A little play-by-play

I'm here at the hospital now (hooray for Wi-Fi!). When I arrived, I was 5 cm, nearly 100% effaced, and contracting regularly but still painlessly. Since then, my contractions have intensified a ton so I think this little boy was coming anyway. I just got my epidural, which was a breeze compared to my last one's two-hour-long fiasco. I haven't even started the Pitocin yet, but my body is doing a good job on its own.

It's funny, now that I'm here, I don't care how my little boy gets here so long as he's healthy. My body is just a vessel for his arrival anyhow. No worries. :)

So glad it's going well! Did Dr lampy? do you epidural, I loved him! Any man that can make getting an epidural enjoyable is my hero!

I hope you are meeting your little guy very, very soon! :) I can't wait to hear what cool name you guys came up with!
