We're exhausted right now, but sometime soon we'll post pictures here and at her own website: www.eviemarie.com. Evie is my new favorite baby, Nicole is my new favorite super hero.
One of the remaining challenges is that the nurses have enough concern that they want to keep the heart rate monitor on the baby, so Nicole is bound to the bed right now. She thinks she might prefer to walk around, but that is not an option at this point.
Priority number one has been and always will be the safety and health of the baby, but it is hard not to be concerned for Nicole's comfort. I don't doubt the staff here is doing their best for the baby, but bedside manner for mothers here at SCH is lacking...

Everyone's thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated.
Well, for the last hour we're consistently back at five minutes apart. Our tenative plan is to see if it remains this way for another hour or two (unless they get 3-4 minutes regular). If this keeps up, when 11pm rolls around we'll start thinking seriously about heading over to L&D. We're staying very conservative right now since we got burned last time, but things are looking pretty good.
We went out for some errands and to grab dinner. We tried Pollo Campero and it was awesome.

Right now Matt is giving my belly a "pep talk" and telling the baby to come out. I'm no doctor, but I don't think it will work!
I'm gonna take a nap for a little while. Believe me, we'll let you know if something happens.
As always, we'll let you know if anything happens.
I have to admit, yesterday when we went to the Dr. we packed up our hospital bag convinced we'd have the baby by now. Maybe the anticipation got the better of us. Oh well, rookie mistake.

Nicole's contractions are ranging from 7-12 minutes apart. Not significantly progressed from a couple hours ago. She's doing very well.
The sun is setting here in
It’s been an unseasonably warm day, highs near 65 degrees. I’m fortunate that church has given me the next two Sundays off and I’ve been able to work ahead on some of my schoolwork, thus this week is mostly free from obligation outside of the baby. For as “big” of this day is to be, it has been relaxing. We’ve taken this “free” afternoon to rest up and finish a few chores. The task of the evening will likely be to continue to relax, as we don’t know what this night will bring.
