Whoa there little girl

Sophia Grace thought that she was ready to come onto the scene last night. At about 11 pm I started having contractions. At first, I was in denial. I am SO unprepared this time. When we realized they were exactly 5 minutes apart, Duane started packing bags and cameras. I was like "what are you doing?- this is nothing". But, it didn't take long for me to realize that it was in fact "something" and a call to my midwife confirmed we needed to head to the hospital. We called some friends to come stay with the boys and headed out around 1 am. By the time they got me into my room the contractions were 3 minutes apart. At this point I was pretty sure today would be her birthday. They hooked me up to all kinds of junk and gave me a shot to stop the contractions. They weren't very hopeful that it would work because I am already dilated to 4. But they wanted to give it a try, because they would really like for me to hold on atleast 2 more weeks when I will be 37 wks. Thankfully it did work and we came home around 8 this morning. Now I am supposed to be "taking it easy". Mom took Micah for a couple of days, which will make that a little easier to do. Please just pray for healthy lungs and that she will come when God's finished with her in there :).

Whoa! Holy Crapola Batman! That is crazy! Well, being a girl and knowing that one day she too will have to birth a baby, maybe she just wants to come out as quickly and painlessly as she can for her mama! I will say a prayer that she hangs in there a little longer or until she's ready! I think I was right though, she should be coming in September like the rest of the boys! You know my "you must only ovulate one time a year" theory! he he!
