Rachel Anneliese Heiss
So, this morning when Nancy woke up, she felt a little contractionny. She went to her last day of work, even getting taken out to lunch at the Brick Oven by her department. At 1:30 she IMed me in a panic, saying she didn't feel very good. At all.
I left work early and we went home. On the car ride there, she was having contractions like every 5 minutes and was in crazy pain. We stayed at home for about 15 minutes until she was crying and cringing with pain.
We got to the hospital at 2 and were immediately admitted.
She was already dilated to 9 cm.
Epidural went in (actually a spinal thing...not the official epidural) at 3:20ish.
Good progress the whole time.
