So it’s 2am and we’ve been waiting for something to happen since midnight. At the doctor’s yesterday afternoon, we discovered that I’ve lost a bit of weight and apparently, Noah has lost even more weight. 🙁 Our doctor recommended that we induce labour to be on the safe side and so here we are!
The pellet has been inserted and I’ve been hooked up for monitoring on the CTG machine. Don’t ask me what CTG stands for, in fact, I don’t even know if I’m using the correct terminology here. All I know is that I have to be monitored. I’m supposed to wait for either my water bag to burst, for bleeding to start or to experience contractions, but so far, nothing. La dee da…
When we checked with the Admissions Desk this afternoon, there were three Premier Single Rooms and five Single Deluxe rooms available. Sounds good, we thought. Yeah, right. At 11pm, there were no single rooms left! We had the option of leaving me in a double room while C went home or paying through our noses for a suite. Despite being particularly needy and emotional, I tried pretending to be brave and asked C if he would like to go home instead. Thank God that he said no! He knows me so well! THIS is one of the many reasons why I married him. 🙂
The suite is pretty nice but not worth the price, in my opinion. At least I get to have C with me, albeit on a sofa bed some distance away. But just being able to hear his snores is comfort enough for me.
The nurse has given me the all-clear to sleep now, so after two cups of hot milo and a pack of biscuits, I guess I’m going to have to try and get some rest.
Praying that labour will begin very very soon and that it will be over quickly too! C says he’s more anxious than excited so we pray too for peace and a safe delivery.
