Progressing Slowly

Everything is going well so far, but progression is slow. She is still only 1cm dilated, but has thinned out a lot. They are starting a pitocin drip at 10:00 to create stronger contractions. The pill they gave her when she first got here created lots of mild contractions, but not much progress; and the baby didn't seem to like it very much at first either. The doctor said there is a 60% chance of C-section based on the circumstances she came in under (1st baby, no contractions, baby sitting high, not dilating much yet). We are going to go see how things progress through the rest of the night and may make a decision on that if we need to around 6:00 - 7:00 am. We'll keep posting as we can.

Poor Allison! We'll be saying some prayers for you guys tonight...that everything happens just the way it's supposed to. The doctors threatened to do a C-section with Charlotte, too. It was the moment they prepped Dre for it that Charlotte decided she would grace us with her presence. She's just as stubborn today! Love you guys...hang in there!

David, Dre, and Charlotte
