We're having a baby!!
I'll say it again.... we're having a baby!!!
My contractions were very intense this morning when I woke up around 6:30. I decided to eat something then see about going back to the hospital, BUT I couldn't make it through... I ate in the car.
We get to the hospital and see my doctor in the parking lot. I had a contraction so bad that I needed to stop in the middle of the lot. He followed us into the hospital and said he'd probably just go ahead and admit me. I told him my contractions had been three minutes apart since 4pm YESTERDAY. He said we'd go ahead and break my water.
I started getting nervous!! But excited...
They almost immediately broke my water. I didn't hurt at all.
The contractions started coming much more intense!! Like, unbearable! I was proud of myself for breathing through them (because I'm normally a breath-holder), but they were getting to the point where I was doubling over and moaning. And they were one right after the next.
Yes, I got the big E. And nope, don't regret it. The atmosphere and environment in the room has done a complete 180. (I'll go into more details when I write her birth story)
Any way... so I got here at 8ish, and it's now 12:30pm. They gave me pitocin to speed things up. At the last check, not too long ago, I was 3-4 cm and 100% effaced.
SO.... There's going to be a baby very soon!!!
My mom and B are with me, thank goodness. And B's family are on their way. My dad will be here tomorrow.
Thank you, everyone, for all your continuous prayers. I'm truly grateful!!
Next time I post, I'll be a Mommy!!!!!!!!!!
