yesterday was not the day I expected!!!

Bethany went in the hospital monday night. They used cervidel to soften her cervix overnight and then in the morning they started her on pitocin. She had lots and lots of contractions all night and all morning.. but didnt feel any of them! They kept increasing the pitocin.. and nothing nothing nothing!!! finally last night about 8:00 they took her off of it to give her uterus a break.
. They let her shower and eat and then started her back on the pitocin around 10:30. I left the hospital around 11:00 hoping to be awoken by a phone call that she was in active labor.. but no! I called the hospital at 6:30 this morn and shes about the same as she was last night! only they hae increased the pitocen to 26 at that time.. she was at 9 when they took her off last night..
sooooo... I'm off to the hospital shortly..
keep us in your prayers.. I hate to pray that my daughter would be in pain.. but there needs to be some pain involved with those contractions in order for them to be doing anything for her!!


Till then.. these are the only babies I get to enjoy!!

(6 weeks old now)

I'll keep you posted!!

Keeping my fingers & toes crossed that by the time you get to the hospital, Bethany (poor lil' tired girl) will have delivered & your grandchild will be waiting for you! I'll check in later to see the latest! Love you, Viv!

Oh, I'm so sorry, Viv! Pitocin and I are old..."friends" (cough cough!) Not a fan of the pitocin! But, it was involved in each of my babies' births (and no epidurals, I might add!)

Wishing your daughter more luck today! Hang in there, Grandma!

Oh I remember waiting for my GRANDson to arrive ! It was taking sooo long and I told my DD she needed to get busy and do some pushin' to get that baby out :)
Can't wait to hear about the new arrival ...

Praying for your daughter. I went through this. Has her water broken? Don't let her go over 24 hours after the water breaks unless she is on antibiotics. I did that and both my son and I ended up with a blood infection.

Thinking of you and holding you in my prayers!

Praying for her Viv !!! They may have to do a c-section. My diabetic daughter had to have one. Hopefully things will progress fast and safe for her...
