SHE'S IN LABOR Jamie & Baby Aria 1 child; Ahmeek, Michigan 2740 posts

I'm so excited! My big "sister" is in labor! She called me at 12 and said she woke up out of a dead sleep, to a soaked bed, and didn't wake her SO yet, just called me to get my take. She said she had pink and I said bloody show, she agreed. But she had no contractions, as of yesterday she was a 2 and 85% effaced and her OB said no way she'd make it past Friday. She was due the 28th but they changed it to the 23rd at her last US a few weeks ago.



She just called L&D to see if she should labor at home or go in. They said go in. I'm so excited for her! I hope she has him quick, she was really hoping to stay home and labor until she gets contractions, she only had a couple in the half hour we talked. And she talked through them, said they really weren't bad at all and she's had BH that hurt worse.



Fingers crossed she has an easy labor and delivery! And that she gets to still walk and what not if she isn't progressing. Her biggest fear is them making her go in, still being a 2 or 3 and them making her stay there. She said she wants to stay home and labor.



Ahhh but the main point of this is I'm getting a nephew tonight or at least sometime today! 4/25/13 Lyle <3 If he makes it to midnight the 26 he'll be 8 months younger exactly than Aria lol.

I told her that too. haha. But she was so nervous about having him in the car so she called to see their take on it, since she was just checked yesterday. And they said come in. I told her to ask them to let her go home IF she isn't too dilated. But I know they say 24 hours after the water breaks.

They probably won't let her go with broken water. That why I hate hospitals :( they're so finicky. But then they'll let women go home who have broken water preterm. I just dont get it.

lol I was due the same day as one of my dd buddies on here, we added each other on facebook.. Her water broke on the 25 of August but she had him on the 26th. I texted her as I was going to the hospital on the 26th.. I'm like, "You're never going to believe this.." she's like "NO WAY!" I'm like "YES! My water broke!!". lol
August 26th seems like it was a popular day to pop out the kiddos!!

Lol aww! I was due Sept 24 and my DD buddy was due the 25th, I had DD August 26 and she had him Sept 18, we were both induced though lol. I had pre-e and she had gestational diabetes.



But both had healthy kids that's the best. And I know! Lol nobody I know IRL has that Birthday though lol.

Me either. That's why I was conflicted on what to tell her. I figured what they'd say but I told her I was more comfortable with her calling just to check in, and just hope they'd let her labor at home.



But I said it was better to have to go in and at least hopefully walk around than stay home without calling and have him in the car or something. She could've (not likely) dilated lots more in the last day, so I hope so! Then she at least won't have to be stuck in there bored to tears.
