Carrie is at L&D

Txt from her:

Hey Lesley. I am in the hospital now for monitoring. They are going to start pitocin soon. I will probably post updates to Facebook but not to preg.org.

Her amniotic fluid levels went way up and baby wasn't moving as much as they'd like.

I will keep everyone posted. she will be updating fb too.

She posted on facebook this morning that they stopped the pitocin overnight so she could get some rest. They have started it back up this morning & she hopes to be holding Evelyn by tonight.

Update: At 3pm est they broke her water. There was meconium in it & evelyn flatlined. All is well now. They are monitoring her (evelyn). As of 2 hours ago carrie is still hanging strong & had not had anything for the pain.

Hopefully everything goes smoothly for her. That would be scary that Evelyn flatlined- would they not do a c-section in that case to get her out asap? Will keep them in my thoughts tonight for the rest of the delivery to go smoothly.

That just made me feel physically ill to hear the baby flatlined. UGH My thoughts are with you and baby Evenlyn today Carrie. I hope the rest of the labor goes smoothly and you're holding that precious girl safely in your arms.

As far as I know Evelyn is fine. I am not exactly sure what happened to make her flatline. Could have definitely been a technical glitch. =/ Sorry I don't have more details.

Well, I am sitting pretty with an epi and I am 9 cm dilated, so almost ready to go. Evelyn is doing fine. At first her lines on the monitor printout were flat. She just wasn't showing much variation in heart rate and they talked about the possibility of a c-section for a bit, but she turned it around and things are fine for now. Hoping to update again soon!

Saw this on FB and it explains the flat line. Can't remember what time this was posted but I bet Evelyn is here by now.

Sorry about any misunderstandings I created w/ the flatline. Thank you for clarifying Jessicah. I can't copy & paste from fb onto here b/c one is on my phone & one is on my computer.
