The anesthesiologist was just here and got Brandy hooked up to the epidural. It's amazing the position a pregnant woman is asked to get into to get the epidural inserted in the back. Head forward, shoulders slouched, knees together. Brandy equated it to doing yoga. The 'forward pregnant swan' or something I suppose.
The contractions are continuing without her feeling them as much. The cussing has slowed. Brandy's laid back and is being hand-fed ice chips. MERA is still high up there, so now it's a bit of a waiting game.
