Yes, I am blogging from labor and delivery!

Last night after making a huge dinner, and two loaves of pumpkin bread (one was still cooking in the oven), I went to lay down to watch tv and relax around 8:00, and I felt a pop! My water broke! It was pouring down raining, and we were here by 9:00.

It is now 8:30......and here I am 12 hours later, and no freaking baby. I am having contractions every 1-5 minutes but there is no real pattern. They are starting to develop one, but hence this morning I was STILL at 1 cm. I looked at the nurse like, WTF? SERIOUSLY? It's going to be a looooong day!

I haven't slept....and I am bored out of my mind. So, I am sitting here bouncing on a ball, blogging!

I sent Blake home around 3:30 to let Lily out, and make sure our house didn't burn down (neither of us could remember if we turned off the oven..luckily, it's still in tact! but damn I was pumped about that damn pumpkin bread! Popsicles just won't cut it!)

I sure hoped to have a baby by now!

Hopefully soon!!!!

Oh, and since it's been over 12 hours since my water broke, I am a lucky recipient of antibiotics to prevent infections. COME ON BRADY---GET OUT!

Good luck, Amy! I've been thinking of you all night/day. Once that little man makes his appearance and you're home and comfy, I'd be happy to bring some pumpkin bread to you so I can meet him. :)

WOWZA!!! You are blogging while in labor. That's dedication. Or boredom. :) Good luck, momma! Brady, listen to your mother and get out!

Good luck Amy! I'll be thinking of you all day, hoping you have Brady soon. It's much more fun to think about babies than to think about work. :)

Girl, you are something else! I will keep you guys in my thoughts. Hopefully, that boy is here by now. Good luck!

Amber said...

I love that-I'm bouncing on a ball blogging from labor and delivery!! Good luck & I hope he makes his appearance soon!

Emily said...

I hope by now he's made it out safe & sound and you're both doing well. If not...well then I hope you're still hangin' in there! =-)

Julia said...

how exciting and frustrating at the same time. I was wondering how long they'd let the water be broken before doing something...I never thought about antibiotics.

Good luck!!
