They sent me home! LOL Induction still set for Tuesday, AM

CJ and I got all prepped, showered, cleaned, did our last pictures of the belly. We get to the hospital, they hook me up to monitors, I go through all the paperwork with the nurse (who was so sweet), and she does the cervical check: I'm at a 3 dilation and about 80% effaced, so no gel is going to be needed for "ripening". YAY! That is a GOOD THING! Keifer is trying to help mommy along and do things as naturally as she can (Ironically, on the drive to the hospital I told CJ that none of this PG was "natural" from the IVF to use of donor eggs, to the induction date). The nurse checked with the doctor on call, and he said send me home to rest and we'll come back in the AM, first thing. I am first on the docket for induction (and they have 4 set up and 2 C-sections). Let's hope I'm not TOO dilated and can still get an epidural (*wink wink*).
So we are home, I'm going to snack, and then they also gave me an Ambien to sleep through the night. I have a feeling 6 AM will get here very soon!

Good for you! My induction is next Monday and they aren't having me come in the night before- just that morning- so I guess that's because I'm already past 3 cm... anyway I'll be thinking about you tomorrow and can't wait to see pictures of Keifer!

I'm checking back constantly. Is Keifer here? Is Keifer here? Hope that you're snuzzling with your daughter tonight (it's Tuesday night)
