We have arrived at the hospital.
It is 9:00 pm on January 11th. We arrived at the hospital at 7pm. So far they have only drew my blood which was a nightmare. I am waiting for them to start me on Cervadil to soften my cervix, and then in the morning at 8:30am they will start me on Pitocin. I am having pretty bad anxiety. The doctor came in and did an ultrasound and checked Elisha's heartbeat. He is doing great and is still very active. Ok...its now 9:15 and the nurse just gave me the Cervadil. And she also check and I am not dialated at all...so it looks like it may be a long night. She did however give me an Ambien to help me sleep tonight. I was blessed with a Christian nurse that offered to say a prayer when we arrived at the hospital. Hopefully this feeling of anxiety will subside soon. I just got my bag packed an hour before I left for the hospital. This feels all so unreal to me right now, like I am in some kind of dream that I will wake up from. I am praying for peace. I am so nervous. My Ambien shouldnt take too long to kick in so I am going to take some pictures and video and I will report back in the morning. God Bless and thank you for checking in on us.
