It's 9pm Sunday night here & will be going to hospital tomorrow afternoon to start the induction process (gel). If I haven't gone into labour by the next morning, I'll have my water broken. In less than 48 hours our family will go from four to five.

I can't get my head around it lol! Even after two children it all feels very surreal. I don't think I'll be getting much sleep tonight I'm so excited & nervous but also feeling guilty for leaving my other two. I know they are all normal feelings but feeling a little overwhelmed right at this moment.

**update: Well I've been admitted & gel has been inserted. I'm soft but not dilated. Just like my previous two, so will be interesting to see my progress overnight.

Update #2: OB broke my waters, I'm 3-4cm dilated, contracting every couple of minutes but not strongly yet.

FINAL UPDATE: After five hours of labour she's here! Lucy Milla weighing 7lbs 12oz. I didn't need the drip, though during transition I waved the white flag & requested an epidural. I thought I've done it twice without one, I want to relax with this one... Well didn't happen of course she was out in three pushes minutes after asking for the epi lol! So glad it's over & I didn't get one. I feel great now, did have a bit of blood loss & a few stitches but otherwise all good!
