Not another false alarm

Yay! My water has broken, I'm hooked up to an IV and there will be a baby at some point. Of course, I'm not dilated at all, the baby is way the hell up there and my cervix is not thinning in the slightest. There's a distinct possibility that I'll have to have another c-section, since they don't like to give heavy-duty induction drugs with a VBAC. We'll see. The midwife has to talk to the OB on site and I'm waiting to go upstairs still.

I can't believe I'm blogging from the friggin' hospital. This is bizarre.

Oh, and they don't have NESN here, so I can't even watch the Red Sox while I'm sitting here waiting. And I can't eat anything. So, blogging and surfing is all I got. Thank god they have a wireless connection, otherwise I'd be even pissier than I usually am.

You know, I've wondered whether hospitals had wireless. I know, what a weird thing to wonder.

Good luck to you and the little one on the way!

Even later than Sandra...

Hopefully things have moved along by now. Maybe it is all over, and if not I hope it is soon.

Can't wait to hear more!
