isaiah 9 years ago, and toxemia again with this second one..they want to be extra careful that the baby is delivered and safe.
I'm nervous, I don't know what to expect out of being "induced". I've accepted that maybe a C-section might be a route we'll have to take. It's for the safety of the baby and of course, for my health.
Going to be given Cervidil tonight to soften the cervix and if everything looks good tomorrow morning when the doc checks in on me, we can start the Pitocin. *sigh*, with Isaiah everything was so fast and done on its own without the use of meds. But it's true what they say, "every pregnancy is different". I don't remember how long I pushed with Isaiah, but I just remember how good the feeling was when he came out. I won't be too TMI on here, but it was a nice feeling!!!
I prepped all of Isaiah's things for the week. I'm going to be missing him when we're in the hospital. Of course, I'll be calling him every night to check on him. Unless I go into labor, then I'll have to see him after the baby is born. I was supposed to chaperone his field trip this Thursday. I guess not anymore!!!
