And here is my pregnant belly at 39 weeks, 2 days..November 1, 2013, hours before going into active labor. It was a gorgeous fall day and I went for a walk.

Had to bend forward to see my feet!

It was 4:30 in the afternoon when I left for the walk. …had been in pre-labor for a week but didn’t recognize it until afterwards. In fact, Jason wasn’t feeling well so I went to Kroger to get him some theraflu. Felt (pregnant) normal. By 10 that night I knew I couldn’t sleep so I watched some TV.  Still normal because insomnia and pregnancy go hand in hand for me. By 11:30 things were different…dealt with it for a while. Finally took a long shower went it was no joke anymore. A little after 1:30am I was waking Jason up to take me to the hospital. We learned in our birth class to head to the hospital when contractions are 5 minutes apparat for 1 minute for 1 hour. Hahaha. That stage never happened for me. When I started counting them (there’s an app for that), they were 2 minutes apart for about 30 seconds. That’s why I took the shower…try to stay calm, water helps manage pain, see if they’re consistent for a long enough period of time. So I knew I had enough of a pattern. Then I panicked a bit, woke Jason. I forgot he had been feeling sick. We threw things together, I ran around crazy trying to remember everything…diaper bag, car seat, birth ball, clothes for us, protein bars for Jason…why did I not have this together already?! Oh yeah, I thought I’d be late…(kill me contraction…Jason timing on his app now)..and were out the door by 2am. The rest, as they say, is history.
