I'm sorry to hear about the death of your MIL. It was a good thing that you could be there for your husband.

Re: Progress!

Update: baby was born at 1 am. Labored from 6pm-1am. Epidural was a lifesaver. Pictures to come tomorrow. I can tell I'm riding on an adrenaline high. Can't wait to eat and nap.

Re: Progress!

I've had a couple of promising contractions. Yippee! I ate a sandwich and am walking around. Going to try some water and rest in a little while to see how I feel.

Re: Progress!

My siggy was from my positive OPK. My doctor goes by my ultrasound that showed me at 6 weeks and one day at the time it was done. I just never bothered to change the ticker.
