12:14 am - I can't sleep.

4:55 am - Checked in at the hospital
5:45 am - Getting the IV...yay for rolling veins...
6:07 am - Starting Pitocin
8:33 am -- Closer to 3 cm and Dr. G just broke water. Contractions have been picking up.
9:00 am - Got my epidural; requested a popcicle.
9:15 am - Gran arrives!
9:30 am - Where is my popcicle?!?
9:40 am - One popcicle is delivered followed by two more!
9:45 am - MiMi is here!
9:55 am - Why am I feeling weird?!? Oh, probably b/c my bp is 80/45. I nearly passed out. The nurse adjusts my meds to bring me back to reality. Apparently this sometimes happens following epidurals. This was a new one for me...
