I am in labor now!
Yes, I’m blogging in labor.
While I’m not live streaming the birth this time (hospital birth remember?), I know everyone is waiting to hear about the labor developments so I’ll update you while I am here at home laboring before we head to the hospital.
Labor began this morning (39 wks & 3 days pregnant) as I was getting the girls on track for heading off to school. I was having back to back, painful contractions and back pain. My water hasn’t broken.
I even remarked to my husband “gosh, am I in labor or what?!” at one point while prepping their breakfast but with the many contraction spurts that have gone nowhere since before Thanksgiving I was just over paying attention to things I guess.
So, Nathan went off to work and I continued to get the girls ready for school while drinking my coffee and waking up. By the time I needed to drive Everly to school I knew things weren’t quite like my previous, lame contraction spurts. Anyway, I drove Everly to school with 6-7 min spaced contractions, cam back home with Adalyn and got a bunch of our crap ready for the hospital. As I write this things are about 4-5 min apart.
Nathan is on the way home from work and he is grabbing Everly from school, my doula is on the way over to my place and then we’ll all try to determine when we want to head to the hospital
I’ll update this post as I have things to share and if I’ve got the ability to do so, so stay tuned.
