even quicker update

This is M writing, (popped home to walk dog and grab forgotten items) K asked me to write a post for her.

No baby yet, but soon we think/hope.

So far not much has gone according to those hopes. K's contractions became overwhelming and ended up exhausting her last night, so to the hospital we went.  Medical interventions are the name of the game there and we succumbed  to the necessity of the situation.  We are hoping still for a vaginal birth but understand that we might not even get that.  On that note, here are some positives to end on.

--K is doing awesome, she worked though 32 hours of horrendous contractions all by herself and was really brave, I'm quite proud of her.  
--Our doula (a good friend) has been great, sitting in front of the door to stop nurses coming in and poking and prodding and overall just being a great support to me.
-- Looks like we'll have a baby by the end of the day one way or another.

Its been a little heartbreaking to see our birth plan slowly chipped away at.  I know that a birth plan is inherently not a plan and just hopes and wishes but its still tough to let those go.

I'll post with news when I can, seems my iPhone doesn't love posting to this site, but I'll keep at it.

ps... I haven't slept so if this is all wonky and nonsensical, please forgive.
