~well, here we go...~

~Today was my last day of work.

~Thank goodness for that because the new gal was wearing on my last freakin' nerve!! I swear she probably did her own baby dances every night wishing & hoping I would go into labor just so she could work full days.

~If I had $1 for every comment she made to me about having the baby right away or if I had any signs of the baby coming, I certainly wouldn't have to go back to work so soon.

~Early in the week I had a fleeting thought that maybe I'd leave early today, but then I figured if I'm going to get up early to get in there, I might as well just deal with being there the whole day. Well, of course, the first thing out of her mouth this morning was if I was planning to stay all day or not and her volunteering to stay for me....what a shocker!! NOT!!

~I received a sign today that labor may not be that far away...it was not my water breaking, but another lovely substance that 'oozes' out of the body prior to labor. I'll let you look that one up and spare you the details.

~Anyway, I have to be at the hospital at 5:45am Friday morning.

~I will send Twitter updates as much as the pain allows me to.

~I'll post pics when I get a moment to myself, which will likely be years from now.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for keeping the "oozing" info to yourself. I'm already terrified of having kids. I totally expect you to tell me that your labor was perfect and painless and I should have no fear!!

Good luck tomorrow! I'll be thinking about you all day!!!!!

Oh that's right, you're getting induced regardless. Will they still do it if the baby seems to be on its way?

It's that substance they talked about from Knocked Up, right? Where she's in the tub and he comes over and shows off his "I read the books" knowledge.

Welcome to the world, Ethan!

Congratulations, Krystyn! You made it!

Amy said...

Yay! Now what was worse, the uncomfortableness or the c-section? A woman I work with says inductions always tend to lead to c-sections. Sorry she was right in your case!

Mary said...

congratulations! I'm so excited for you! hope the pain gets better soon!

I know what the substance is. Not as gross as water breaking all of over your shoes (did anyone see movie Riding in Cars with Boys?) Can't wait to see pictures.
