It's about 11:30, and we're going to try and rest for awhile. But I have a feeling these contractions aren't gonna let me sleep. They've moved from 15 minutes apart to about 10 within 2 hours or so, and are becoming regular at 45 seconds long. This has to be the beginning of the end of pregnancy!
I'm guessing we'll be heading to the hospital sometime in the wee hours of the morning, and hopefully having this baby tomorrow! Grandfather is spending the night, so our childcare is in place, and we've prepped the kids that they may wake up to find out we're at the hospital. There are some apprehensions, but also a lot of excitement. They've waited an eternity for this baby---considering they have no concept of time!
I just wish my doctor wasn't out of town, but we're praying for a great on-call doc and fabulous nurses. Please join us in praying that all goes smoothly and that I can be strong!
