What They Don't Tell You Is

Early labor contractions are way boring. 

Just now, after having two contractions 7 minutes apart and getting really excited and then going a full 20 minutes before the next one, I flipped my iPod contraction timer app the bird.

It felt really good.

When I called my mom to complain she said, "Why do you think so many women clean their house when they're in labor? What else are they going to do?"

  16. I haven't visited your blog in months....wow! Congratulations! Babies are the BEST.

    Don't get too anxious....first time moms usually go late. My little one waited ten days past the due date.

    Enjoy these last days with your bub in your belly. :-)
