Well, it’s here. My other due date, and the contractions. I started contracting during the night. The contractions were light and irregular. Now they are getting stronger. They persist when I walk or move around. They are closer to about ten minutes apart, but still irregular.
We were able to get Mom on a 12:45 mountain time flight from Denver to Norfolk. She arrives on the East Coast around 9 pm. Ben is at work, but he is calling me frequently to check on the progress. He really wants to come home! He had a light schedule and should finish around 4:30, but he might come home before then, depending on what happens.
I finished the laundry and a craft project this morning. Then I vacuumed and emptied the trash. I made sure the baby’s room was ready and moved the hospital bags to the front door. I didn’t know if I would go into labor before induction day, and here I am in labor on my due date!
