Labor Day Update

It's 6:30pm and Mariah has been in labor (on and off, mostly ON) for 17 hours now.

Contractions are stronger (pain is now a 6, on a 1-10 scale) and longer (usually longer than a minute), but still not frequent enough for us to go to the hospital (now at 12 minutes, needs to be 5).

The baby is doing fine, he moves around now and then.

The bags are ready again and we're really hoping to go to the hospital in a matter of hours...epidural here we come! ;)

I don't know when I'll be able to write the next update. I know a lot of you family and friends are reading, and we appreciate the messages. This baby is a lucky one, coming out to the world to such a loving posse.

I have a few people to call when we're about to go to the hospital (you know who you are). For everyone else, Wendy will be our "phone tree", so if you know her you can call her starting later today or tomorrow.

Wish us luck!
