Baby is coming... 3 hours after my mom brought back my son and dogs. My water broke while hubby was giving DS1 a bath. My mom is driving back here, it'll take her an hour. The ride to the hospital is an hour. My car is full of cat and dog food from donations we just picked up earlier today for my rescue. Hubby needs to unload it. I need to go shower. Fun...

I know you're at the hospital by now, probably even had your baby by now, but good luck and congrats in advance. I'm so jealous!

Thanks! The labor went from slow to fast... well... fast. The neighbor came over to stay at our house until my mom got there and I got the heck out of there. I was convinced I'd have him in the car. But we made it... I was 5 cm. They eventually gave me an epidural 2 hours later and then I rested for 2 hours, 1 hour of pushing and baby Josh came. 10lbs 1 oz. Minimal tearing... everything went very well. Thanks!!!!

Congrats on your big, beautiful, healthy boy! I'm convinced our babe will come at a less than convenient time (goes without saying with four kids and two dogs), but I guess it all works out in the end, huh?
