except for a few , well, signs which are inappropriate to mention on this post - but - I'm thinking about going downstairs to get my camera - so all can see what Laura Beth looks like during a contraction.
Okay - she's resting right this second. It is now 2:18. Can't believe she's sleeping. The last contraction was pretty rough....started at 2:10 andhere comes another and it's 2:19....
I confess I have taken some pictures....think I'll pause this post long enough to download them.
Much, much, much later - Laura Beth is at the hospital - got there by 4:00. Contractions 3 min. apart - Scott going 80 - that's all I know. She is in her hospital gown and in the bed - still haven't heard what will happen - how much dilated.....Ada woke up during it all and LB was being very quiet - no yelling like on TV - and making every effort to deal with it all. She was pretty miserable. I've just downloaded these pix.
Trying to relax during a contraction and waiting on the doctor to call back
It's 7:00 am here in Atlanta - Laura Beth was 3-4 cm when she got here at 4ish - major contractions - wondering how women do it without an epidural - and very nauseus. She now has an epidural and dryheaved enough that her nausea is gone. She's loving life right now - contractions have slowed down a pinch due to epidural - but she doesn't care - she's so glad to not be feeling anything. She did request that I come on to the hospital - and this scaredy cat mom who doesn't like night driving and especially in Atlanta didn't blink - I was out the door - leaving Sarah to be with Ada when she wakes up this morning.
So here we are - & I even got out at the parking deck by myself and dared any mugger to come after me....none did. Sorry - bad humor - I'm such an old lady scaredy cat about stuff.
We're, the 3 of us, actually having a nice time here in labor and delivery. Stay tuned for the birth of John Thomas Moore.
