As much as I tried to go natural, it turns out that I will have to be medically induced tomorrow due to losing fluid. Thank you all for your tips on inducing naturally, but unfortunately I couldn't get any to work: Hopefully my labor won't be too bad or too long, but if it goes like my other two then I will be laboring for a good 15 hours or so. oh well

Hi. Don't know if this will help, as I can't remember your situation...are you actually leaking fluid, or is your fluid just measuring low via u/s? I've heard that virtually every mom measures low on the u/s reading unless they take great care to hydrate--i.e., drinking at least 2 liters of water 1-2 hours before the u/s. If it's the latter, I might try to schedule another u/s and drink like a maniac beforehand.

You may be well past that point, though--I hope everything goes well, either way. Good luck and happy labor!

Good luck! Hope everything goes as well as possible for you. I was induced with my first and it really wasn't that bad, although I did end up with an epidural.
