sorry for the blogging slump (although does it really count as a slump if it’s only been two days?)
ANYWAY…We spoke to Mel on Tuesday. She had been uncomfortable all weekend and when she mentioned this to her Doc on Tuesday, the doc checked and said “well no wonder, since you are now 3cm dilated”
Nothing drastic is happening though. They gave Mel her final Progesterone shot and sent her home with instructions to go to the hospital if she feels anything different.
don’t you just LOVE specific instructions?
At any rate, Mel is home now. Counting contractions. They aren’t close enough to really time them yet. Apparently “active labor” can go on for weeks!
I wouldn’t have believed it, except for all these blogging friends I have acquired recently who are either in the final stages of delivery or have just completed it and almost all of them had LOOOOONG “active labor” stages. See, God MADE me blog so I would have all these friends and so I would know not to panic.
So we are not panicking. We already had tickets to go out and see Mel & Steve this weekend anyway.
Please pray for safety for all of us: Mel, Steve, Ginny, Martin, Me and especially for good judgement and discernment on the part of the hospital staff, doctors and nurses.
