"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. but the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

The Belly Bump's Last Stand

Captain's Log (err.. I mean Pregnant Lady's Log) : Tuesday, July 15, 2008 02:11 AM

I can't sleep, because I keep having contractions... & I can't stop thinking that I didn't finish folding the laundry & some still needs to be put away, the kitchen needs a controlled burn to properly clean & sanitize it, my hair is a mess & I have nothing to wear, & I still need to pack for the hospital & I don't even have a car seat yet & what if Julia is really a Seth?


BY THE WAY....

It's almost been 12 1/2 hrs since Miss Julia arrived... let me back up a bit. So my labor stopped about 8 AM and didn't start up again until 4 pm, so I took advantage of the time and slept, since I didn't get any the night before. But my labor only lasted 1 hr. what in the world? My mother-in-law suggested I get checked at my Dr's, so I did and I was progressing. He suggested I go on a walk. So I did and boy did that do the trick. We headed to the hopital and found out I was at 7 cm when I arrived at 7:30 PM, so they got me right into a room, gave me my IV and called for my Soma the Epidural. Hurray!! Art delivered Julia at about 9:31 PM after pushing through 2 contractions. The dream ending to a dream delivery and she really was a girl. WOW!!

Was that picture just before you had her?! you are blessed to be so small! When I am pregnant I'm a bit of a beast. But then, you were always so pretty no matter what. Some things never change. You lucky dog.
