Had a bit of an emotional night, ended up sobbing to Mr H for about an hour and I’m still not sure why. Then, around 12:30, I woke up with a major OW! People always say you’ll just know when it’s a real contraction and I didn’t quite believe them but now I know. Been up ever since, in the last hour they’re ranging from every 20 minutes to every 5, no real pattern just yet. And always less than about 20 seconds. So I’m guessing I’ll get to meet this little girl in the next day or so….absolutely crazy. Of course, an hour ago I was crying again that the new memory card for the new camera isn’t in yet.

Oh…and I have completely re-thought my approach to pain meds. I wanted to do as much as I could without the epi and get it only at the end. HA! Breathing my ass, please inject something directly into my spine as soon as possible 😉

And after posting this for you all to see, this better not be a false alarm…

    YAY! How exciting! Whether it’s a false alarm or not, we’re still excited for the progress.I want to marry the person who invented the epidural. In fact, rumor has it that I asked the anesthesiologist to marry me after putting me out of my misery with Megan. That’s funny since it was a woman. It’s extra funny that I remember it being a small Asian man. Which it wasn’t. Can you say “delirious with pain?”My scheduled c-section with Liam was like a slice of heaven. I’m never having more kids, but if I were I would actually look forward to the delivery — can you imagine that? Love the c-section.Can’t wait to hear how it all goes and to see your beautiful little girl!!
