Happy Almost Birthday, Little Beansies!
No, really. You were almost born today.
Long story short, I thought I had a UTI or was constipated or had a kidney stone or SOMEthing and ended up in Labor & Delivery 1-2 cm dialated, contractions 6-8 mins apart with a thinned cervix.
Now, tell me a mother's intuition doesn't mean a thing. I knew I dropped last week and all weekend I told my mom "I just know something is happening." I told Matt "she's coming early". I wasn't exactly expecting THIS early, but thankfully God, my doctor and the same 2 nurses who taught our childbirth class took LB and me into their hands and controlled the situation. All is well after 2 doses of meds to stop the contractions and 4 hours of listening to LB hiccup, kick, roll, punch and flail. We even listened to my stomach growl:) Matt is amazed by this child's strength-- frankly, I am too.
Stay put a little longer, baby girl. I know your Mom and Dad are pretty awesome, but we'll still be awesome in a couple/few more weeks. In fact, we'll save up all our awesomeness from now until then and pour it on the day you're born, k?
