Here we go

In the past two days I've suddenly developed blood pressure issues which are likely due to preeclampsia. And so I'm here in the hospital and they're about to induce me. One good thing about all the preterm labor stuff is that they think it'll make the induction pretty easy and they might be able to just do it manually and without drugs. Anyway, one way or another, the baby's going to be here very soon!


  1. Jen-
    We're so excited. I just wrote on Facebook that I expect you will be keeping this blog throughout the labor. Focusing on the blog, rather than labor, is a good distraction, and perhaps a new labor technique that you can share with others!
    Pacing here in MA.
    Love, Mom

  2. I know you are excited and scared at the same time. I am praying like crazy and will all night.

  3. Yay for baby! We're all so excited to meet him!

  4. Dear Jen,

    I'm so excited for you and Iggy and the baby!
    We're thinking about you every minute!

    Love, Carol and Patrick
