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....
*This song "Daughters" by John Mayer was playing on the radio on our way to the Hospital!!!

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!!
