Peanut, where are you? IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Can you see the Peanut in the picture above?

There he is content to be in his mommy's tummy.


But that didn't last forever...

CAPTAINS LOG:

3:05 am

I woke up with contractions that were definitely different then the Braxton Hicks I've been experiencing. I think we're going to be having a Halloween baby after all. I guess B wins the bet, he thought so all along.

4:13 am

I can't go back to sleep, contractions are coming every 6 minutes or so. We're supposed to wait until they are 5 minutes apart for at least an hour before we leave for the hospital. They are getting so intense and I'm getting a little nervous. We're about 20 minutes from the hospital here as long as we don't need to go during traffic. I'm debating waking B up and heading to my parents who are only a few minutes from the hospital. But then everyone will be up and waiting for something to happen. Then again, I baked lime bars and set some aside for the nurses. I could make up a plate while we waited. Or I could have someone else make up the plate. Am I talking about lime bars right now?


4:43 am

Still 6 minutes apart. If I were like my mom I'd already given birth by now. Her labors last about an hour after the first pain. When she had me, she went in to her check up and was already dilated to 5 without having felt any contractions at all.


4:58 am

I'm tired and keep thinking I can take a little nap but napping thru contractions just isn't happening. That's it- that one really hurt. I'm waking B up.

5:26 am

Still about 6 minutes apart but they are getting stronger. Heading to my parents and continuing to count to that 5 minute apart mark.

This better not be a false alarm... wish me luck!
