    I totally remember your post, Christa! Something like ... "my water just broke all over the hall!"

    We're all here to support you Anna! If, however, you want to retreat inward during your labor do not feel any pressure whatsoever to update us. I knew you were all behind me during my labor with T but I didn't want anyone to know what was happening until it was all said and done. That was just me though. Seriously, if you want us all on speaker phone cheering you on, I'm there!

    I have an appointment in 20 minutes. They are going to want to do a check and I don't know if I want to do one or not. . . part of me is really curious and another part of me feels it's really very pointless since it doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot anyway.

    That's how I felt near the end too, and my curiosity won and I kind wish it hadn't, for what it's worth. To me, it was discouraging. Sometimes ignorance is bliss Hope it's a good appointment, either way!

    I hope your appointment went well! I'm glad I didn't get far enough into my pregnancy where I felt the itch to get checked. If you got checked just remember that it really doesn't mean anything! I did self checks and I swear I was high and tight the day before I went into labor.

    I caved. I'm 20% effaced and closed! I actually thought it was funny that there is absolutely nothing going on down there. I guess he's comfy in there, which is totally fine. I thought if I got checked and found out nothing was happening that I would be disappointed, but I didn't feel that at all. I guess because I know it doesn't mean anything. Everything else is great too, so another wonderfully boring appointment.

    I had a long conversation with my mom after I left the doctors office. She reminded me again that all 8 of her birthings went really fast. With me (her first) her water broke and 2 hours later I was born. With my brother after me, she woke up the morning after a routine check-up (where the doc told her she had at least 2 more weeks) and felt great and full of energy. She went on a crazy cleaning spree all over the house and that afternoon, after dad got home, she started having contractions. She tried to ignore them but my dad caught on pretty quick that something was going on and went and got my uncle to take them to the hospital. Mom said she felt like the truck wasn't even moving, but dad told her they were going nearly 90mph. They got to the hospital and the nurses calmly got my mom into a hospital gown and she went to go to the restroom. Mom said she sat down on the toilet and knew the baby was coming. She yelled out that the baby was coming and the nurses yanked her over to the bed, and were screaming at my mom to wait, but it was too late, my brother came right out before they even got a doctor there. The same thing happened with my youngest brother. So if I'm anything like my mom, I can hopefully expect a sudden and fast birth, which is fine for me!

    My brother is bringing my mom to my house this weekend. They are going to look at some houses in the town where we buried my dad, and where so much of my extended family lives, and then he's going to drop her off here to be with me. We also talked about dad. Mom had a bad day yesterday where she really was missing him and crying a lot. She also told me that my youngest sister was talking a lot about him and how much she missed sitting outside with him and singing 'Twinkle, twinkle little star' together. I didn't know it, but as my dad was dying my youngest sister was singing that song to him. He died listening to her sing that song to him.

    I have days where I can talk about him and think about him and I really, genuinely feel like I'm doing well with it. But sometime out of the blue, some thought will enter my head or I'll remember something about him and I feel the full devastation of losing him all over again. It's crushing and intensely painful. Anyway, I'm not trying to make this a tragic and drama-filled post. It's just been a very mixed day for me today.

    I did manage to get some things up on my Etsy store a couple of days ago, so I've got that running again. Hopefully, Kole will be an easy baby and I'll have time to sew after he gets here. Of course, there's the uncertainty of whether we'll be moving soon after the birth or not. It all depends on whether DH gets a job here or not, and right now it's looking like not, so that'll leave us moving to a new town where he has a standing job offer. I guess we'll see what happens. Right now we are just waiting for Kole.

    I'm glad it was a nice boring appointment, always good news. I'm glad you were not disappointed with the check and can keep in mind that things can change quick. Wow, your mom had some super fast labors. I hope that you are able to do the same and that your labor is smooth, easy, and quick.

    Yay for your mom arriving this weekend. So will she stay from then until Kole comes? I bet you both have days that are hard and days that are easier when it comes to your dad. It will be nice for you to be together during the next few days to both lean on each other and share moments of joy. Kole's arrival will be such a wonderful and uplifting time for you both. Your sister singing to your father brought tears to my eyes, but what a beautiful and peaceful final moment.

    Joy said pretty much exactly what I wanted to say. Just adding my hugs.

    I agree that those were some super fast births! Wow. Would be nice for you. You might even end up with that home birth you thought about. lol

    I hope having your mom with you helps you both. It's very normal to have good times and bad times.

    Woah. Your mom could pop 'em out couldn't she! I hope having her around allows you to relax in the coming days/weeks. Your sister singing to your dad is a truly sweet memory.
