Birthday anyone?

Sooooo... since about 6 am I have been regular, hurting really bad contractions! I can't believe I'm on here posting about it, lol. Right now they are about 3-4 minutes apart, getting stronger. But I can still walk and talk through them... sort of. So the hospital said I can stay home. I want to stay home as long as possible to avoid any unnecessary interventions. So when my water breaks, or they get more untolerable we will be off to the hospital. Right now I'm living in my shower until the hot water runs out, then I'm pacing our condo until I think there's enough hot water.

Just something I want to remember... I was up allllll night, literally didn't sleep a wink because of this nasty cold. I couldn't breathe at all, then at about 5 am when I start to fall asleep, CONTRACTIONS woke me up! Anyway, I was really nervous about not being able to breathe while in labor, so I asked Aaron for a blessing. We drove to his grandpa's and he assisted. It was really a neat experience. As soon as the blessing was over I could breathe through both nostrils! And I haven't really had to cough since. I am so grateful for the priesthood. I was also blessed with the energy I'll need. Well I bet my hot water is back. Hopefully my next post isn't titled "False Alarm" or something. Hopefully it's, "IT'S A [FILL IN GENDER HERE]!!!!"

I keep checking to see if you've had the baby. I'm really bummed that he/she hasn't arrived yet. Hopefully tomorrow no news will be good news!

I was looking all around for you at church yesterday and when I didn't see you - I hoped it was because you were having your little one!

Hopefully you aren't going to read this right away because you'll be kissing your new baby, but either way, GOOD LUCK! Tell Aaron to call me if I can bring you anything, clean the condo, hold the baby so you can shower, cook something, whatever. We moms have to stick together.
