I saw my doctor yesterday. I am still surprised at his gentleness compared to the other doctors. He didn't measure my belly or poke me until it hurt - I guess the other two weren't that familiar with me. He checked my cervix and there was no more progress in the dialation. So.....

da da da-da

I am scheduled for an induction beginning tomorrow (Thursday) evening.
I am supposed to go in at 7:30 pm to begin cytotec application for softening of the cervix. Then I suppose we will see where it goes.
I have heard that for some, that is all it takes to get things started. That would be cool - since I have heard pitocen can cause some crazy labor isn't crazy pain anyways...I guess women who have experienced both natural and induced would be able to explain the difference - but it seems to me like every birth is different so it would be hard to completely contribute it to the drug.

They won't break my water until sometime on Friday. I assume she will be here on Friday.

So her birthday will probably be 01/09/2009. Not bad. I had been hoping for an even date, but this one has a ring to it.

I put her birth date into a numerology calculator and this is what it said....
