Hello ladies! Well, our little bundle of joy decided to arrive a day earlier than her scheduled arrival date! I started having contractions that were 10 minutes apart around 4 AM on the 11th. I also noticed blood and mucus when I went to the bathroom, so I called the doctor. He had me go to the hospital, and when they checked my cervix, I was 2 cm. (I was still closed at my appointment the day before.) My BP was also through the roof again, so, they decided to do the C-Section on the 11th. While it was a whirlwind of emotions, being totally prepared for my C one day and being told it was the day before, everything went super smoothly.

And I was TOTALLY shocked when they pulled out our beautiful BABY GIRL! I would have bet my life savings that we were having a boy!
