Back the hospital we go…

Ok last time I checked, i.e 4am, I was still having contractions every 4 minutes, with medium pain that shot across my whole belly and lower back. I fell asleep at 11, woke at 1 and 3:30, still having contractions, but not strong enough if I could sleep through em like that. At 3:30 I had to wake up and eat as I was famished, so was Dave so we got up and had a bite, then retired again and I crashed again from 4-6:30, now I am up and showered and getting ready for another morning at the hospital.

Sadly, contractions appear to have peetered off this morning, they are still comming but right now are not as regular or intense. Grr.
So the plan is that she will check me this morning, if I have hit a Bishops Score of 7, (I better have, I was a 6 before the second, stronger dose yesterday and just 9-10 ish hours of regular uncomfortable contractions) then she calls labor and delivery and I wait for a bed. They release me BACK into the world and I wait for a call that there is a bed for me, at which time they will bring you in, break your waters and see were that goes, then starts the pitocen if things don’t move just from a membrane rupture. It’s all a bit frustrating cause it if it were not for a bed shortage, they would take me right me in this morning if I am at 7 and start…but if your not already in active labor then you have to wait, and that could be til flippin tommorow morning which ultra sucks. At least it’s outta my hands and I know were doing our best.

Here’s hoping we have a baby today…I wish there was more I could do to push my body along, beleive me when I say I have tried it all yesterday, EPO, walking, sitting on exercise ball night interspaced with squatting, using the breast pump for 1 hour-1o minutes each side. I seem to have a body that likes to hold onto my babies, the 101 ways the midwife tried to induce Evan didn’t work either if you recall, that included 2 episodes of accupuncture, 3 membrane sweeps, homeopathic cohosh, clove essential oil…

Also-today is the 24th. Today is 2 years and 1 month to the day Evan was born.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.
