Hi! Welcome to my labor.

That's right the labor has started. I'm in the very early stages now. My SPAC have turned into real, productive contractions. At my check-up this morning, I was 2-3 cent. dilated and 80% effaced. The dr keep saying the "baby's head is right there." The plan is for me to go to labor and delivery between 6-7 am tomorrow. The dr will break my water to give my labor a little push. If needed, she will give me a low dose of pitocin. Her plan is to start all of this in the morning and for the baby to be here by tomorrow evening. (we'll see what the baby has planned.)

She did strip my membranes while I was there. I have to say everyone who has whined about that hurting - you're all wimps. It was like being licked by kittens compared to having a cerclage removed!

Now, we really need to get moving on picking a boy name! (Girl name is picked - and I'm still not telling you what it is!)

Wahooo! I thought you already knew the boy name and weren't saying...hmmm. I don't care if you never name him or her, I am just anxious to meet this kid! The cousins are excited, too.

She had a baby girl at 2:08 Tuesday afternoon. Her name is Grace Rose. 6lbs 15oz and 19 inches long. She is beautiful. Mom, baby and daddy are doing great.

I was told there would be an update on the blog tonight, but I knew there wouldn't. Her laptop is at the hospital, so maybe in the morning. I'll let Elizabeth give you all the other details.
