Laboring to Avoid Induction

So it seems that our little "f" (note the excessive use of the word "little," did you know Avery was 9lbs 8oz?) has a sense of humor or a healthy competitive side. My doctor penciled me in for an induction tomorrow.

After weeks of false starts I am now in about the fifth hour of contractions...it is beginning to feel like a game of chicken between her arrival and a pitocin drip.

Cross your fingers that the little rascal beats the little bit of medicinal intervention.

Oh, Mama. Every day I hope your blogs won't show up on my reader. Not because I don't love hearing from you but because I hope you're in the hospital bringing lil F into the world!! Here's to her coming on her own... keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

Whee! I was just going to leave a sympathetic comment on your last post because I know how much the waiting sucks. My second kid was 2 days late and it felt like an eternity.

Best of luck during the labor. I know she's going to win the race against medical intervention.

Dude, I was totally kidding when I asked you to wait until I got back from vacation to have the baby. But, I'm back! I trust things are well under way.

It's working! Wave $20 or a Webkinz! No bribe too large, if it keeps you from having to have Pitocin.

Kelly said...

Yeah! Go, Amanda, go!

Crystal said...

Wahoo!!! May you be be contracting like the wind (yeah, I don't know if the wind contracts) or even better...
I hope you are holding little "f" right now. :)
