6:30am sunday SUNDAY sunday!!!

super bowl "baby," here we come!!!
dr. N couldn't believe i was sitting in his office not in labor with the way things "are" in the cervix.
told me that if i would like an epidural (uh, YES PLEASE) that i will need it before my water breaks.
water breaks without an epidural, there will be no time for an epidural.
so they sent me home with this lovely little fold-able handout.
call at 6:30am sunday morning.
can't wait!!!
mama C is here from the land of aloha.
we're putting our crochet squares together.
laying out obscenely large bows/flowers and little pink shoes.
now to figure out more comfortable ways to sleep upright until sunday...

oh ya! Soooooo exciting! Who's betting she decides to come before then? I guess it didn't work with B. You must just have the more comfortable womb!! Hopefully it will go quick if you've already progressed so much. Are you even curious a tad if you could do it without an epidural if your water breaks? You're already so far along. I know everyone is different and ever labor experience is different. Who knows the next time I may actually get that epidural. Actually I told them I wanted it but the anestiologist was in surgery and then when he would have made it there I was at 8cm and I was more afraid of havin to sit still for a massive needle to go in than to try pushing without. I think I was just lucky that Gavin came out after only two pushes. Man oh man though once Dr broke my water I went from what I thought was a 5 on the scale of pain to a 9! That five was more like a 2 or 3 after that! Luckily the small amount of pain meds they gave me as soon as I requested the epidural helped me enough and let me actually fall asleep between contractions. Good luck beautiful momma!!! You're gonna do so great and she is going to be adorable!
