update #1

i’m at the hospital. my water was broken at 8:20. not fun, very painful. i guess my cervix has moved further back, making the water breaking process a lort more painful. so not too many contractions at this point. i am getting some, but nothing really significant. my doctor should be here soon, i’m guessing she’ll start me on pitossin.
you may be wondering how i’m able to blog right now. my parents are here, along with sean’s parents and his older sister, and my dad has a wireless receiver that i am using. don’t you love technology? its actually a bit ridiculous – earlier sean and i were watching a movie on his laptop, we’ve both been on the phone multiple times, i don’t know how many cameras are in the room – seriously, the amount of techy devices in this room is silly, buut so convenient. oh and a webcam is on its way.
i’d better go for now, i was just informed that my blood needs to be drawn again (yipee!) due to an error with labeling my last draw.

update – dr was just here, pitossin coming up next.

    Hang in there Lindsey! I’m praying things move along quickly and easily with the pitocin now flowing.
    My labor with Shawn with the help of pitocin was actually a lot less painful than my labor with Shannon and no pitocin!

    thanks for the update! i’ve been praying! it will be good to have the pitocin and have things move on. i understand the difficult water breaking process. my doc tried that with zeb to get things moving, and the same thing happened with me, and it was so incredibly painful (and his head kept popping back up to make it harder), that the doctor finally gave up and just went with pitocin (breaking my water at the very end). much better when it happens on it’s own!!

    Hey Lindsey! Congratulations!!! Your girls were wonderful! Thank you for letting me hang out with them tonight! I have some really cute pictures that I will have to email you. Tell Sean that they went to bed super easy (lily fell asleep in my arms while we were reading Cat in the Hat!)Oh, and this is the first thing Gracie told me (very nonchalantly) “mommy had to go to the ‘hossible’ because my baby brudder is stuck inside of her and said he won’t come out and so they got to go pull him out.” I almost fell of my chair I was laughing so hard! Anyway, congratulations on the new little guy! I’m so happy for you guys!

    Been praying for you a lot, and hoping that no news is good news! I’m checking your blog obsessively, but I do totally understand that giving birth is pretty consuming – and doesn’t leave much time for blogging!
