As I write at 3:15 EST, Shey is 6-6 1/2 cm dilated, and little Rowan is reacting really well so far to the potocin which is inducing Shey into labor. Dr. Meyers has already broken Shey's water, hoping to help encourage her body to speed up the labor process. He is estimating that Shey will deliver around 5 p.m. and thinks the little guy is going to be around 6 to 6 and 1/2 pounds. I'd be willing to take some bets on those estimations if anyone is up for it. I'm going to say 6 p.m. and 6.8 pounds. if i win and you lose, then you have to provide some baby sitting services for Shey and I. If i lose to you, then you still have to provide baby sitting services...but i'll work hard on getting your name on the top 20 list of names we want Rowan to learn first. how does that sound?
anyway, thanks for all the thoughts, prayers, and support we've had so far. we wouldn't have made it this far without you all, and we look forward to sharing the joy of our little son with you soon. much love...and the next time i write, i'm going to be a dad. crazy.
