Last year: I checked myself into the hospital at 8am wearing my "big momma" maternity pants...never to be worn again! After many hours of a pitocin drip, and little "action," finally things started moving...around 5pm. So, we kept on going for a few more hours and then rolled ourselves over to maternity to spend the night and return to labor and delivery the following morning. I should point out that I was due on the 17th, and I kind of wondered if that was the right date given my history of a relatively irregular cycle. All of my ultrasounds measured the right way though...so maybe he was just cozy.
I made a pie tonight too...certainly beats hospital food and pitocin. The Ambian that they gave me last year was nice, though.
