Let down by the car

February 4th, 2012

The last hour has been the scariest. Caroline and Oscar are fine and hooked up to a monitor. It says Caroline is in 40% pain. And Oscar’s heart is going at 147 beats/minute.

I went to get the car and it wouldn’t start!! I think the battery is flat. Our fantastic neighbours came to our rescue and got us to the hospital.

After they’ve monitored Caroline and Oscar for a while they’ll examine Caroline and see if she’s in full on (i.e. no-going-back) labour, or if the contractions will ease off again…

Caroline is being really brave, but it’s all quite scary and unknown.
