Labor....

Yep.... I am in Labor. I am sitting here at the hospital all IV'd and hooked up to monitors. My water broke at work around 5:00pm and Big Guy rushed over to take me to the hospital. The contractions aren't that strong yet because I wouldn't say I am in PAIN yet- it is very uncomfortable, but I would rather have this than stick a needle in my back-- when that changes, I will know that I am really in active labor and it is time for the epidural.
Wish me luck- I am a little nervous, but Big Guy is here taking care of me and the nurses and midwives and residents seem very nice. My IV kinda sucks- I didn't realize I would be so aware of it sticking in my hand, but I am sure that soon it will be the least of my worries.
I hope everything goes well, and I hope to have good news to report some time in the near-ish future!

Good luck!!!!! I'll be thinking of you and sending you good thoughts for a quick and easy labor. :)

The epidural is your friend. Best advice I ever got was to get the epi before you think you need it!
