It's time to eat some dinner... Here's what it looks like now in our room - with Dana hooked up to both an IV and a monitor. The monitor tracks both Baby K's heartbeat (the 138 below) and Dana's contractions (the 9 on the monitor below). When Dana has a contraction, the "9" can go up into the mid-20s.
It's with this backdrop that we have just enjoyed our dinner. Chicken sandwich and fries for me - grilled cheese and soup for the mom-to-be. Here's a picture of Dana enjoying the last supper of being a mom of one!
When Karter was born, I was semi-chastised by my family for posting a lot about where my next meal was coming from. What can I say? I was concerned with the basics... So...this will be one of my final posts about food.
What's next? The doctor came around 6:00 - and things are starting to progress. Dana will probably get an epidural around 7:00 or so...as things are progressing quickly...
