Give me a little P-I-T

Greetings from LDRP #4 at Methodist Hospital ... (Erin P's former room).

We arrived shortly before 8am, got checked in with the front desk, and admitted. Our nurse put a very cute sign on our door that said, "Welcome Nate, Allyson, and Little Sophia." (Perks of going somewhere when you know people in high places). The doctor came in and checked me. I was 1 cm dilated, 50 % effaced, and contracting somewhat on my own in a "fairly" consistent manor. She decided to skip the Cytotec and head straight to the Pitocin. They have cranked me up 1 notch, and I am contracting about every 2.5-3 minutes. Let's hope these are "effective and productive" contractions. We will try the Pit for about 4-6 hours and see the progress before a recheck.

PS> For those that are anxious to know, we took our last profile pic last night but weren't able to get it posted. I have it ... promise!

Allyson, Nate, and Peanut

I'm so excited and continuing to check the blog faithfully. I've been praying that you progress quickly. Maybe by now Sophia is already here!!!
