So, tomorrow we are having a baby... I am super excited but a bit sad. I had REALLY hoped he was going to come on his own before we got to this point but he just, well, isn't and he needs to come out. My fluid levels are dropping steadily and while not dangerously low YET they will be in the next few days if they keep going down. Plus, his past 2 NSTs haven't been great and it is just time I think this induction will be TONS better than the last though because my body is definitely showing signs of being ready (sporadic contractions, loss of plug, etc) so yeah... while NOT how I had hoped to start things I am so excited to MEET him!!!! I have full faith in my OB and I will be able to get up and move and everything so I am ready. Any good labor/no repeat c/s vibes ya'll can send would be incredibly appreciated

All sorts of good labour vibes coming your way! It sounds like things are so close that they just need a little nudge in the right direction so hopefully everything will go really smoothly for you!

This is pretty much what my OB said/is thinking.... I hope you guys are both right!! We are going to start with a foley catheter too in the hopes that just that will move things along...

Good luck, mama! I'll be praying that maybe you'll go naturally tonight. I had my baby 5 and 1/2 hours before I was suppose to be induced...

And if you are still induced, all will be fine! It sounds like your body really is ready!

Yay! You get to meet your baby tomorrow!!! :::
