Alright, after some very intense contractions Gretchen has received and epidural and is resting. She’s pretty tired after being active all day and we’re hoping that she’ll be able to take a little nap before the pushing starts. Everything is moving pretty quickly though, so we’ll see if that’s possible.

The rooms at the new hospital here are pretty nice, although there is some sort of problem with the water here and we aren’t allowed to flush the toilets or take a shower. Other than that we’ve had a relatively uneventful time so far and it looks like Sammy’s little brother will be arriving sometime in the AM hours on November 4th, 2007.
