Labor update

I've been at the hospital since 7 for my scheduled induction. Cervix was still closed so I received my first dose of Cytotech at 8. I am having pretty frequent contractions, so hopefully my cervix just needs a little nudge in the right direction. I've heard of anal-retentive....I guess I'm cervical-retentive. Ridiculous.
BTW, I am knitting.

So exciting! I wouldn't hold it against your cervix, I was dilated to 3 cm for over a week before Aaron finally came!

Glad to see you can knit even through labor!
