Drugs

Charlotte is doing very well. The anesthesiologist just finished giving Charlotte her epidural. For me the epidural is the part that makes me the most nervous. I'm nervous about other parts but it makes me the most nervous. Science is amazing, Charlotte has a smile on her face and looks great. I asked her if she's alright and she smiled and said, "yes, I wish I'd have gotten an epidural this early the other three times."

The pitocin has begun, slowly at first...

The baby "looks good" on the monitor the nurse says. Apparently she's been bragging about how good "her" baby looks to the other nurses at the nurse's station.
