Well..about half hour after L&D called saying no go for today, I started having contractions. Started at 10 min apart, then 8, then 5, and now anywhere as close as a minute and a half, to about 4 minutes apart. And they HURT! Like bend over take your breath away say a bunch of curse words hurt! We're going on 4 hours now...
I just made the executive decision to have my mum drive the hour to get Hailey and the dog. If they stop now I will be pissed. Not about to run into L&D, still managing, and will be so mad if we get there and its too soon and no progress...but I can't do this and parent at the same time! SHe's been watching tv for the last hour, and I just cajoled her into eating some dinner. DH has been plastering drywall in the basement, and he's just finishing up. This way he can shower and eat, and I can maybe get in the bath for a bit. Just want them to continue! If H is gone we can go walking too without worrying about her...
Anyhow...will keep you posted!
It's a GIRL!! Born this morning at 6:10 am after 3 pushes! 7lbs 1 oz and looks identical to her big sister, right down to the same birthmarks on her eyes! Has latched and nursed for an hour already. WIll update with birth story and pics later, I'm tired!
Good luck, I hope this is it!
Well, if its not then I don't want to go through the real deal! Contractions are about 2-3 minutes apart when standing, but slow to about 4 min apart when sitting. We're watching some tv, I'm having something to eat, then maybe around 10-11 we'll go to the hospital and see whats what.
Fingers crossed!!!! It sounds like the real thing to me
