Waiting...

Since I have nothing better to do at the moment, I figured I'd post an update. They did come in to get me started on the Pitocin, but after about five seconds came in and turned it off. I guess the doctor decided she wanted an ultrasound first to make sure the baby was still head down, and then they decided to hold off on the Pitocin and give me something else to soften the cervix first. They have already been here and done the ultrasound, everything looks good there! It's going to be a very long day for us and I don't anticipate getting much sleep until after I give birth. Now that I think about it, probably not much then either. I totally understand now why some women choose to birth at home! At the moment there is not much going on, I'm just waiting for the medication to get things started... it seems like a lot of waiting is done around here. I know I'm not their only patient, BUT it's kind of feels like so much time is being wasted that could be used to get this going. Wow... they must be reading this as I write because she just came in to have me get back in the bed so they could start the meds. Sean will probably be doing most of the updating from here on out. Who knows... I'm just glad they let me have my laptop and that they have wireless internet to help pass the time away. The first medication they give me could take up to twelve hours to do it's job, so they may not have me on the Pitocin until later tonight! I pray it goes much quicker, but I guess we'll see.
