So my doctor started the process of inducing me yesterday. I would have rather waiting for baby to come on her own but I have gestational diabetes and they said that it was for the safety of the baby. So the first day, yesterday, I got the gel, had some contractions and was generally uncomfortable. I didn't sleep all that great and was back at the hospital in this morning. I was dilated to 2 cm and doctor wanted to break my waters and put me on a drip but I said no that I wanted another day of the gel to give myself more time. But today I have had LESS of a reaction to the gel. I have had a few contractions, but nothing regular or more them I would call "mild". I know tomorrow she is going to want to break my waters again and I don't know what to do. The cramping in enough that I don't really sleep so I am just getting more and more tired. I don't understand why I have to have pictocin with the waters being broken. Isn't breaking the waters an intervention on it's own. Guess I just needed to vent my disappointment and frustration. I figured that this would just go smoothly and labour would be natural, this just isn't what I wanted.
