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!
