Second Verse, Same as the First

Things were going well yesterday/last night. I had an interesting roommate situation which I will someday publish in a short story format. Let me just say I have never heard the f-word or the term "baby daddy" used so much in such a short amount of time.
So I was all settled in for the night, awaiting the arrival of my roommate's baby daddy, when complications started again - worse than they have been so far.
The staff here was great. They quickly monitored and assessed the situation, and in very little time I was wheeled back to labor and delivery. They gave me another shot for the contractions. The doctor on call determined I was not dilating, but he wanted to keep me in this section should there be an emergency or anything else they would need to do quickly.
So we are back in labor and delivery until they decide it is safe to send me back down the hall and monitor me a little less. I have been back on the monitors since a little after midnight last night. All the medical professionals say Buddy is looking great on the monitor. My dr. ordered some more blood tests to see if they can figure anything else out.
My cell phone cannot get a signal for some reason in this room I am currently in, but at the time the wi-fi is working well.
We continue to just wait and see what is going to happen next. Just when things seem to calm down, everything starts over. We are thankful that even though we didn't understand why they kept me in the hospital yesterday, we now know that it was much easier getting everything assessed last night being here rather than driving in from home - and much less scary as well.
We will keep you updated as we know more.
