he's HATCHING!!

I won't get into too many details but in short:

We are officially in Labor and Delivery Room 3!!

I was not able to get here pageant-style this go-round...my contractions hurt like the deadliest of all sins.

The epidural is hands down the most spectacular and necessary creation of all time.

I'm numb, numb, numb and have a self-administer button. That makes me feel professional but with a touch of drug addict on the side.

My Triage nurse was no good and hit a "valve" she called it while trying to put in the IV and she sprung a leak in my arm. Heinous. JR was not happy, neither was my arm. Evil thoughts started swirling in my mind.

I am comfortably at 4 cm, and the dr broke my water so CHEERS!!

Cheers to baby hatching, praying the rest goes smoothly and that our sweet tiny makes a safe and healthy arrival into this world...

We will keep you posted as he continues his hatching!
