All is going well. Her water has broken and she is progressing smoothly. The contractions are getting stronger. Christy has assumed her favorite labor position and is rocking back and forth on the yoga/labor ball.

Keep the posts and e-mails coming. I'm reading them to Christy and she's enjoying it.

OK, notice the pit drip! We're drippin now baby! Maybe I'll be holding a sweet baby and eating lunch at the same time! I'm thinking happy thoughts, praying serious prayers. The contractions are coming closer now. How is it I never remember just how intense they get? It's ok, I'll get something precious for the pain.

Here's a pick of the monitor showing my contractions and Cora's heartbeat. She is such an active little thing! Sometimes it sounds like she's sprinting in there!

Not much going on here yet. I'm about to get a shower before they start the pitocin drip. Hoping that little drip thing will get this show on the road. I'm getting excited to see little Cora (and not feel her poking my ribs.) Funny story...Luke started getting really excited about seeing Cora yesterday. It was so sweet. Just before Kelvin and I were leaving he started begging us to give her two middle names. He said, "Her name can be Cora LeeAnne Sally Dunnam!" I told him we would have to see. Mom told me last night he and Carleigh were talking about playing with Cora after she comes home. Mom reminded them she would be sleeping and laying around a lot for a pretty long time, and Luke said after about a week she should be good to go, huh? ;) Carleigh made Cora a pretty rainbow picture and wrote her a note telling Cora to "have a great time in the hospital. Love, your big sister Carleigh" PRECIOUS!
We're at the hosptial. I've been having miniature contractions, but nothing serious yet. I have progressed a little since I was checked Monday, so that's good news. I'm hoping things start progressing soon. I would really like to see this precious little doll before lunch tomorrow. Hope that's not too optimistic! Thanks for the prayers!

  9. We enjoyed pizza for lunch with the girls and PawPaw brought lots of yummy desserts! We made a trip to Petco and the boys had a taste of doggie treats! (Organic cookies) Luke said, "the next time I come here I will tell them no thank you!" What a character! Hang in there baby!

Emma's pictures remind me ALOT of my Darby at her age and I feel an extra special connection or something to her. Won't she be amazed at this new little creature in the house? I know your family is gonna enjoy some wonderful times as you transition in the next few weeks. And you will have a hilarious sense of humor about it all as you blog. Sure wish I was there to help you. Love and prayers, Jill
