We got to CHOP around 4:30 so we could get dinner before we checked in.
Went to a Panera Bread type place called "Au Bon Pain." Why they'd put a restaraunt in a hospital with the word "Pain" in it, is beyond me. We got up to the SDU at 5:15 and were shown our room. They're about to start Ashley on a mild inducer. They said it's basically a test run and aren't expecting much from it. They want her to get a good nights sleep because, tomorrow they'll start Potocin. The doctor said it's not uncommon for it to take a few days to work... Please pray that is not the case!
 Everytime Ashley get's needle work done they always have to do it atleast twice. The IV was no exception. The nurse went right into the vein and right out the other side the first time.
 All the nurses said if they went by the charts our babys' heart is perfectly healthy. We are praying it's not just the charts!!
We will be updating the blog often. Thanks for the prayers.
