Friday: A Spot of Trouble

A bit of a scare today just to keep us on our toes.

Geri had some mild spotting along with some more obviously labor-like pain. She went to her local hospital, where they hooked her up to monitors and used the modern medical technique of having her lay on her side. After a few hours a doctor examined her and determined that she was dilated to 2cm, which is 1cm larger than before. Sarah and I went on high alert. Apparently the side-laying did the trick, though, because after a few more hours the new pains subsided, there was no more spotting, and they sent her home.

So no babies today, although Sarah and I will continue to jump every time the phone rings . . .
