Update

Strong contractions started around 9pm and we got to the hospital around 11:30.  When we arrived I was at 6cm and 100% effaced.  Let me just say that contractions are no fun!!!!  I always wondered if I would know the difference between the real deal and Braxton Hicks - there was no mistaking it!  The hour or so that we were here before I was able to get my epidural was the worst time of my life.  I literally thought someone was killing me. :)  However, once that epidural kicked in I am in the happiest place on earth!  As of about 15 minutes ago I'm at 8 cm, so we're moving right along.  We're going to attempt to get some sleep now...hopefully, the next update will have some pictures.  Good night all!
