At the hospital

It's Thursday night and Andrea and I are at the hospital. They've got her hooked up to some machines to monitor the baby's heart rate and to take her blood pressure. They've put some goo on her cervix to soften it up and get it ready for labor. We're going to spend the night tonight and in the morning our doctor is going to come in and break her water. That should get the labor moving along and hopefully before long we'll have a baby!

The hospital isn't very hospitable for daddy. The couch pulls out into a bed, but it's probably a foot narrower than a twin bed... I'm not sure how much sleep I'll be getting on it, and I haven't gotten much sleep recently with all my nervous anticipation. This morning I was up at 4 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep.

Well, hopefully Andrea and I will both be able to get a reasonable amount of sleep before the big day tomorrow. Wish us all luck!!!

I am very, very excited to become an aunt!!!! Good Luck Annie and Shawny! Make sure Shawn spoils you and pays the price while you are in labor. Everything is his fault for the next 18 hours.
With Love- Aunt Abby
