quick update

All has gone well today, the cerclage came out a little after 5 and Dr.K said I needed cervidil because I was only a finger tip dilated. Around 7 the doctor came in to do the cervidil but they cancelled it because I am over 3cm and 50% effaced already. It is nice that I already have the epidural, am hoping to get some sleep and have the baby in the morning but I am not sure baby Gordon wants to wait that long...we will see!!! We are, of course, giddy with excitement. Will keep you posted as we can!!

Good night Katie, good night baby Gordon, good night Jeff,good night to all those sleeping out in the waiting area, hope you all have a good night sleep and wake up fresh and ready to bring that little one into the world.
Don't know if you all are doing a baby poll, but just in case I gave my guess to Matt & Amy.
God bless you all.
