Workout – ran 2 miles
Weightloss- still -1 (I am going to change to weighing in only on Mondays. Everyday hurts my soul)
Thirteen years ago today I went into labor with Josh, 10 glorious days early. After getting over the initial shock of what I thought was peeing my pants I figured out that my water had broke. One load of laundry later (since I had been wearing the jammies I wanted to bring with me when my water broke) and vacuuming so that I could come home from the hospital to those wonderful freshly vacuumed lines in the carpet (psycho) I was off. One quick stop at the grocery store for snackies and I was on my way to Rochester General Hospital….talking the whole way about how this kid better look like me since Caleb was a blondie. I took my sweet time getting there since my labor with Caleb was so long and I didn’t want to be stuck at the hospital for any longer than I had to. I had regular contractions but they weren’t painful so I figured I had plenty of time. My friend Susie and her boyfriend came up to visit for a bit and we took a stroll around Labor & Delivery. After they left I went from 0 to 10 on the pain scale instantaneously. I was determined to get an epidural this time since I hadn’t had one with Caleb. The nurses told me to take a shower instead. Ummm, kay…. I got in the shower had one god awful contraction, said screw that, and got out. I got into bed so the nurse could check to see how far along I was and they said I was ready to rock and roll. My mom flew into the room just in time (she was by my side for both of my kids births) and after a harrowing 15 minutes of real labor he was born.
My little Joshybear. Such a joy this kid is to me. Has been making me laugh since the day he was born and I am so proud to be called his Mama.
