Well...Sunday September 30th at around 11:30 PM...moment after Jordy had embraced my belly and whispered to the wee one that we were ready (mind you that Jordy probably hasn't touched my belly in 2-3 weeks...) MY.WATER.BROKE....I was so excited! I thought it would be just like the movies...water breaks....ACTIVE labor almost immediately and then WHAM...baby! Yea, not so much! My water broke...upstairs just on my way to bed...called T.lerch...she said to see if baby moves and call back...called back an hour and half later...baby had moved...and she asked what I wanted to do...so I tried to go to bed...nothing was really happening...maybe a few braxton hicks...but that's it..nothing intense...the ANTICIPATION was the worst. So, we arranged for Whitty to be picked up from school Monday by the Stitts...we got up...finished packing our hospital bags...took Whitty to school...went to Jackson...got checked in T.Lerch's office..2cm and effaced and extremely anxious...still no pain...so T. lerch gave us more options...she said we could wait it out til around 3 or 4 pm and then see what happens or I could head to the hospital now and start pitocin!!!!
|Wanna guess what I did?|
I figured I had a natural "pitocin" baby with WHitty...so what's one more pitocin baby right?
