Guess What !!!!

No baby :(

Things haven't really progressed since last night's post. The Dr. thought it best to try and get some sleep over the night and then reassess in the morning. Jamie did get a little rest, as did Charleen and me.

This morning, Jamie started Pitocin, which increased the contractions, but increased the pain quite a bit as well. After a couple doses of 'crack', we decided it was time for the epidural. The anesthesiologist came in and worked his wonders... I didn't even pass out!

The drugs are now kicking in and Jamie is much more comfortable, so soon the Pitocin should start up again. Hopefully we can get this little girl out soon.

Highlights of last night

That's about it for now... More updates to follow.
