Not all inductions are bad as long as your body is ready. Some
People induce before their body is ready so it's unsuccessful. Some people go into labor water breaks and all and still need pitocin. So don't fret if you go that route :)

Ladies can I ask a stupid question? This is my first pregnancy and fist baby so I'm just wondering what real contractions feel like?

Well I timed what I thought were contractions. For an hour they were every 8-10 min lasting approximately 25-40 seconds. Then they died off the next hour every 15-18 minutes and now they stopped. I feel completely normal now. He's kicking away. Were those BH contractions or real contractions? I don't know the difference. Lol

I'm just so stressed because last time I showed up already in labor for 20-21 hours & they still hooked me up to pitocin...maybe I needed it, I'm not a doctor or expert or anything, but the labor was long and about as bad as it can get without losing baby or ending up with an emergency c-section if that makes sense. So I'm just really freaking traumatized that it'll be a similar experience & I'll have another long labor just to end up with a c-section this time around. I know in reality the only thing I can really do is wait & see what happens when the time comes, but every time my body starts having contractions like I had at start of labor last time, I start thinking, "OK, this could be it." & when it's not I start freaking out thinking of what might happen if they have to induce :(

How many diapers would you recommend for a newb? Like, about how many times a day do they need changing? I just don't know how many to get. lol

Depends on the baby, usually the average of 10 a day is suggested.

That's about what I was thinking. I have 11 newborn, so I may just get a few more and be done with it.

For cloth diapering? How often do you plan on washing them & letting them dry? It's usually suggested to have at least a 2 day supply worth in your stash, but if you have disposables or something like G-diapers as back up then it won't matter...unless of course you're totally against using disposables of any kind even if you get in a bind.

While he's in newborn I'll be washing everyday, but when daddy has him disposable will be used (unfortanetly) until I can convince him otherwise. lol But I do have onesizes also that will hopefully fit him somewhat.



Oh and I'm thinking while he's in the newborn diapers, we'll be using disposable at night. Just until his os fit well enough.

Then yeah, it sounds like you have enough but a few more never hurts :wink:
