    SO I had my ultrasound and doctors appointment today.
    I am 75% effaced and 1 cm dilated , also baby is measuring 9.5 lbs give or take a pound.
    but the best part is I am getting induced tomorrow at 7:30am so hopefully I will be a mommy in a day or two!!! I am so excited I don't know how I will ever sleep tonight lol
    BeautifullyBlessed responded:
    Awwwwwww! Congrats! I know getting induced was the best news ever!

    They're inducing you because of the baby's weight, right?

    9.5lbs is BIG!!!! What have you been feeding that

    Let us know right away how your labor goes and it felt when you first held your LO

    God Bless!
    capriciousangel31 replied to BeautifullyBlessed's response:
    yep because of the baby's weight which is fine with me , I would hate to have to wait another week and then have a 10lb baby.

    I will let everyone know right away how things go and when this little one is out

    Positive thoughts! Good luck with your induction!
    capriciousangel31 responded:
    okay update I am still at the hospital and will be over night, I am still only 75% effaced and 1 cm dilated but contractions are 3 to 6minutes apart and I started to spot so we are slowing things down for the night and just letting me relax and then tomorrow morning we are most likely going to start pictocin
    BeautifullyBlessed replied to capriciousangel31's response:
    Wow....sorry if this is a stupid question, but are you exhausted? You've been in the hospital since 7:30am. How are you feeling?
    happymoe replied to capriciousangel31's response:
    Did they just do cervadril tape or gel? I had the tape inserted each morning for two days and then had pitocin on the 3rd day. I hope yours goes faster than mine!! Positive thoughts!!
    Zaysmama responded:
    Sorry this has been such a long process for you but it sounds like you are staying positive which is great. Hopefully by now you are either enjoying a nap after or hold LO in your arms!
    Can't wait to hear your birth story and glad you and baby are doing well so far! ...
