28 April ~ 4:20 am and counting

Well.... could this really be THE day? I think it might be. I know, I know... this coming from the recent little girl who cries labor. But I was really going to get up today and write a post to all of you sweet friends out there for your encouragement and prayers from yesterday (God and Z-packs are SOOO good.... I already feel better), not to mention to give you an update on Baby Lincoln. BUT this is WAY better.... I've been having the GOOD kind of contractions since about 2ish this morning. Naturally I woke up to the bump hard as a rock (this unfortunately happens all the time so nothing to get your knickers ruffled for), but this time it was accompanied by that "it's that time of the month" kind of feeling as well. HALLELUJAH! These are the kind that I've been waiting for (or at least waiting for them to come and stay for awhile). Anyway, I'm now going on 2 1/2 hours of pretty strong ones that are getting closer and more intense, so I really, really, really hope I'm not jinxing myself by writing this! But honestly, I needed something to do other than walk around or take a bath to help the time pass... I am NOT going to the hospital too early this time, I am NOT going to be turned away again, and I am NOT making another trip home without Lincoln in his carseat! So there. (= Anyway, so happy thoughts that today is D-day! Although I'm so beyond done being pregnant, I'm more so done waiting to meet this little man! I can tell he's going to be a mama's boy already... I mean why else would he want to hold out this long for?? I love him already.

Tara, I've been following your blog for quite sometime and I can totally empathize with you and your "girl crying labor" stories. I am a mother of four and my first pregnancy was similar to Mr. Lincoln's, oh so many trips to the hospital only to be turned away :(. Best wishes to you, I enjoy reading your blog. You have taken this on with grace and your positive attitude is amazing!
