Mrslovebug:  good luck! There’s always the epidural if the pain is too much! I have birth 11 weeks ago and it wasn’t bad at all. I had an epi and didn’t feel a thing. You’ll do great!! Plus you get a beautiful little squishy baby tomorrow – so fun!

Hey, it speeds things up! I had to be induced with both my girls. It wasn’t scheduled but I wouldn’t dilate past 4cm with the first (so 48 hours in they decided to induce, ugh). With the second my water broke at work five weeks early, so I got to have a another induction, lol. Just make sure to get your epidural and it’ll be smooth sailing from there 😉

I was induced with my first son. It was scary since it was our first. We brought our laptop and movies and hung out and napped and had a great time! I was induced around 9 am and baby came out at 6:50 pm so it was an all day thing. Just relax, have a great time as you can only experience this a few times in our lives and it’s so special!! Just think, in 24 hrs you will be holdin your little one and hearing her little breaths and cries. So precious!! Relax, don’t stress cuz it’s not good for either of you, and just enjoy the moment.

And of course, there is always the lovely epidural!! I hope everything goes great for your family tomorrow! Good luck and remember to breath!!

My induction wasn’t planned but happened when my water broke and labor didn’t start on its own. My advice would be to get that epidural as soon as they allow you to have it! I waited…and dearly regretted it as the pitocin indiced contractions were unbearable and relentless…I suffered much more than necessary!

I haven’t had the experience myself but it seems like uou have a smoother, calmer labor if you keep the fears at bay and focus on relaxing. (I know easier said than done!) you could still do it without the epi if that’s the kind of birth you want, many women have! I say you should go to Tell Me A Good Birth They have lots of great stories that are really positive to give you confidence that yes you can do this!! Either way, no matter what, you’re along for the ride. Be flexible and enjoy these last moments of being pregnant 🙂 you will do great
