    Went to the doctor today and mentioned that my headaches had gotten worse, and my blood pressure was high so doctor told me he's just gonna go ahead and induce.
    Started with cytotec(?) To soften the cervix and if favorable will start pitocin at six in the morning.
    So nervous. But excited and scared all at the same time.
    They said I do have pre eclampsia. :(

    Thanks ladies!
    October - I know I'm so excited but nervous. I started crying because baby will be here this week. I can't believe it.

    Thanks everyone. Am having Contractions but not feeling most of them so they're not really doing anything. Hoping to be favorable tomorrow.

    They broke my water around 7 this morning. Had some back pain and when they broke my water i had a panic attack, but then they gave me some pain meds in a iv and got calmed down again. Blood pressure and LJs heart rate is good, its just a waiting game now. Im only at 1 cm so its gonna be a while but, We'll have a baby for sure by this time tomorrow :) if I've not delivered within 24 hrs they're gonna do c-sectiin, but lets hope that doesn't happen.

    About 7 hours later and I'm 2 - 3 cm dilated and 70 % effaced. Slow but definitely sure process IV pain meds are amazing they're knocking me out. Trying to refrain from getting the epidural sorry for any typos I can't see straight with this medicine.
