The ride home was horrible! Every bump in the road was magnified 110%. I had to go to the bathroom so badly, even though I went 3 times at the restaurant! Daddy couldn't go fast enough it seemed. I really thought that we'd get home, grab our bags and leave for the hospital. But, now we're home and things have fizzled out. My back is hurting very much - are you facing the wrong direction? On Monday, Dr. Ward said you were head down, but didn't say anything about your position. My legs feel like jello. I must have an overdose of that hormone that loosens joints for labor coursing through my veins! I'm extremely tired now. I'm going to go nap, but I was so excited to meet you I'm not sure that I can sleep.
Dr. said that my contractions need to be 5 minutes apart for an hour or my water needs to break before coming to the hospital - so, if you'd like to make either of those things happen we're as ready as we're ever going to be! Daddy is so anxious to meet you, as am I! See you soon.
