5: Let the labor pains begin | Baby Girl | My labor began on Thursday night June 10,2010. I was working that night and timed the contractions that were 10-15 minutes apart. I came home from work Friday morning and tried to get some sleep but I couldn't because the contractions were too strong. Your dad came home from work early to be with me and we finally went to the hospital around three that afternoon. I was dilated to a four and was progressing so they admitted me to the hospital. I progressed slowly but surely and you finally came into the world at exactly two o'clock on Saturday morning, June 12th. 1t was weird seeing you for the first time and thinking how you had been inside me this whole time, but I felt an instant love that I know only a mother or father can feel for their child.
