I had Ella Sunday at 10:54am. I woke up at 5am feel like I had bad gas. I figured it was that or labor, but i was pretty certain it wasn't labor, I was just sick. I went into L&D and I was apparently in labor! 4 hours after we showed up we had a beautiful baby girl (37w, 1d). I'll put the birth story up later, but it's feeding time again.

Oh my, this is SO exciting to see babies being born already! I really hope I'm lucky enough to have a shorter labor and not have to wait until 40+ weeks to see my little guy.

SAHM to DS (11/08) and EDD 3/8/11!
