What to expect with an induction 🤔


Hi mamas! Today I am 40w1d, I had my 40w check-up yesterday. Amniotic fluid levels were still great and I passed the NST. When the doctor did my cervix check, she said I was 1.5cm dilated but my cervix was still kind of long. She did a membrane sweep for me, wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. All day/night afterwards I was crampy and started losing my mucus plug. Woke up this morning and felt totally normal, lost more of my plug!

We go back Thursday evening for another check-up, and if I haven’t gone into labor, we are scheduled to be induced on Monday. We were told to be at the hospital by 7pm Sunday night to start Cervidil, then the pitocin will be administered starting Monday.

Any advice on what I can expect if I do in fact end up being induced? I would obviously LOVE to go into labor on my own but I just have this feeling it’s not gonna go that way.
