We’re Having a Baby! Well…Soon

Alright, here is the deal. Meredith’s blood pressure was still a little elevated so the doctor decided to move ahead with inducing labor. They are going to start her with Cervidil to help the process along and then move forward with the induction 12 hours from now. After that we will just be in a holding pattern while we see how her labor progresses. The doctor did say that they wouldn’t like to let her labor go past 12 hours so it looks like within 24 hours Nathan will be out and in the world.

    Sounds like great news. All those official sounding words – "elevated", "inducing", "holding pattern" – you’re sounding like a natural. Just a last bit of advice – if you can, squeeze in a nap real quick, because the sleeping days are over for a while. Good luck and keep us posted.

    just wanted to say i came here through rwk a couple of weeks ago and usually simply read and don’t say too much….

    but you are touching on something i know a tiny bit about as i work as an OB Tech in a nearby childbirth center :)

    will be praying for you and your wife during the next day or so – usually cervidil for one day then pitocin the next. i highly recommend epidurals if she is not into pain and wants to be able to relax and let her body do what it needs to; if she is a tough cookie, then the breathing you two have practiced (you have practiced…right??) will come in quite handy. remember: in through the nose, out through the mouth :)

    blessings on this wonderful, expectant time.
