Hee Hee... Whooooo!

Just an update:

Last night I walked into the L&D (labor and delivery) at around 9pm and we got the process started.

We signed the consent forms, got an IV and got ready to be thinned :) At around 11pm they gave me a "pill" that is inserted next to your hoo-ha and it makes your cervix drop and thin. Luckily I had alredy started moving to mid position, so when I got the pill I had already progressed.

After 2 doses of that pill, I started having steady contractions.

It is 7:30am and the doctor just broke my water and OMG it is the weirdest feeling!!! It feels like your peeing on yourself and people are walking in and out of the room.

Not to mention the contractions have gotten WAY stronger and WAY more frequent. I seriously thought I could handle more pain than this, but apparently I am a wimp. I have already gotten something that is supposed to "take the edge off" and LORD I am feeling it. I feel so LOOoooopy!

As of right now I am tired and in some amount of pain.

We will keep you informed once he gets here.

Thank you again for all your prayers and well wishes.
