In Labor!!!

Here it is!

I am in the hospital right now, in labor. I'm so nervous. Wonder why I'm blogging? Believe it or not, I will take any distraction I can get!

My water broke at midnight, January 26th. Philip and I both took a shower then headed to the hospital around 2AM with contractions. Got here and was having contractions 4 minutes apart, I was 3 cm dilated and 80% effaced.

Right now, it's almost 5AM - (just paused for a contraction). Philip and I just put on the movie Predator for a distraction. Funny choice right? For some reason it's comforting cause I've seen it like a thousand times.

Philip is amazing. He's been so supportive, massaging my back with every contraction. I couldn't ask for a better husband.

Oh my goodness, the baby will here soon soon!!! I can't wait to meet my little guy!!

Will update later!
