I’m sitting here in the hospital, gearing up to give birth. Lucy takes after her daddy (late) so we’re doing the induction thing. Mr Pilver and The Max are here keeping me company. So far it’s boring, but the induction drugs will start soon. I’ve got a needle shoved into my arm and I hate this needle with all of my heart. I’ll update again of I’m not screaming too loudly.
947am:Coffee, water, apple juice, and ultrasound goop. Mmmmmm.
1138am: this is Mr. P. He’s taking a snooze while I gear up for the big pain. Contractions are every 2-3 minutes but they don’t really hurt. Soon my doc is going to break my water. At that point I think the pain will come. Whee!
443pm: at 3pm I was told I was at 8cm. Just 15 minutes ago I was told I’m at 6cm. I AM in pain now. Took me fo-ev-ah to type this paragraph. Also, the above pic is the bar I get to grasp if I decide to stand or squat while pushing. Like a ride at a carnival.
We did it!!! 10:43 pm. I have a pretty little girl!
