On the Move

MC (the birthmom) texted and said she was in pain, had been since last night, and "felt weird". I called her right away. She said her grandma was going to take her to the hospital. This was at noon. At 130 I texted to ask what was happening. She was waiting to be sent to the maternity ward. Once you reach a certain point (in the pregnancy) they won't see you in the ER. After another hour and a half she'd finally made it into the computer system and the triage area. She was able to get an ultrasound around 430. The baby is up to 6# something. She's up to 2 cm dilated. They've moved the due date up to Oct 12.

830pm...she just called. She's still in pain. The nurse said they're just waiting for lab results. MC said "results of what? you haven't done anything!" Turns out the no one has done a urine or blood draw. The nurse said "it's been hours!" Supposedly, they're "rushing" the results now (that they've performed the tests).

Physically, we're ready to go! Mentally....not sure. It's a good long drive from here. I'm a planner and HATE not knowing!

Hopefully, MC will get some relief and some answers soon. I think we're going to have a baby sooner than later!!


  1. My thoughts are with you and MC.... Hoping for a good outcome! :)J

  2. The not knowing is THE WORST. I completely understand.

    Can't wait to see pics of your new babe!!

  3. Good luck! I don't know if you're ever ready! I know we weren't. Now that Bryce has been home for a week, and we're completely sleep deprived, yet deeply in love with the little guy, we now know just how mentally unprepared we were!!! Trial and error - that's the name of the game. Good luck with everything - adoption is a beautiful thing! :-)
