Doctor just came in and examined Jen.  Great news as she’s dialating well now.  6cm to be exact.  Right now they are wheeling in all kinds of equipment, getting ready for the delivery.  It’s getting pretty exciting now.  Jen’s aunt Marie brought me a large iced coffee, so I’m ready to go.  Apparantly I have to help hold one of Jen’s legs up in the air during this whole thing.  I wasn’t sure I volunteered for this…lol  In about 2 hours, (10pm) The Doctor will be back in for another checkup.  They keep adjusting her Pitocin up and down to keep contractions going along properly.  She doesn’t really feel any pain.  In great spirits.  We are tring to get her to rest and nap.  Easier said than done.   I have to clean up the room a bit and prep also for delivery.

    Try to take it slow and take in every moment. I got good butterflies in my stomach because I know what you are going through. Best feeling on the planet when they hold her up for both of you to see. Enjoy! Sounds like we may be visiting tomorrow.

    Ok Jen is about to push a HUMAN through her uterus and you don’t think you “volunteered” to hold her leg during the process? C’mon Jer!

    Jen best wishes for a successful and wonderful delivery!!! Both of you enjoy and take in the beauty and love around you!

    There is nothing like seeing your

    child for the first time.

    Forget cousin, I feel like I’m going to be an aunt! I’m so excited!!

    Lots of love to you both.

    YAY!!!! 6cm down, 4 more to go. You’ll be pushing that baby out soon.

    Jerome…Dan did not realize he volunteered for holding one of my legs either. He made it through, and even cut the cord, I’m sure you’ll be ok. 🙂

    Jen…try and rest up, pushing takes a lot out of you. I know you’ll do great!

    We’re thinking of you guys. Wishing you a speedy deliver!
