"Birth"day Updates

Off to the hospital
Last baby belly picture 
10:09 A.M.  (Update #1)  We are at the hospital and so far everything is going great.  This is already a MUCH different experience than it was with Cain.  They put an IV in early this morning and started me on a pitocin drip.  I started having contractions right away but really couldn't feel them.

Shortly after the pitocin drip was started anesthesiology came in and administered my epidural.  I can't believe I already have my epidural.  I had been having contractions about 14 hours with Cain before I received an epidural so this is wonderful!!

My water was broke around 9:15 this morning and the OB said I was already 3cm dilated.  She feels that I will have this baby by 3:00 today.  I guess we will see!

Last night before I went to bed I worked on making treat bags for the nurses and our visitors.  I think they turned out cute.  Oh what I would give to eat one of the oreo's right now.  Thankfully the nurse has given me 2 popsicles and ice chips.  But the chocolate covered oreo's and ritz crackers look great right now.

My parents are already starting to spoil this little girl before she even arrives.  Thanks to her MiMi and Poppa she will have pretty little jewelry to wear home from the hospital.  Her first little ring and a cute little pearl bracelet.

She wasn't the only girl who received new jewelry.  My more than awesome husband gave me a "push" present last night.  He gave me a pretty bracelet with a pink stone in the center.  I love it and obviously love him too!!

I know my parents are dying for Cain to wake up from his nap.  They are at our house taking care of him but I can tell my mom is very ready to get to the hospital.  I know as soon as he wakes up they will bring him up here to see his momma and daddy and hopefully be able to meet his new sister soon.
