Someone reminded me that it rained for 40 days and 40 nights in the great flood. Was that you, Tracy? Whomever it was, I don't want rain for that long...while it is seeming like a short, short deadline right now with the baby coming, raining for that long seems never-ending.
HOWEVER, I'm thoroughly not convinced that Conrey is going to be content in there for 40 more days. It's been a rough afternoon, folks. It all started about 1:30-1:45...somewhere in there. What started? Contractions...every 8 minutes for an hour and a half...sometimes every 6 minutes. After that timeframe, they slowed to 10-12 minutes for 45 min or so. Then, it was back to 8. WHAT??? Finally, by about 6 p.m., they had slowed to 15-20 minutes where they currently reside. Yes, it is 9 p.m. and I'm still having contractions every 15-20 minutes. SHEESH! I'm supposed to wait until I have them every 5 minutes for a whole hour before going to the hospital. Um...I think that if they get to every 6-7 min for an hour, I might go and fib. Do you KNOW how quick my labor went last time? I started contracting at 6:30 and Cassie was born at 11:13. For tonight, though, it looks like labor is not organizing and I'll be okay.
Mentally, I am so not prepared for him to come right now. Physically...well, you all know how that's been. However, I do feel a bit jipped for all of these contractions with no baby. Oh, well...he's safe in there and is getting stronger every day that he's in there. I trust that God will have him come out when he's ready and not until then. Let's just leave the contractions until...well...then. :)
