She’s Been Admitted and There’s Progress

photo-240Here’s the update:

When we got here, she was only about 4cm dilated and 80% effaced.

They had us walk the halls for an hour and we prayed a Rosary.

An hour later, they checked her again and she hadn’t progressed very much. The options were: Go home, Get Petocin (no way), or have the membranes stripped on the cervix. Jennifer opted for the membranes being stripped and she immediately went to 6cm dilated, so they admitted her.

We’ve now been moved from triage to an actual labor and delivery room and Jennifer is in the tub.

I only have very slow dial-up, but I will update as much as I can. She’s doing awesome, and it was great news to see how she’s progressed in just a few hours.

    You are in my prayers today

  2. We are praying for you!

    Give Jennifer lots of hugs and remember transition is no fun, but that will mean your little girl is on the way!

  3. Keep up the good work, Jennifer. You’re almost there now. I’ll be praying for you to have a blessed delivery.

  4. Looks like the eggplant parmigiana worked!

  5. OK, things are going quick now. She was just checked at 8cm. Most likely a baby in the next 30 minutes.

  6. Praying for a safe delivery.

  7. Praying right now for all three of you!

  8. Yep, the membrane strip – did it for me too! Welcome Lily Grace! God bless you all.
