Finally In Labor!

By January 27th, 2021329 Comments

Finally In Labor!
Hola Chicas!

I’m coming to you bedside from the Labor and Delivery ward!!! Finally, right?!

I started having awful, timeable and frequent contractions last night around 11pm (after crying for 2 hours because I feared I’d be pregnant forever) and was unable to fall asleep. So what did I do? I got up, slowly made my way to the shower and did my hair! The warm water helped ease the contractions and going through the motions of twisting my hair was very therapeutic. After laboring for a while at the house, we arrived at the hospital around 6am this morning. Unfortunately, I was only 3 centimeters dilated (80% effaced), but since my contractions were so fast and furious they kept me. And here I sit.

Currently, between (the absolutely dreadful) contractions I’m watching Coming to America and keeping y’all posted ;-) I’ve been a G thus far… you divas would be so proud! I will need one of y’all to sneak me a sausage biscuit though… I’m starving!

Later Gators,

    You did all that and you still look so pretty!!! Twisting my hair would've been the last thing on my mind…I guess that's why I never let anyone near me with a camera that last time…

    Congratulations again!

  • Regina says:

    Many blessing Nikki! You're a trooper.

  • npmoore04 says:

  • HopefulCurly says:

    This is my first post and I wanted to congratulate you with the new baby girl! Can't wait to see the pics of her!!

  • Miss Mafia says:

    Congrats Nikki!! I hope you got your sausage biscuit.

  • MJ says:

    YAYYY!!! Totally excited! And, I agree, doing your hair can be very therapeutic…those moments spent looking in the mirror styling can contribute to introspective minutes or hours of thinking and self-reflection. Congratulations and many more blessings!

    Praise the Lord! Lol, I checked the site last night, before I went to bed, to see if there'd been any progress since that last time I checked (which was just a few hours prior–lol). There was nothing at the time and I thought to myself, "Poor, Curly Nikki. I bet she's beginning to think she'll be pregnant forever!"

    But I'm so happy to hear that you're finally in labor! When your baby's older, she'll laugh at the fact that you blogged from your hospital bed! lol, a true G*

    Praying for you!
