Inducing

Well, the baby has dropped like I thought, but I’m neither dilated nor effaced. Also, my blood pressure was a few points higher than last week, and the baby’s heart rate was a few beats slower than it has been. Because of this, the nurse practitioner was worried about stress on me and the baby. She consulted with my doctor and moved the day of inducing.

I’m checking in at 4:30 pm on August 7th. They’ll give me oral prostaglandins every four hours and begin a pitocin drip at 6:00 am on August 8th. Unless, of course, something happens sooner.

In other news: we’ll be moving Saturday – drop by if you’re in the area 🙂
