Baby Tries to Join Shower!

What an eventful weekend! Friday night I started having contractions at about 10PM. I tried ignoring them as my baby showers were the next day and I was pretending that they were not happening! wink! (Keeping in mind of course that I have been having contractions since week 25 and thought they would settle with sleep). Then, at 3:30AM the contractions were about 4 minutes apart - no more ignoring! We called the doctor and it just so happened that my doctor was the one on call... so lucky for us! We got settled into the hospital at around 4AM and they gave me a shot to slow contractions (By then they were about 2 minutes apart). I was one centimeter dilated and 80 percent effaced for those of you that know what all that means! At around 7 I got another shot and then my doctor let me go at around 9:30 knowing I had showers! I threw on my dress and my mother and grandmother got me to my lovely shower at the junior league just in time for the 11:30 shower! The shower was absolutely wonderful and we got so many nice things! Thank you so much Nancy, Elise and Emily for such a special lunch!
