Some developments... at last!

Hubby and I are on the way out to the hospital this morning, bright and early.

Last night, as I sat at my desk around 10:15 p.m., just as I was finishing clearing the SD card for the camera, and copying down some music to my mp3 player for the hospital, my water broke. It was unmistakable and by 11 p.m. we were on our way to the hospital to get checked.

Petit is doing fine. I'm doing fine and after a few checks and monitorings of Petit's heartrate, we were sent home to try to get some rest until this morning and told to return to see how things are progressing.

Overnight, contractions hit the 6 minute mark (or thereabouts), however, I did manage to squeeze in 3 or 4 hours of semi decent rest. I know I'm "on the clock" now to deliver within about 24 hours of last night's time marker so we'll just hope that the contractions and pressure I'm feeling are productive today.

Promise to keep you all posted. Wish us luck!

Woohoo Gil!!

How exciting you're hopefully mere hours away from meeting your child, how you must feel I can only imagine!

I can't wait to read the updates and the news of your baby's birth - finally!
