Induction

We are back at the hospital now, and have been since 7:00am. I stopped having contractions so close together late yesterday afternoon, so they are going with the induction now that I am nine days late. It's been really slow going since we got here. The nursing staff is all really nice, although we did have some issues getting the IV in which wasn't fun. I have pretty tough veins that weren't cooperating so after three painful and failed attempts, they finally called an ER nurse up to get the job done. Luckily she was able to get it in on the first try, and right now I'm just receiving fluids for hydration. Then they will start me on the Pitocin to get the contractions going. As much as I don't want the drugs in my system I'm really ready to get things going. I'm pretty scared of this whole blessed event, so please keep us in your prayers for a quick & complication free delivery!
