Whelp! This Might Be It.

Get it? Whelp? Hee hee.

But seriously folks.

Been having progressively more painful contractions since about 5:30 this afternoon. I'm still able to move and talk through them but as the night wears on it's getting so I'd prefer not to.

If this is labor, it's really different from the first time.

I'll keep you posted up until/unless we leave for the hospital, but I don't know if they have Wi-Fi there so that may be it for awhile if we do have to go. (Sorry!)

I have to go fold laundry and do my hair.

I know.

Love,

F.O.

  3. How exciting....If your hospital is like most, you'll have wi-fi! So, no excuses for you to not update...unless of course, you are, you know, in labor.

    I'll be thinking of you.......

  12. Oh, I can't wait to read all about it! I feel like I've know you for forever and I just wanna hug you right now... though I wouldn't, cause I know how unpleasant that would be for a gal in labor (plus, you prob don't feel like you know me well at all).
    Congrats! Hope you'll put up pics!

  21. Oh my! I do not know you personally but you have been the first blog I read in the mornings with my coffee and you just make me laugh. We just moved to a new town and I know nobody and its good to have a laugh every morning. It's like having a new friend. Anyways, good luck and you will do great. There is nothing like those last moments when you just lay there in labor and thank God that he has given you this opportunity to have this child. I am looking forward to an update.
