Third DC, but more nervous than with the other two. confused My very own live birth thread will take my mind off things, hopefully!

Ahhhh how exciting! hoping it all goes smoothly and quickly for you! I was induced with DD1 8 years ago and it was great smile Let us know how it goes xx

Ooh, how exciting! What time?

Swifey Mon 18-May-15 13:29:56

Are you on your own, or is your dp/dh/birthing partner with you? Why are you getting induced? Have you got some yummy food and drink with you, and comfy clothes? Maybe some music or DVDs? Best of luck! flowers

Good luck Cheerful! I'll hold your hand - this could be me in a few weeks time!

How are you feeling?

CheerfulYank Mon 18-May-15 13:36:11

DH is with me smile I'm being induced because I had issues withy last baby as she was big, and this one is also growing larger than they'd like.

They want me to eat (I'm in the US so it's breakfast here) and have brought me yogurt and a banana. I just want ice, though.

Have pitocin hooked up. It's all real now...

Gingerandcocoa Mon 18-May-15 14:35:52

Have you had the epidural yet?

SweetPeaSoup Mon 18-May-15 14:36:39

I'm 40+2 myself and had an induction with DC1 - it was wonderful smile Best of luck for a swift and enjoyable delivery!

SweetPeaSoup Mon 18-May-15 14:37:21

Epidurals aren't compulsory in the US, are they?

CheerfulYank Mon 18-May-15 14:48:22

No, they aren't. smile I will probably have one though.

This is my room. And my feet. <attempts to spice thread up a bit>

Moomaloo Mon 18-May-15 14:54:08

Good luck! I was induced with my third and found it my best birth experience. Nice room!

CheerfulYank Mon 18-May-15 15:24:10

Thanks smile I've just had some quite nice drugs. Feel a bit floaty. May sleep.

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Mon 18-May-15 16:14:18

Yay, drugs! Have a nice sleep.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Mon 18-May-15 16:16:02

CheerfulYank Mon 18-May-15 17:46:17

I'm at a 5 now. Still tired. Contractions a bit thicker but not unbearable yet.

May turn on the TV. smile

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Mon 18-May-15 18:26:39

Thinking of you - hope it's all going well!

BreeVDKamp Mon 18-May-15 18:30:22

CheerfulYank Mon 18-May-15 18:42:27

I'm so tired. Contractions thicker now. Epidural guy is assisting in a surgery and will be here after.

Shatteredmamma1 Mon 18-May-15 18:46:42

Good luck cheerful. Looking forward to hearing your news soon!!!

TheWoollybacksWife Mon 18-May-15 18:57:32

Nice room. Best of luck - have you made your mind up about a name?

I had an induction with my second and it was a pretty good experience apart from the fire alarm evacuation in the middle. I hope all goes well.

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Mon 18-May-15 19:06:18

Come on, epidural guy!
