It all started Wednesday evening February 29th 2012 when I started having constant contractions for about three hours. I decided to try to relax and just go to sleep. They subsided that evening, but I had a few throughout the night, but nothing constant. Throughout the day on March 1st, 2012 I was in so much pain when I would walk. I knew things were happening and birth was near. At the end of the day after I picked up Grayson we went home and than that is when everything started to change. I got really sick...like pucking sick on top of strong painful contractions that would not go away. So after resting and changing positions for over an hour we decided that we should go to the hospital to get checked out. It was just weird I got sick on top of having contractions. Our friend Kim came to the hospital and picked up Grayson. Grayson slept over at their house and Kim took Grayson to his school on Friday morning. Once I got settled in the labor and delivery room they did the normal vital checks and did a vaginal check to see if I was dilated. I was a stretchy 2 as stated by the nurse. The nurse felt like I was in labor and would more than likely have the baby. However once I saw the doctor it was a different story. Dr H felt that I needed to progress more before they would admit me. So Chad and I began the walking up and down the hallway. I will have to save it hurt the entire time I would walk. After several hours and two more vaginal checks I had made no progress so Chad and I decided at about 11:30PM that we would just go home and see what happens. I was extremely tired and hungry. We got home around 12:30AM and I took some water to our room and pretzels and rested. I fell asleep for about two hours when once again painful contractions woke me up. These contractions were intense and lasted for about one minute and were coming every three minutes. I stayed home for about two hours with these contractions, I didn't want to go back up to the hospital and get sent back home.
We are so happy to welcome Crew to our family he is a delight and looks so much like his big brother Grayson.
