You guys! What a week! Wednesday I went in to work. I was running late from over sleeping. The night before Snookie was being really figity and kept waking Scott up and he'd wake me up and it was just horrible. So I ended up sleeping in the recliner for a little bit, but I hate the recliner (still need to buy a new couch) so that didn't last long. So anyhow, went to actual work late. Not too long after I got there we were having our monthly Zoom staff meeting and Jessica called me and said she thought her water broke. What! Well that's exciting! So I left the meeting and packed up my stuff and drove over to the hospital to meet them. They recently changed the rules that there can be two people for someone in labor which was awesome!
It took a little bit of time but eventually they let me in with their super sanitary "take a mask" that everyone just touched.
When I got there they had just hooked her up to the monitors and got her changed into a gown and all that. Then the fun began. She was having a little bit of contractions but not a ton so they eventually put her on Pitocin. Not too long after she started having back labor, which I knew meant that the baby is not in the right position. I asked if someone could try to move the baby but apparently they only do that in the movies and for home births or something. So lots of painful back labor and not a lot of progress.
