A shot in the ass

Surprise! We're STILL at home. We went to the hospital last night after a set of painful contractions, and they told us that our now 3-day long labor is called "prodronal labor", a.k.a. labor that doesn't progress quickly. No shit, really?

They gave Mariah a shot of morphine in the ass to let her sleep and sent us home. We slept great and now M. is contracting every 10 minutes.

The plan for today (suggested by the nice nurse last night): see if actual labor starts this morning by itself. And if it doesn't go to our doctor this afternoon to have her plead our case to the hospital to get us induced today.

Oh, and I got a $40 parking ticket this morning! Yay!
