The countdown is on!

Ok, tomorrow is my 39 week appointment and I am scheduled to be induced on Tuesday (March 31st) at 4am. I am a carrier for Group B Strep so I need to get antibiotics four hours before delivery. I am so horribly nervous and hoping I go into labor before this. The only problem is with my third child, from the time I reached the hospital and the time I delivered was only 40 minutes, and as much as I would love a quick and easy labor, I actually need the four hours for the health of sweet Zoe. I am going to talk to the doctor about pain management options because I am just no hero. I don't have a very high tolerance for pain.

Last Friday, I was dilated 2cm, I had my bloody show over the weekend and was really hoping I would have delivered by now! Maybe tomorrow I will have more progress!

I have been plagued with migraines. On Monday I went to Labor and Delivery where they gave me stadol for the pain. Unfortunately it took me two days to get over the yucky effects from the stadol so I am hesitant to take it during labor, but I am sure "in pain Kirsten" might be desperate.

I could use all the prayers I can get!
