Change of Scenery

We are, in fact, at the hospital.  We got a call as I was on my way home from pseudo-working that there was an opening.  Some lady apparently delivered between yesterday and lunch time today, so here we are.  After some light paperwork, the nurses came in to take blood yada yada yada, and then Dr. Gunby showed up for Stage 1 of our induction process, which was to give Courtney the cervidil. This will soften her cervix and prepare it for "the big push."  She's having contractions constantly after having sharp pains late last night.  These are hurting a bit more than the ones over the weekend, so we're hopeful that this is all just really good timing.  It's taken me about an hour to write this because I've been helping Courtney get up to use the bathroom, shift sides, etc., so just imagine how long last night's video is taking.  Laura Crawford just brought me some Church's chicken, so I'm gonna scarf it down before I get called back into action.  Stay tuned for more.
