UPDATE ON EVI – May 2, 2009

2 May

We finally have progress; I started having contractions Fri morning and contracted about 4 hrs. We went into L&D but were sent home b/c I wasn’t dilated any further.

Instead of going home, Aaron, Mom & I went to lunch and saw the new X-Men movie (It was good, not great.) After the movie, we headed home. I started having contractions every 10 min in the car. We spent a couple of hours hanging out at home and around 9:30pm I started having harder contractions about 5 min apart.

We got back to labor & delivery around 11pm; I was admitted and dilated 4cm and 100% effaced. I got my epidural at 1:40am, which was amazing b/c the contractions were getting really painful. Now it’s 8:25am Saturday and we are just waiting for the doctor to arrive and break my water and for Evi to appear.
