6: The night before: I feel perfectly normal. My feet are sore from walking around Wal-Mart for 4 hours, but other than that I feel great, considering that I should be in labor. Your due date was first the 25th of June, then they later changed it to the 26th. Well, I was praying you would come early, but the 25th has now rolled by and you are giving me no signs that you want out! I am sad, but at the same time I am too excited and overwhelmed with anxiety because I know you will be here for sure by the end of the night. All of our bags are packed and ready to go to the hospital. We did not know what to do with ourselves as our minds were going ninety to nothing, wondering how much you would weigh, what color eyes you would have....I can not tell you how many times I packed and unpacked your diaper bags, making sure I had the cutest outfits and extra everything. Everything you had was monogrammed with your initials or your name: bloomers, bibs, burp-cloths, receiving blankets, etc. I do not think we could have been any more prepared for you to come into our lives. Your daddy finally falls asleep around 10:00 p.m. I am trying to keep my mind occupied by watching tv and eating junk food. June 26, 2009 is gone, it is now 12:00. Your left foot is jabbing the upper right side of my rib cage and I am very uncomfortable, not to mention tired. Suddenly, I am beginning to feel a cramp in my lower stomach. The pain is almost unnoticeable due to the fact that I am so happy that this may be the first signs of labor. The pain is now going away, if it comes back I know for sure this is it. Time is going by slowly...OUCH...It has been twenty minutes since my stomach stopped hurting, and it is now back and ten times stronger. Finally, the pain is waring away. I am starting to get excited and I want to wake up daddy, but I want the pain to come back at least one more time, that way I know for sure I am having contractions. It has only been ten minutes and the pain is back and has intensified. I wake up daddy, and I am telling him that I believe I am having contractions. He is smiling and blushing as he asks me to call the nurse. I am giving details to the nurse, and she believes I am in labor. After taking a long bath and getting ready to go to the hospital daddy and granny are rushing me, afraid my contractions will be too overwhelming before we can make it to the hospital. I still want to make a sandwich and put on make-up, but they are not letting. Daddy is driving my new car, with the new car seat, ready to go! He is driving 90 mph on airline highway. It makes me giggle because he does not even realize it. Before we know it, here we are....Women's Hospital In Baton Rouge, and here I am, 4 hours into labor about to get our birthing suite. | 3 | o'clock | good morning
