THE STORY: So it was Monday morning and Todd went off to work, and I quickly got all the kids ready to go to my last doctors appointment. As I was leaving I had the thought to grab my bags and the car seat just in case. But brushed it off because of my deep state of depression. You see this was the longest I had ever been pregnant with only four days until my due date, and doing everything possible one can think of to go into labor. I mean I tried everything from eating a lot of chocolate, mowing the lawn, weeding the garden, picking raspberries, sweeping out the garage, and cleaning the entire house. Dont' let me forget the two mile walks. Nothing I felt nothing. I was sure I had not dilated from my last appointment when I was a depressing one cm. We made the drive to rexburg where I dropped the kids off at aunt Jessicas and headed to my appointment with the plan of going shopping with jessica and taking the kids swimming later that day. however, plans change when the doctor checked me told me I was at a 4, and 75% ephased. He changed my induction day from friday to the next morning. However, I paniked you see with my first baby I as at a four with High blood pressure and they sent me straight to the hospital. It was there that I went from a four to a seven without feeling any of my contraction. So I voiced my concerns to the doctor that I would make the forty minute drive home be in labor and not know it, and not make it back in time to the hospital. So, for my own piece of mind the doctor hooked me to a monitor and sure enough I was in labor and didn't know it. how does one not know they are in labor you ask. Well and i can't ansewer that because I just don't know. I was having contractions every minute and a half and I dialated from a 4 to a 5 in a very short half hour. The doctor told me to go straight to the hospital. Jessica went with me at first stayed with me until Todd could get things settled at work and grab my bags. I'm just glad he made it, Thank goodness for epidurals slowing down the labor process. Anyway, other than not being prepared to have a baby that day with no bags and yes, I had not shaved my legs yet, the delivery went well and we now have this beautiful little baby in our home.
