Saturday Night Fun Timing Contractions

So a couple of hours the contractions started to REALLY hurt. And now our Saturday night consists of tracking them for a bit. Now I'm going to try to get a little sleep. But here's the direction that we're headed in:

8:45pm- 16 minutes
8:54pm- 9 minutes
9:16pm- 22 minutes
9:25pm- 9 minutes
9:34pm- 9 minutes
9:43pm-9 minutes
9:50pm-7 minutes
9:56pm- 6 minutes
10:02pm- 6 minutes

Yup... Paul really may get his Independence Day Baby!

This is a little reminiscent of last time. Right now I can hear the fire works they're setting off at the local park. When I went into labor with Sadie I was watching lightening and listening to thunder at the start of a storm that started over 2000 fires in our state (that made for a very unpleasant, smoky summer). Saint Elizabeth of Portugal would be neat patron saint for Maggie!


  1. Will you still have to have a c-section if you're in full on labor? I certainly hope not. That's like two for the price of one baby. Yikes!! Hope that it's not too painful for you.

  2. so exciting!!! update when you can :)

  3. :-D Can't wait to here how yall are doing! Gotta love when there's a pattern like that too. My kids had some similarities around the dates, will make a fun story when they're older.

  4. No post since Saturday...

    I am hoping and praying that everything went well and little Maggie is now in your arms.

  5. Haven't heard from you in a few days. Is Maggie on her way?


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
