Being induced


Today is my due date and here I am in the hospital! WooHOO!!! Because I have gestational diabetes, they wouldn't let me go to far past my due date, so I had been scheduled to be induced on Tuesday morning. I couldn't sleep last night. I had realized that my brother in law, Steve was flying out Tuesday morning to start his tour in Iraq. Talk about rotten timing! So, I decided to call the hospital this morning at six to see how busy they were and if there was anyway I could be induced today instead. Six hours later and here I am! Don't hold your breath, though. I doubt I will actually have Charlotte today. Instead of using pitocin, they have decided to start with the cervix softening suppository...they won't even really check me for another 12 hours. That won't be until midnight. So Sa and I are going to have a quiet, kidless day in the hospital. We'll hang out, watch movies, play cards...I'm looking forward to it. Today is going to be a great day! I'll post more as thing progress...wish me luck!
