It's perfectly normal! Especially if this is your first baby. I was the same way. Let people see you cry, you wouldn't be the only one that's done it. Just relax, your body knows what to do. I really hope that you go into labor before they induce you. I get nervous when I hear about inductions, because the EDD is just an estimate, so there's no telling if the baby needs to develop some more. I recommend eating before you go to the hospital. If the baby is in a good position to deliver vaginally, eat! They only tell you not to in case they have to put you under for some reason. Tell them you DON'T want Pitocin if your contractions are going at a nice rate. The nurse said my contractions were going great, and still gave me Pitocin. The contractions became unbearable after that. Our bodies know how much pain we can handle, a drug does not. Also be really nice to the anesthesiologist and nurses.Congratulations mama and GL!
