It's 6:30am--10:30am EST--and I am about to take a shower and get ready to go BACK to the hospital. We went in last night at 10 for another dose of cytotec, which worked its magic and got things going pretty good (as far as I can FEEL, anyways). We stayed for a few hours to wait and make sure I didn't go into full blown labor, and eventually left around 2am. My contractions were about 3 minutes apart, but I still wasn't in a lot of pain so the nurse wanted us to come home and get some rest. We are supposed to be back around 8 for another dose of cytotec, unless I get there and they check my cervix and I am dilated and my contractions are what they want to see--then we will just continue on with labor!
I have been in a little pain since we got home. I say 'little' only because I don't know how bad it can really get, but from what I have heard it can get excruciating, and since my pain isn't close to excruciating yet, I will say little. But I'm very uncomfortable and have been all night, meaning about 1 hour of sleep for me-yay! Luckily Jason is getting his rest, because I need him to be rested up so he can support me :o)
So that's it for now! Hopefully we will see some progress and this will be the last dose of cytotec and we won't get sent home to 'wait it out' anymore :o) Paislee is almost ready to make her debut!
Prayers for a quick and safe delivery and a healthy baby GREATLY appreciated!!
