Today marks the start of Day Three that The Boss and I have been at the hospital, waiting for the arrival of Baby Badass. We got here on Monday afternoon and started the induction process not too long after we were checked in. Since then, there has been little to no progress.
She's had plenty of contractions (some of them quite painful), and the baby definitely has dropped, but no matter what medication they use to get the ball rolling, her body has yet to dilate more than one centimeter. There was a period of time where one nurse thought she had begun to dilate further, but her doctor later said otherwise.
This experience so far has been a lesson in patience and learning to let things happen how they will. The hospital staff here have been great, and while the combination chair/bed I have to sleep on is akin to sleeping in a coffin, they're doing what they can to make sure I am comfortable, too.
We're hoping for more progress today. Follow my Twitter/Facebook feed for any updates, and with any luck, Baby Badass will make her appearance soon.
