August 13th we ate dinner at Linda and Doug's house (my in laws) in hopes that baby boy schieber would be here soon. Official due date had passed and was set for August 10th. We were to be induced on August 15th. Went to bed and woke up Tuesday August 14 at 3:00am in pain. I told myself this is not labor....but I was kind of hoping it was! (I did not want to be induced!) I woke up Drew and said if the pain does not go away by 4:30am then I am going to take a shower and call the doctor. Pain was worse... woke up around 4:15 to take a shower. Doctor said to come on in. We had everything ready and in the car drove to the hospital st.lukes east in Lee's summit. We were checked in at 5:55am. The original room they checked us into was a shared room! I was sooo upset and was thinking I am going to be like Rachel on Friends and have to see all of these women go in and out of here before I get to have my baby. Little did I know that was just the holding/triage room. We were dilated at a 3. By the time we had our nurse for the day and was moved to our room, we were at a 6. I got the epidural and life was a lot better about 20 minutes after the initial shot. All four grandparents were there by now and Ashlee had stopped by before work.
