leaving for the hospital
so, we take a picture of my belly every month of each pregnancy, and when we leave for the hospital. this is my 3rd baby so, Monday morning after a whole night of contractions, we knew we were having a baby shortly. here i am, bags packed, laid the girls clothes out for the next couple of days, pulled out unisex onsies, did some last minute cleaning, took one last picture of the belly, and waited for my water to break......or something.....anything more to happen. about 10 hours after this picture was taken, i went over to the hospital knowing full well they would send me home but just wanting some answers, tips, any reassurance that i would in fact be having a baby sometime in the near, i repeat NEAR future? no such luck, the nurse said, "well i can't see you going another week like this." what? exhausted and defeated, i went home. now, almost 48 hours since i woke up in the night IN LABOR, i am still IN LABOR. i guess it is increasing my appreciation for the 7 and 12 hours i have spent previously in this condition. anyway, wish me luck, and hopefully my next post will be pictures of our new baby?
