From across the hall


I've reached the point in my pregnancy (38 weeks) where I've started getting a little nervous about this whole labor and delivery thing.  Just a little anxious.  I know I've done it 3 times before, but maybe that's just it....I'm remembering how fast these babies come and how bad they hurt getting here.  (I'm crossing my fingers for a fast working epidural this go-around.) I keep telling myself...I've done it before and I can do it again!  Yeah!!  Yeah??! 

I was at my weekly checkup yesterday, and while waiting for my doctor to come in the room, I heard a lady start screaming across the hall.  The screaming turned into crying and the crying turned into wailing.  I then heard the doctor try to "reassure" her by telling her she was in early labor and that they were going to wheel her over to the hospital.

Y'all!!  That did not one thing for my nerves. 

It was reassuring, however, when I was told later that this baby sounded great and measured right on track.  Labor and delivery is brutal but the baby is oh-so-sweet.

Hope y'all are having a wonderful week.

Super cute outfit in your photos! We're having the "baby" talks around my house and I can't even get past the "lets have a baby" part to the pushing the baby out part lol.

I remember holding my sisters leg while she gave birth a few weeks before I was supposed to have my first and all the thoughts and emotions going on inside me could write a very interesting little book. It's hard, but keep your eye on the prize! You got this!

I don't think that labor is one of those things that having gone through it makes easier, if anything it probably makes you even more anxious. Sending lots of happiness and love your way and hoping for a healthy you and healthy baby. So excited for an introduction to your new little one when he/she is born (:
