i think we are off to hospital tonight!! my wife isn’t excited cause she is dreading the birth process. I guess i can’t blame her:). But I am excited. I can’t wait to meet my son.
still working on photos from malakal and others and hope to have those up pronto.
ok, more later
so we didn’t go to hospital last night. Mary decided she wanted to wait a bit. We ended up sleeping till about 4 this morning and then we decided to go. We got there, they checked her out and said the cervix wasn’t opening up yet and that we should probably just go home. Then they suggested they could give Mary some sort of enima thingy (have no idea what this is) or a pill to help get things a-goin.
My wife is very hard headed. She doesn’t like foriegn substances be introduced to her body, which I don’t blame her for, and she will refuse just about anything unless someone can explain everything to her in very good detail why she must take a thing. The unfortunate part is most of the medical practitioners on this side either really have no idea how or why a thing works, or feel it is a waste of time to explain how something works and that a patient should just believe them because they are the “medical” expert.
Which is to say that after hanging out at the hospital for an hour and getting myself all excited about the birth, we packed up our stuff and came home. At least I managed to get a bit sleep and I think Mary did as well.
We have talked with our doctor again and are headed that way to meet him in the next few minutes. If he thinks we should try to induce, I sure hope he is able to sweet talk my wife into going through with it. Otherwise we may running back and forth to hospital for the next few days.:)
