So, after the CTG today, and a quick checkup, the Dr. let us know that Svitlana isn’t progressing as quickly as they would like, so we’ve decided to induce labor. We’re just home now to get all the stuff to bring with us, then we’ll be heading to the hospital to get started. I’ll try to keep you updated here, since we should have WiFi in the hospital, I should be able to post updates. We’re also bringing cameras and so on, so keep an eye here for updates. Till then!
17:02: Nothing to report yet. They gave the inducer at about 15:00, and now we just have to wait. More waiting. The staff are great so far, and everyone is very nice. Svitlana has a nice roommate to stay with (we took a double room for now), with a brand new baby boy. Very nice to have WiFi here, though. Informed all the moms and dads of what’s going on. Watched Look Who’s Talking. Svitlana is walking around, trying to get some exercise.
18:13: Had some food. Was actually really good. Topfenknödel with Zwetchkenröster. Svitlana wasn’t able to finish it all, so I ate the rest. Is it wrong to eat the dinner of a woman on the verge of going into labor? She’s started to have some cramps, so it seems like it’s starting to take effect. Watching Seinfeld.
20:26: This is going to take a while. Just had another consultation with the doctor – she says that it’s progressing, but administered another tablet to move it along. According to the midwife, it almost never starts with just one tablet. So now, she’s on the CTG again, to make sure everything stays ok. We’re definitely going to be here a while before it starts to get really interesting. I have a chair here beside the bed, where I expect to be sleeping tonight. Still watching Seinfeld.
22:54: Just finished a CTG again. Everything is fine so far. We’re gonna try to get some sleep.
