My Induction Date

My induction date has been scheduled – October 15th at 7:30am. So, if she doesn’t come before then, she’ll be here that day for sure! :-) Update: Just got an email from my midwife explaining that my induction would only go forth on the 15th if she felt my cervix was ready to go. So, if it isn’t ready by then, she may push the date back a three or four more days as inducing me before my cervix was ready would be setting me up for a C-section. Hmm.. i hope i have this baby before i need to get induced!

Tomorrow is my due date and other than feeling very tired all the time, I have no other signs that anything is going to happen anytime soon. I guess that is how it goes though huh? yesterday, and so far today, I have just been really, really tired, despite getting at least 10 hours of sleep a night. Perhaps my body is trying to conserve energy for the big day.

My coworker’s daughter-in-law is letting me borrow a bassinet to use for Kaleya. You can see a pic of it here.

I have also been thinking a lot about baby announcments. I still haven’t figured out what I’m going to do yet – should i just order them from somewhere or should I try and do them myself? Who knows.. but I don’t have much time left to decide. So, if anyone has any recommendations for a good online site let me know!

  1. Good luck!! I was 8 days late and DD decided to start things rolling the day I was to be induced saving me from pitocin. Here’s hoping your little one does the same. :) Can’t wait to see a picture!

  2. When I had DS, the first sign that it was time was I was exhausted! I can remember the night before he was born my mom calling me and my telling her I’m just so TIRED and feel like I can’t get enough sleep. I was 3 days late with DS. Your bassinette is so cute!

  3. Taneya, everything will turn out fine. I had to be induced with my second pregnancy. My dd arrived safe and sound after only a few hours of labor. I hope the same holds true for you, whether you are induced or not! Love the bassinette!

  4. Here’s hoping for a quick labor soon! I was induced just 2.5 weeks ago, and my son was born with no problems in about 6 hours. Good luck!

  5. Yep, I’ve been exhausted for almost the last week. Seems like no amount of sleep (or naps) is enough. I know things are happening, but no labor yet, and as of tomorrow morning, it won’t matter! That seems so strange. Hope your labor starts soon and on its own!!! {{{hugs}}} Best of luck to you, hubbie, and baby.

  6. Best wishes to you and Kaleya. I just love that name. I didn’t know you had picked a name – I guess I missed that entry. ;) It’s a beautiful name for a little girl.
