OK ladies, here's the scoop. My BP was up again this morning so the MW's had to transfer my care to Emanuel Legacy. They are going to induce labor to make sure I don't get toxemia. I'm heading in tonight around 9pm and they are going to use cervadil to dilate me & then by morning they are going to assess & probably start the pitocin.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send me some calming, easy labor vibes. I've heard some not-so-great stories about Pitocin & I'm a little nervous.

Deep breath are going to be just fine. Hang in there, think only of your little one and it will all be over fast and soon you will be holding your baby

Sending gentle labour vibes : You'll be okay, you can get through it. You will find strength where you didn't know you had it when you need it.
