Coming to you LIVE from...

...Labor and Delivery at Oregon Health & Sciences University to let you know that Sydnei is on her way. I'm in labor and weathering contractions that are about 3 minutes apart lasting a little over a minute each time. 

I had a NST appointment this morning where they monitored Sydnei for over an hour.  Her heart rate was dipping each time I contracted every 6 minutes plus my BP was elevated.  They did an ultrasound and found my fluid was low so the decision was made to induce. Fortunately, my body is already in the labor process so I won't need a whole lot of the Pitocin hormone to get things going!

We'll keep you posted!

Awaiting anxiously for the blessed news that sweet Sydnei has arrived. On pins and needles. Congrats to you both. You will be wonderful parents to sweet Sydnei(as you are to Sophia) and Sophia will be a great big sister. Can't wait to see the little bundle of joy and will be waiting by the phone.
