I SO feel for you. It's been almost 17 years since my last boy, but I will never forget.
Both of my babies were way late, and both induced. inducing, is best to avoid. your labor will go better and likely be shorter if you can wait until you are "ripe".
Here's a funny story to amuse you while you wait.
So, I was hugely pregnant and baby was due in one week. I go to my usual water aerobics class. everyone asks, "aren't you about due?". "Yep. next week!"
next week comes, I am in the water aereobics class. "aren't you due?"
"yep! today is my due date!"
Next week; "what about the baby? aren't you due?"
"yep. last week "
(thinking, 'this could get tiresome')
So, the last few days, I could not sleep horizontal, only semi-sitting up on the couch with tons of pillows and every time I changed positions, I had to reposition all the pillows. you can't cal that sleep.
all night long, Braxton-Hicks contractions. Hubby was sleeping on the floor next to me , ready to drive me to the hospital. I kept waking him saying, "I think it's almost time. " But the contractions just hung out at 10 minutes apart. Soon as the sun came up, they utterly stopped. Like clockwork. and I went on about my day , with my 5 year old and my painfully huge belly.
Eventually, I did opt for induction. When I was TWO weeks past due date.
End then, only because I had so little sleep that I was just exhasuted and worried I would not be able to do the labor from such a tired place to begin with.
But, induction means that you go pretty quickly into the hard contractions, so you don't have time to get used to what they feel like and work slowly up to the pain levels. So, harder to take it in stride.
So, if medically you can manage the wait, it's always best.
I wish you a good night sleep. I used Benedryl, and it helped get me some Z's.
