So we're in the hospital now. The dear wife is having trouble and it's hard to see her go through it. Labor is something I totally lucked out in not having to do in my life. So we got here around 3am and checked in. This after trying to get things going a few of the natural ways like walking, spicy foods etc. The walking worked the best and got us on a good rhythm of contractions. Then after we'd rest, things would go back to sporatic and inconsistant.
So even though contractions were ranging from 3 mins to 20 mins apart, we came in to see what we could do. The contractions are getting harder and more consistant, but still not catching a regular schedule just yet. Since we're now 8 days over due, we won't be getting sent home, but who knows when this child will be arriving. I'm excited to meet him!
