Party Anyone?

I was thinking we might be having a Steelers Party tonight.... the hospital.

Yes folks, it has begun!

I started having contractions yesterday evening...

First signs were around 5:30 PM-ish... but it wasn't until around 7:30PM that I started to figure out that this wasn't just normal pain!

So... yes, I should be sleeping... Cory is in bed right now. I don't want to wake him up! Lord knows he needs his sleep as well!! I have been having VERY strong pains (as I was sleeping off and on)... so I came downstairs to use an online contraction timer (Cory thinks of everything!). I don't want to go to the hospital too early.... but I don't want to go too late either! (And I want to make sure my mom has time to drive 45 mins in the mean time!)

So... say a prayer for us!

Looks like this is going to happen... very soon!!!


Just got back from the hospital... I am in early labor.. but only 2cm. The pains I've been having are due to the baby being "sunny side up"... which we are hoping will change! Could be hours, could be days! I am off to rest!!


  1. good luck!!!! when you are not sleeping try to keep moving and walking around the house. Movement and gravity really helps to get things going! They sent us to walk for an hour around the hospital before they admitted us with Reiley! keep us updated =)

  2. "Thoughts and Prayers" for you and your very special little blessing!

  3. Devon... It was a nice drive over and back this morning, regardless. No regrets. It gave me lots of time to contemplate the miracle of everything that's happening. Such a basic part of life, yet it never ceases to amaze me how everything works together.

    Sorry you're in so much pain with so little gain at this point. Hang in there, sweetie! Love ya!

    P.S. If the baby is "sunny side up", does that mean he or she is a "good egg"? LOL!! Sorry. Had to make a funny.... Did you smile?

  4. I'm ridiculously excited for you!
    Saying prayers for the three of you!!

  5. woo hoo, the time is approaching for the new little dear to arrive! I will be praying for you and the wee one!

  6. good luck with everything, can't wait to see your little bundle of joy:)

  7. praying for you guys Devon!! I'm super excited for you guys!!!! Get ready for you family to grow!!

  8. Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. I am so happy for all of you. I saw the wonderful pictures on Katy's blog and look forward to hearing about her birth from you.
