After the plumbing had been placed and verified, we knew things had to start moving. We went out today and found things had been moving quite well. I did not realize until this week that our slab is a "waffle slab", and in the pictures which follow, I think you will understand how it gets its name. This style is especially advantages for strength when such large areas are being poured compared to traditional slabs. Further, there are steel beams at the base of the "waffles" to lend strength and stability for load-bearing walls. Here are some pictures as we happened upon our site today.
