Blogging from a hospital bed…

I’m not addicted to blogging, like my husband would like to call me.  It’s that we have lots of family and friends who can’t be with us today and I want to try to keep them as updated as possible.  Technology can be such a blessing and I’m hoping that it helps close the gap that is between us.

noonish:  Here’s the latest:  I haven’t started pit yet, but am on the antibiotics that I need before we can have Carson.  I’ve actually progressed and am now 3 cm and 50% effaced.  Wow!  I can’t believe it.  Maybe the shoveling helped after all!  Will try to update soon.

I started my pitocin drip at 1:00 and am having contractions every 5 minutes or so…not anything too painful-yet.  I’m sure that’s about to change.  My doctor is only here until 5:00 and then there will be a different on-call doc.  I sure hope to have this baby with my current doctor.

4:30pm Update:  They broke my water about two hours ago.  I just got my epideral and I’m feeling great!  Halfway there at five centimeters, and hoping to have Carson in a couple hours…

7:30pm update:  Well, Carson seems to be stubborn.  Only progressed one centimeter in the last hour, now 8 cen. and 80% effaced.  Changed docs and nurses.  Nurse Maureen says he’s “sunny side up” and we’ll have to wait a couple more hours yet.
