Five For Friday 1/18/19 & 1/25/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday, Motherhood

I’ve never missed a week in all of the years I have been doing these updates. I guess having a baby is perhaps the best reason for missing a full week for the first time…

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Went to PT on January 15th (my due date). Did not feel any different. Did my exercises and my PT worked on me. That night, I woke up at 2 AM feeling a WHOLE lot different. I had pain I could not talk through. Brad started timing my contractions, and saying we needed to go to the hospital, but I kept fighting him. I did not want them to send me home if I was not in active labor. But as the pain intensified, I finally gave in, after insisting on making the bed first…I’m not sure why that made me feel better, but it did. Weirdo. We got to the hospital in under 10 minutes. I was soon examined, and told I was at a 5! They were admitting me…
  • Twelve hours later, an epidural, being stuck at an 8 for forever, needing Pitocin┬áto move things along, and getting three stitches, we finally met the love of our lives. Ms. Lucia Grace.
