First Day at home with Daddy!
Hanging with Boppa!
Day 5 enjoying a little tummy time with Mommy!
As many of you mom's know, getting up to pee every couple of hours is completely normal for the last part of your pregnancy. Well, I had gotten up around midnight....normal. Then I got up again at about 2:00am.....again, normal. This time when I went to lay back down I felt a sort of cramp in my tummy...Hmmmmm....peculiar. I laid down and about 3-4 minutes later there was that cramping again....definitely NOT normal. I realized I was having contractions and Holy Crap!!!! They were about 3.5 minutes apart. I woke Nick up to tell him I was having contractions and that I was going to take a shower in case this was "it". I called my parents to warn them that they may need to catch the first flight to Phoenix and hopped in the shower.
I continued timing my contractions while I showered and they increased to about every 2-2.5 minutes. Holy Cow! Then I think my water breaks. Oh Crap! This is about when I started thinking...uh oh....how long does it take to get to the hospital?!?! (Oh yeah, that would be about 45 minues to an hour.....eeeeek!) I got out of the shower, got myself ready to go, woke Nick up with "Uh, honey??? I think we need to get going. My contractions are about 2-3 minutes apart." He promptly rolled over and exclaimed "Really???" and then something to the effect of "$hitballs, I thought we'd have several hours before we had to go anywhere!" He got the car loaded up, we dropped Zoey at a friend's house, and made our way to the hospital.
