I'm being induced tomorrow!!

So, I went to my 39 wk appt today and saw the head midwife. She checked my cervix, I'm 3cm, 80% effaced, and baby is engaged. That's a lot of progress in a week, according to the midwife. That, combined with the fact that I've had tons of contractions that are making me constantly consider whether it's the real thing, I'm GBS+, and my last labor was super quick, she said I'm a good candidate for a gentle induction. She's afraid (and I am too) that by the time I realize I'm actually in labor that things will be moving really fast and I won't have enough time for the antibiotics and will arrive at the hospital ready to push.

So, I go in tomorrow night for a cervadil induction. We will not be using pit, and definitely not cytotec. She thinks I just need a very gentle nudge in the direction I'm already heading in. Apparently I'm very favorable and she expects an easy, smooth induction. Baby should be born in the wee hours of Friday morning.

It feels really surreal at this point. I'm excited and I can't believe it's really happening, but at the same time I'm a little nervous... positive vibes and prayers are appreciated!
