The Induction

I know I've been MIA, but I have been reading I just haven't been doing a lot of commenting.

So, I'm here! At the hospital and the Cervidil is in. When my OB checked me I was still only 50% effaced, and still posterior . Dilated to about a 1. Come on Cervidil! Now I'm in the monitor for the rest of the night, which I like. I feel like I'm keeping an eye in him, but its making me more nervous. I can't stop looking at the heart rate! He's very active, but there was a moment when the nurse came in because his heart rate fell down low. His baseline seems to be at about 110-115, but when he moves he gets up to 150-160.

I've had a few rocking contractions, but nothing evenly spaced. I've noticed the cramping is getting worse now (it's about 12:15am). They offered me ambien to sleep, and sleep wouldn't be bad, but I'm not really into taking anything. It freaks me out.

C just had to go out and buy batteries for his blow up mattress pump. I kinda have to laugh, because I always coordinate these things and he bought this himself, I didn't even look at it, and wouldn't you know's battery powered. I felt so bad for him when he figured it out!

As a side note, my mom bought me these adorable blue leopard print jammies...I love them!!! And because I'm not laboring yet, they let me wear whatever I want so I'm rocking them!

I cannot wait to meet Jackson. I have so many emotions that it's hard to even put them in words. I am thinking about our Wyatt and I know that he's making sure his brother makes it to this world safe and sound.

The last time we were here it was such a painful experience. I know this is going to be a wonderful, amazing experience, but being here brings up so many emotions. In the past few days I've had many flashbacks to my delivery of Wyatt. The sadness was overwhelming. And still is. I am so thankful and excited for Jackson and missing my Wyatt.

I can't wait to meet our second boy...
