An Introduction to Induction

So it is official Gillian and I are still in the hospital and she is going to be induced. I will not go into all the details, but Gillian’s test came back with high protein, which was the final piece of the puzzle for the doctor to declare it pre-eclampsia. She is on an IV with medicine to help the pre-eclampsia. She is also being given a drug to help her dilate. Once she is dilated far enough, they can actually induce labor. This is all a much longer process than I thought and Gillian will most like not be delivering until tomorrow. Gillian is doing fine, but she is uncomfortable, the drugs are making her a little woozy, and she is bored! So…we wait. More news as it comes.
