Sarah knocked on my door around 1:30AM and told me she was having contractions about 8 minutes apart. I was farming on Farm Town. Around 5 minutes apart she called the mid wife who told her to come to the hospital. Around 3:30AM we piled into the car and drove the 3 minutes to the hospital. They put her on the monitor and yes, the contractions were 5 minutes apart and they stayed that way for the next 2 hours. They had her walking the halls with Obie hoping to nudge the little one into finally making an appearance but no she was already showing her stubbornness.
The mid wife told Sarah she could stay or wait it out at home. We went home about 6:00AM. I went right to sleep because I hadn’t slept yet. I woke up at 11:30AM and all is quiet. The kids are upstairs, the wasband is sleeping and I am writng this post wondering how Sarah is feeling. I don’t want to yell up to her in case she’s sleeping but how you could sleep with contractions is beyond me.
So, at this point it’s WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!! That baby has only 12 hours left to be born on my birthday. I wonder if I can squeeze her out somehow?
