Soooo…I’m about 99% sure I’m in labor! I mean I still have my doubts but with contractions coming around 10 min or less and lasting 1 min or longer, I think that means it’s time. Plus I had my bloody show so it MUST be time right?!?!

Went to dr appt this morning…Teresa was super sweet and checked me and I was -1 station, 90% effaced, and 4 cm dilated!!! I asked her to strip me but she didn’t. She talked to me a LOT about inducing me on Thur since that’s her day on call. We ended the session with a LONG prayer which I thought was beyond awesome of her!!! I debated about getting induced but decided I want it to be on God’s time…not on her time, or anyone elses.

Went to Chickfila and got Kye from Mrs. Charlotte. Ran to Dollar Store to get Kye’s gift for the kids name he drew for his school Christmas party and started contracting there. Still went to swim lessons and started having regular contractions that didn’t go away when I would move. Bradley says that’s labor baby!

On the way home I could barely talk to Zach on the phone so we’re pretty sure this is legit. I’m squirming pretty bad writing this b/c I’m mid contraction now 🙂

I’ve texted/called all my people! Kye just went down for his nap and our plan is to stay home as long as we can! Assuming we leave before he wakes up Jordan is going to keep him for us.

Please pray for a speedy, easy, healthy delivery! I probably won’t update again until we have a BABY!!! (Unless this is false labor…then I’ll let you know…I KNEW I wouldn’t be positive when labor came!).
