Red face Inducing tomorrow

So I had my Dr appt today and thankfully lil miss is still head down. I am 3cm but still 50%. The Dr thinks she will be around 8lbs and he said instead of waiting another week we should just go ahead and induce OR I could opt for a C-section because I tore and had to have an epistiotomy with my DS. But I am just going to induce. Too scared of a C-section but I'm so afraid of inducing. I know it's going to hurt DUH lol but when will they allow a epidural? I mean when I thought I'd go into labor on my own my Dr said anytime I want the epidural they will give it to me until I don't progress but if I progress then they'll keep it on. Is it the same with a induction? My DS is SO SO SO excited and I am too. Just very very nervous. I go in at 5:30 tomorrow morning. It's so not real still and it's happening TOMORROW!!! AHHH!!!!!!! Please encouraging words I am so scared!

Re: Inducing tomorrow

Good Luck!!! Thats exiting you get to meet your baby tomarrow. Sounds like your Dr has a good epidural policy so you should be comfortable. Let us know all about it when you come home.

Re: Inducing tomorrow

Goodluck, I'm sure all will go well, I got the epidural after 12 hours of labour, before I was even 2 cm dialated yet...they say the first 4cm are what takes the longest, after you hit that 4cm mark it goes much quicker...you are already almost there, I predict a pretty quick induction and labor for you. Can't wait to hear all about it. Best wishes!

Re: Inducing tomorrow

I can't wait till you post again and tell us all about it. I, myself, am not scared yet. I am so excited for him to come. I guess I should be nervous since I am going with a c-section on Friday. Not an easy decision to make. But I think I would be more afraid of inducing.

Re: Inducing tomorrow

Thank you all for your kind words. Tonight I went out to dinner with my sister and her two girls, my Mom and my DS. My DS is WIRED! He is so excited. He isn't going to come up to the hospital until around 10am though. I just made sure I had everything packed. I know I need to rest or sleep but I don't know if I will be able to. I'm just scared, anxious, excited. It's still not real to me. That's the hard part! I've had 9 months to prepare and now I feel like it's not happening. Well, I will be back... in a couple of days
