Dara Carol is here!

I am going to keep this one short. I am home now only because I have to take care of the animals. She was born on Friday the 12th at 1:06am she is 8lbs 2oz and 21 inches long. Her name is Dara Carol and it's feels so amazing to be a mommy. I will post the story and pictures as soon as I can. Thank you C for making me a mommy you did an awesome job and I love soo much!

The Doctor told C that she is a loose 3 and 40-60% effaced and they stripped her membrane. Maybe this will get things moving. Every night for the past three night I say to C this is the night I feel it and nothing.

C called just know while I was blogging and said that she is having the braxton hicks contractions more often but still no pain. I hope this is a sign. I feel like tonight is the night.

This is C at 39 weeks and 1 day!

We have six more days until that magical number comes. So far this has been the hardest part for me, not knowing. Every call that comes in, every ouch C lets out. I go into panic mode, my heart starts racing. Is today going to be the day? Are we going to have any warning? Are we going to have any false runs to the hospital? What am I going to do with the dogs if C is in labor for a long period of time?Hundreds of questions running through my head every minute of the day.

Wednesday C had her Doctors appointment with her regular doctor. They like to rotate you through the other doctors in the practice just incase your regular doctor isnt available to deliver the baby. She said that she is dailated to a tight 3 and 40% effaced and while she was in there she stretched her cervix witch releases something that helps with the delivery. I cant remember the terminology. I was suprised that she said only 40% effaced because the other two doctors said 50 and then 75% effaced but I guess Cs doctor said that they are more generous with thier numbers.
