Yes, I said 13 days to go and no, I didn’t miscount.  I got a call from the doctor’s office this morning informing me that they have scheduled my induction date.  The woman on the other end said, that she was just calling to inform me that they have scheduled my induction for the 21st and that I should arrive at the hospital the evening prior at 8:00 p.m. to begin the induction process.  I giggled and told her I’m already AT the hospital.  Without skipping a beat, she responded that she should have paid closer attention and that the doctors will fill me in on the formalities later today.  Just before I hung up the phone I realized that she said the 21st and not the 22nd.  Assuming she was looking at some sort of formal paper that I was not, I said…wait, you said the 21st, not the 22nd?!  She confirmed that I heard correctly and I hung up the phone.  If the nurse weren’t in here when I took the call I may have celebrated by jumping on my bed!  Okay, maybe I wouldn’t have jumped on my bed but you get the idea.  I was excited.  Continue Reading Day 75: 34 Weeks–13 Days to go!…

The end of this marathon…no…ironman race of a hospital stay is near! We have an official induction date! The fellow came in today and said that they scheduled my induction for 3/22. That is 15 days away!!! Yippeeee! We were hoping for 3/21 since that is typically the date the Persian new year falls upon each year (it is 3/20 this year) but it really doesn’t matter. I am VERY happy we are now talking induction rather than c-section. I had a million and a half questions for the doctors but the fellow didn’t seem to have answers for me. I asked if cervidil is safe to use since I’m ruptured or if we would start with pitocin. The fellow said that my doctors are better to discuss that with me but cytotec is safe to use on ruptured patients. I just did a VERY preliminary google search on cytotec, skimmed the results and do not like what I see about that drug.
