Our Last Day as 4

Today is officially our last day as a family of four. Starting some time tomorrow we'll be a family of five.

Oh my goodness!!

I'm still trying to accept that reality. 3 kids. I must be out of my mind.

After all the turmoil and drama of this pregnancy, I can't wait to get this little guy outta me and into this world. We thought we were going to meet him yesterday, but that didn't work out. At my appointment on Tuesday my doctor stripped my membranes, and by 11 that night I was having contractions every 10 minutes. We went to the hospital, and after staying all night they sent me home because I was not dilating any further than 2.5. I cried like a baby. Once again we did the walk of shame to the exit. I struggled for the whole rest of the day, I am so tired and uncomfortable, I just want him out!!

I've continued to have contractions every 8 minutes since then. I was up all night with them. I doubt anything will come of it today, so right now I'm focusing on counting down the hours until I can go to bed tonight, because tomorrow is the day. AT LAST.

The nurses promised me that no matter what, when I go in tomorrow, I'm not leaving without my baby boy in my arms. This is very comforting.

So now I must find things to occupy my time, thus making it feel like time is going faster, because I'm anxious and excited and so DONE.
