Admitted to the hospital

Jen has finally been admitted to the hospital. She had her epidural about noon, and now is best friends with the anathesiologist. She is feeling 100% pain free now. Jen is dilated to 5cm and the doctor just broke her water. The doc wll be back to check on her in an hour. I will leave an update later. She is in the birth center at Valley Medical Center in room 2304.
Jeramy (the DH)

Jen is dilated between 6&7cm. The doc is giving her pitocin to help her dilate more. Hopefully this will all be over with tonight.

5:38pm-not much change

6:51pm- No change, looking like a C-section tonight.

That's great news! I was trying to keep watching for this the past few days and hadn't checked here today until now. Since this is several hours after your noon hospital arrival maybe you're already a mother as I write this...?
Wishing you the best, Jennifer, and hope to talk to you soon. Will tell D-Daddy if he doesn't know yet.

P.S. just saw Jeremy wrote an update. Guess one day is better than two, but then what do I know... anxious time anyhow, I'm sure of that.
Early congrats to you both!

I hope that all goes well and that a c-section isn't necessary.
