Well, I went to the dr. yesterday and I am at 1 1/2 centimeters, very soft, but she said my cervix is long still.
We started talking about induction because of my husband's work situation, and she said she feels good about doing it at this point so we scheduled it for Wednesday AM.
She is planning to give me the pill form of Cytotec to start off with, and I have been pretty nervous about that but trying to reassure myself. Yes, I've done a search on here and yes, I've been to the FDA website. But I'm pretty sure it's the same thing I had with ds #1, except that doctor inserted it vaginally.
Anyway... I woke up probably 2 hours ago, presumably to pee, and just could not go back to sleep. It seemed like I was having some stronger-than-usual contractions while laying there but I wasn't about to get my hopes up so I just tried to go back to sleep. Then my stomach started growling and I realized it probably really was hungry so I finally got up and came to the kitchen to get something to eat. And when I just went to the bathroom a little bit ago, I've definitely got "bloody show"! It is like red-tinged mucous and it's been there for a few trips to the bathroom now. The sight of that made me cry. It is an outward sign that at least my body is preparing, and maybe something will happen on its own today - but at the very least I don't feel like we're starting things from "square one" anymore! I have felt kind of menstrual-crampy since I got up, but no noticeable contractions like they were in bed. I'm sitting here on my birthing ball... trying to help!
Anyone who's actually reading this, I'll keep you posted!
