13th!

Only a few days left until we meet Button on the 13th! We're both so anxious and excited, we can hardly stand it. I can't sleep due to all of the excitement and R is so physically miserable, she's just dying to get Button out of there!

R is around 5cm dilated and is fully effaced. She's had quite a few contractions, which she describes as "period cramps" accompanied with back pain and the like. I don't know that it's quite Braxton-Hicks, as she's been having those for a long time and she says these feel different. Also, she says her hips hurt a lot, which I'm guessing is her body's way of preparing for birth. Anyway, she really could go into labor any day, so we might see Button before the 13th. How exciting!

Around 5 already? Heck the hard part is getting to 5. Praying for an easy speedy labor for you. Hope things go as planned.
