For those of you who want more details… It’s now about 7:30 am and we have every reason to believe this baby will be here by 9 or 9:30. We had hoped to sleep most of the night last night, but that didn’t really happen. Rachel’s contractions got fairly intense and she ended up getting her epidural around 2:30 am. There was a little while there where we thought the baby might come in the middle of the night, but the epidural seemed to slow things down. The plan is to break her water at about 8:15 am and then things should really start to happen pretty fast.
Rachel is feeling great. We’re ready to meet this little guy! We’ll post again later.
