Week 39 ~ April 14, 2007

39 weeks, 2 days

So Kendall Reese is NOT here yet. I'm writing midweek because I had a big event happen. On Thursday night I had contractions. They went from 20 minutes to 15 minutes to 5 minutes apart. I called the doc on call (mine is out on vacation) and she said go into the hospital. So we went. It took forever to drop off Ky and then get everything settled in but we got to the hospital, they hooked me up and I was still having contractions.

Then they tried to give me the needle for fluid and the nurse missed 2 times . . . then she got someone else to do it. After pokes, prods and jabs I was finally hydrated. It was 12 midnight. The nurse says, "You'll be having this baby today or tomorrow. They won't send you home since you're so close!"

BULL! ALL LIES So I fall asleep and during the sleep Kendall sleeps too . . . so the doc says that since my contractions stopped and I'm only at 3 cm I can go home.

I've never been so devastated. I want to see her, more than that, I'm in pain and I want to be un-pregnant right now. Sleep is an oxymoron and I'm tired. tired. tired.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY SENT ME HOME WHEN I AM TO BE INDUCED IN 4 DAYS. So I'll have to do all the paperwork again, get poked again, sleep on the crummy bed again.

I'll keep you guys posted!
