10:26 pm [Yesterday]
After a 2 hour break this afternoon (to let the baby rest) the induction is back on track. Elise has her epidural in place and the doctor broke her water at about 9:45. The projected delivery time is between 2-5 am but you never can tell about these things. Elise is taking a nap and I will try to do the same. It’s tough though with all the monitors in here – I feel like if I take my eyes off of them I’ll miss something!
To those hearty souls still up (and those who will catch the highlights in the morning)…
No more naps for us. Labor stats at 1:15 were 7cm and -2 sta. That means baby time is an hour or so away if things continue to progress. We’re wide awake and waiting for the next nurse-check at 1:45. Next update should include a name, weight, and picture so we’ll talk to you then!
