As planned, they started Alicia on pitocin at about 5:15 am and she's just been sleeping through the contractions since then. She said when the contractions get so bad that she can't sleep anymore she's going to start screaming for an epidural.
I hope everything goes well today! Good luck!
Thanks Heather! Well, I'm sorry I forgot to update everyone, but Alicia's water broke at about 9:00 am today. After that Alicia asked for the epidural and she's been comfortable enough to sleep through most of her recent contractions. At this point Alicia is making progress and the baby seems pretty impatient to get out, so we're excited about the way things are going.
YAY!!! You are doing such a good job at updating! You guys are going to have a baby today!!!!!

Time to push!
