Today is D-DAY!!!!!
Who's your daddy? I'm gonna be today!!! I feel fortunate to be spending some time writing this morning from room 5126 at Medical Center of The Rockies. Heather's water broke at 3:15am this morning. After sitting up in bed, she calmly said, "D, it's time to go to the hospital". "Sweet! It's game time" I thought. So, we took our time packing and getting ready to head out. We weren't in a rush cause she wasn't contracting yet. About a half hour ago, they started her on potosin to nudge labor along a bit(They've done this to stay on schedule because baby must come out within a certain period of time because her water broke. Her cervix is dialated a bit more but it's still in a posterior position (sitting back). So, this medicine has definitely increased her contractions to a greater intensity. She is feeling great, more discomfort during a contraction of course, and on a walk right now with Kristen and her mom. I have been waiting for this day for a long time and can't wait to post the next blog with a picture of my son! WOW!
