Here’s the update for the post I wrote below, about the baby. Kat was to have her membranes stripped Thursday afternoon and all doctors in her clinic agreed she’d go into labor within 24 hours. She’s about 3 cm dilated. At her appointment Thursday the dr. decided he couldn’t do it after all, they were having a shortage of hospital beds! They’ve had a lot of babies born and the few rooms left they needed to keep for patients that went into labor on their own, so they couldn’t do a procedure to voluntarily bring on labor when they had a shortage of rooms. Everything is still a business decision I suppose. Several family members had already decided to come for the weekend since it’s a holiday Monday and she would have the baby this weekend….but alas, no baby yet! I left late Thursday night, spent the night with E and drove to Charlotte on Friday. That was a trip worthy of a blog post all on it’s own, with pictures! But the kids don’t have anything on their computer to size pictures down with so I emailed my sister Stacy to see if she will be ever so kind to me and size one down.
We keep hoping something will happen soon, have done lots of walking but nothing so far. She’ll go back to the dr. Monday morning, she’s wishing they’ll do something to jump start her labor then!

I’ll see if I can tell you later about my very eventful car trip!

    🙂 I saw E tonight and gathered that nothing had happened yet. We thought about calling (ha!) and chanting “dilate, dilate” but decided against it.

    Hope the baby comes soon. I like the name, Sam.
    Hope Kat is fine, too. Jeremy looks good in those videos.

    Just hope all goes well, and everyone is happy and healthy when the big day does come! Hope you’ll be able to stay as long as it takes!

    (A little hard to relate personally to what she’s going through…with every pregnancy I just had to keep praying for “one more day…one more day…one more day”)

    I look forward to hearing about that car trip. Though I wish it was uneventful for you.

    Boy – I haven’t checked blogs in a few days and didn’t realize things were so eventful in your world! Hope there’s a new baby in time to meet all of the out-of-town realtives before they have to head back home!
