Thanks! The only reason that was given was "Failure to Progress". Is there a medical term for it? I can't remember. But that's what I was told. My Dr assured me it wasn't the epidural, though I have a feeling it contributed to it. Also the AROM... and I just wasn't comfortable in the room flooded with family. How was I supposed to relax? It was a plethora of disasters. I think I was in prodromal labor, but I wasn't *ready* for birth yet, and I should have just stayed home instead of having intervention after intervention. You know what they say though, hindsight is 20/20!
Cindy you are so sweet It does just seem like yesterday we were charting and checking our cm! LOL! DH and I met at work. We work(ed) for a General Contractor/custom home builder. My DH is basically the Field Mgr but also oversee's the remodels and so is also a Superintendent. I was the Exec Asst to the Contractor himself. It was a great place to work, and an even better place to find love At the time I started working there in 2001 (shortly before 9/11), I was already married. But the marriage was really rocky, it was abusive, and I was really unhappy. Hector, aside from this career, was also in the Air Force Reserves/National Guard. (He retired after 20 years of service in 2005!) Anyway, after 9/11, he was called into duty for an operation in Turkey. He spent 4 months there. But every Friday afternoon, he would call into the office to get an update on everything and to stay abreast on his jobs. (Can you say dedicated workaholic? lol) We were just coworkers before he left - but while he was gone, during these phone conversations we had, we became friends. I could tell he was homesick and so we would just talk and talk, sometimes for an hour or more. Thinking back I bet he burned through quite a few expensive phone cards! LOL! And it was fun because of the time difference, he would call when it was close to midnight his time and he and his buddy's had gotten back from the local bars. Sometimes he was pretty smashed, lol! Those were some fun conversations. Anyway, when he came home, I was so excited to see him because we had formed this close friendship. Gradually we got closer. He'd find excuses to come into the office right before we closed so that he and I could have talks about nothing. He knew I was married but was unhappy, and he was just supportive. A few months later a girlfriend convinced me to leave my XDH and move in with her, and so I did. It was a rough, painful divorce. But Hector was always there, always holding my hand, letting me cry, letting me yell, letting me just be me. Not too long after moving in with my girlfriend, he and I shared an unexpected kiss! And that, my friends, is how it all began
We began our courtship in late 2002, moved in together in 03, got engaged in 04, got married in 05, had Alessandra in 06 ... and here we are today!
What the heck??? How'd 36.1 weeks go by so quickly??? Holy smokes, lady, you are so close!
I've never heard the whole story of how you and Hector courted. How sweet is that! Not only do we share the same wedding date, but our DH's both inadvertently lured us away from the wrong men. Thank God for these stable, calm, military guys
How's Hypnobabies going? Is MIL taking Aless so you can get some time to work it?
Last night I went to the movies with some friends (for possibly the last time this year!) and saw Juno. Great movie, btw. Lots of laughs. I had nachos with jalapenos and extra fake cheese, a small popcorn, peanut m&m's and a large water. Ha ha. Then when I got home, I was too stuffed with that junk to eat dinner. So I had a banana and called it a night. Then this morning, I had a protein smoothie for breakfast as I was on the go. And a brownie. And some more peanut m&m's.
This kid is going to come out made of sugar and covered in salt.
We have been having an explosion of births on my March 08 board all of the sudden! I am so happy for the moms... but it has me feeling ... what's the emotion? Nervous? Oy.
I think I am finally ready to have this baby, I mean, I am finally *prepared* to have this baby. I am most certainly ready to have the constant achiness and BH end! That's for sure! LOL. I have all of the LO's clothes washed, the cosleeper is set up beside my bed, my hospital bag is (over)packed, my Birthing Preferences are done, I'm preregistered at the hospital, I am done reading my books, I am in the Maintenance phase of Hypnobabies... I'm ready I think! I am so excited about my upcoming birth!
