My due date had come and gone. And every day after felt like torture. Not because I was uncomfortable–yes, I didn’t feel completely amazing–it was because every. single. person. was texting me or calling me asking if I had gone into labor yet. Nope. No baby. I was still pregnant. And I was doing ALL the things to encourage our little guy to enter the world (minus the castor oil). But finally early Wednesday morning, October 18th, 2017, I woke up at 2:40am with contractions. It was finally happening. I was ecstatic and I was ready. I was finally going to get to meet our baby and become a mother. Here is our birth story. 🙂
