2Mamaz Baby Watch Plan...

Hey everyone!
I did an update, but realize not everyone reads the pregnancy update! So, we are going in TOMORROW at 7 a.m. PST for my induction! Due to some favorable changes of my cervix, we 'get' to go straight to pitocin as I am already 2-3 centimeters dilated! We could've waited until Wednesday, but honestly, I can't imagine how much of a difference it would make and one less day of anticipation/anxiety seems a good choice at this point.

@ball.and.chain will be my 'labor buddy' and will keep you updated as I did with her birth! Hopefully things go smoothly! I love you b&c. but I have no need to one-up your 54 hour induction!!!

Thanks to ALL of you here for the love and support on this journey. It's been a long one :) and I know once we've got Simone it'll all have been worth it, but it wasn't easy and I'm not sure how I'd be here without this board and all of you who've been my biggest fans in my darker days. Thank you so much!!

xxoo
