Passing time the night before an induction?

So I go in tomorrow morning at 8 am to get induced. I am so excited and have been cleaning and organizing non stop for the past week. I have nothing left to do and I am so anxious to get things going. How do I pass the time until tomorrow morning? Any suggestions? I'm just so excited its all I can think about!

  • grab a book and start reading it. If you are not into books then find a puzzle to start

  • Definately sleep. Inductions tend to take longer labor wise which means no sleep. The night before mine I took a bath and laid in bed. Even if you don't sleep try and get some rest. Good luck!

  • I took a nice long bath, and then went to bed early since I had to be there at 5 a.m. I was glad I went to bed early since once I was in the hospital I couldn't sleep at all.

  • I was in the hospital the night before I was induced. I had been there on bedrest the entire third trimester. Anyway, I got moved back to L&D and was given cervidil to get ready for the morning. It sent me into active labor and I delivered 3 hours before my scheduled induction
