|11/6 First Year Anniversary|
And here are some pictures of his room taken the night I went into labor:
We got ice cream and rented a movie and set up a little fort on the floor. Before starting the movie, we managed to get one final belly picture in the nursery. Here I am at 39 weeks 1 day...about 3 hours before going into labor:
|39 weeks 1 Day|
We arrived at the hospital around 9 am and they got us in a room right away. The nurse ended up being my Mom and Step Dad's old neighbor that I had known for years. SHE WAS FANTASTiC! Cindy (the nurse) checked me and said we were at 4 cm and 80% effaced...in active labor. I'll never forget what she said...."You better call your Mom, you're having a baby today."
I was so happy. If you know me you know I'm a planner....I wanted to labor at home for a while which I ended up doing for 9 hours...and I wanted to go into labor on my own which I did.....it APPEARED that everything was going according to plan and I would have the birth I wanted. Boy was I wrong.
