     Welcome to the birth story post.
     Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 at 1:09pm, we welcomed Harlow Grace into the world: 20 inches long, 8lbs 1oz, and a whole head of hair.

     Sunday night, we go to Labour and Delivery because I'm feeling weird and contractions every 4-10 mins. I was told not to chance it, so we went early. I was 5cm dilated and told to walk around for an hour. No change, so sent home.
     Monday, I had a stretch & sweep. I guess it got everything going.
     Tuesday, cramping and pain. Went to Labour and Delivery again. Sent home again as there was no change.
     Wednesday, up all night with contractions. Around 3am, we went because I was about 5 mins apart. They check and I am 6cm dilated. I get to stay and wait it out. It was a busy day.
No change after hours of waiting, except my contractions have stopped.
Around 11am, they break my water.
Harlow arrived around 1:09pm.
Believe me when I say that I prefer butt babies over head babies.
     We had to wait in our birthing room until almost 6pm for them to find us a room. It was so busy that I got a semi-private room for free.

     Everything is perfect about her, even if we have to keep an eye on her for jaundice & she has a bad lip tie (that we're getting fixed).

What's been going on..

     This Thursday, I am 39 weeks.
I am currently blogging from the bath tub due to contractions.
     Contractions started Sunday at 9:30am and went until about 7pm. We went to Labour and Delivery where we found out I was already 5cm dilated. They wanted us to stay and walk around for 2 hours. No change. We were sent home. Contractions were not as intense..until bed time. They started and went on all night: 40seconds long, intervals of 10 mins.
     Monday, I had a doctor's appointment and had a sweep done. Thankfully, my mom came over and put Kaelynn down for a nap, while I napped. I started to lose some plug around dinner time.           
Contractions all night long again.
     Kaelynn went to her great aunts house.for the morning/afternoon. Daddy and I went to Labour and Delivery again.
Everything was still the same.

     Everything is still the same. Contractions every 10 mins that last 40 seconds or longer.
