Taking her all in.

I'm not an all-natural girl when it comes to child labor & delivery. I quite liked the effects of my epidural when Deacon was born. I did not get that luxury this time around. At around 3:30am, I started feeling cramp-like contractions coming every 7-10 minutes. Finally at 5:15 I decided it was time to wake Brent up & head to the hospital. Mom Sink came over to stay with Deacon & we walked out the door around 5:30. As the contractions got more painful & closer together, Brent put the pedal to the metal. I think he topped out at 95 on interstate. I'm also wondering how many tickets we'll get for running every single red light. We made it to the hospital with my contractions coming every 2 minutes or less. After skipping registration, being in triage less than 5 minutes (after discovering I was between 6 & 7 cm) we made it to the delivery room. At this point I had the feeling that my chances at receiving an epidural were very, very slim because of how far along I was. We arrived at the hospital at 6am & a mere 42 minutes later, Nora joined our little family in person.
