Grandma and Grandpa and Trever flew in from Idaho on Saturday April 18th, one day past my due date. Brett had come home with the stomach flew a week earlier and he, Kelsey and I all took our turn being sick. Sunday night Jeff got sick and stayed in bed all day Monday. Monday (3 days late) I felt crampy in the afternoon, but no contractions, so Mom and I walked the 2 miles roundtrip to Brett's school. We had Tacos for dinner and watched Big Hero 6. At 10pm I decided to jump in the shower before bed. While in the shower I had my first contraction, and two more while there. I got out and told Jeff that I was in labor. He left to go get a coke because he still wasn't feeling well. I laid down in bed with my mom and she massaged my back while I was laboring. The contractions started coming hard and fast, so we called the midwife. She said to meet in 45 minutes at the birthing center. Mom, Jeff and I headed to the birthing center about 25 minutes away. When I got there I was dilated to a 9 and fifteen minutes later she was born.
We love our sweet baby girl and are so happy she is with us!
