We May Have An Early Bird...

I started having pretty consistent contractions last night during church (we were at our Sat. night service). After getting home, and putting the girls to bed, Conn started timing them (while watching a football game, of course) and they were about 4-5 min. a part for over an hour. Around 11:30, we decided to go to the hospital just to "check things out". My parents came right over to stay with the girls. My friend and nurse, Linda, met us up at the hospital. She wasn't even on call. Man, we are so blessed! Well, she checked me and I was dilated to 4cm and having regular contractions on the screen. She then wanted me to walk around for 30 min., and then check my progress. After the 30 min., she checked me again, and...no change. Just, stronger contractions. So...not wanting to sit up at the hospital for who knows how long, Conn and I decided to come home and "wait it out". We both really thought we would be back up there a couple of hours later. I did come home and eventually fall asleep, but did wake up several times with a tight tummy and some pressure. But, here it is 9:45 a.m., and I am blogging while Conn is at church doing his pastoral duties. The contractions are still pretty much the same and are still pretty frequent. So....we shall see. This little man will probably be making an early entrance...or he could just be teasing us all. Stay tuned!!!

WE are PUMPED!!! Can't wait to meet this little man. I just knew it would be last night. Conn seemed pretty sure you were in labor when we saw him at the park. This little stinker is like Hadley....a LONG early labor. I wonder if he'll make it until December???? He won't make it past the 1st...that's for sure. You guys will be in my thoughts and prayers. Welcome to BLUE and welcome to the wonderful world of THREE KIDDOS!!!
