Im up at L&D and got the foley balloon put in about 20 minutes ago. My blood pressure was a lil low when i got here. Shes doing awesome and for those curious about the foley balloon..it wasnt that bad being put in, felt like an exam. :-)

Update:so far everything is going good. It seems to be working between the contractions and blood (sry if tmi). I caved and asked for something to help me sleep. Doc thinks she will be here before noon tomorrow. :-) and thank yall. I will definitely keep yall updated and post pics when she gets here.

She got here at 945am weighing 7.10 and 18 1/2 inches. And has latched like a pro.

I had the foley balloon with my daughter and it worked awesome. I wasn't dilated at all when I went in. Had the balloon placed, it fell out a few hours later and I was 5 cm dilated. Nothing happened after that, we just waited and waited for HOURS. Finally they broke my water and she came right out with just a handful of pushes. No epidural, just like I wanted! It was great! Good luck to you!

Little catheter they put in your cervix. They feel 2 balloons up with water one is on the inside and one on the outside of your cervix it puts constant pressure on your cervix to help dilate to a certain point.
