I THINK IT'S BEGUN!!!!!


First off....did you happen to see the weather for a good part of the country? Yep...North Texas wasn't spared....

What do I hear starting at 1am...? Ice rain hitting the windows for 3 solid hours.....and guess what I felt? Contractions every 10 mins from 2am-3:30am.

I decided to wake hubs up at 3:30 to tell him....but then Lily decided she would wake up too....so I laid down with her and the contractions slowed down from every 10 mins to every 15...then 30.....

So I caught some sleep between 4 and 6am.....on and off looking at the clock to see how close they were coming...

Now? it looks like it will be a long day.

Back to the roads.......we got snow on top of the ice now! Isn't that lovely?

Reid sits still in my tummy for months and decides he needs to have a story to make his entrance grand!

I just got off the phone w/the midwife and 2 women are already in labor. Did I mention I would be the third and there are only 2 birthing suites? Soooooo either my contractions need to quit and start up tomorrow or slow and birth after the others leave! haha

(oops just had another one while typing...we're at every 8-12mins just not lasting long...stand by)

Yowzer about the snow/ice. We're getting ice on top of the snow... I'd much rather have that than snow on ice. Be safe! (not that anyone really needs to be told that :p)
