Since I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of my cousin AND my first birth photog experience I decided I want to blog about the whole thing, not just the pictures at the end.
Last Sunday I got the long awaited text of…I may be in labor. Tori let me know she had been having contractions for several hours. They were 5-1-1 (5 minutes apar, 1 minute long, for 1 hour) but her Dr. could tell over the phone they weren’t intense enough. So she waited. 2 hours later, they had definitely picked up in intensity. She and husband Garret headed to the hospital. I was bouncing off the walls with excitement. I double checked my bag, made sure I was dressed comfortably, and made the necessary phone calls saying I may not be at work the next day. And then I waited. Thank goodness for the DVD set of Friends. Ironically, the episode where Phoebe has triplets was on. I just knew it was a sign. Around 8 I checked in and she wasn’t progressing so they were staying for another hour. About an hour later they were sent home. Her contractions were great but she wasn’t progressing any.
I was fully anticipating a call in the middle of the night saying, “OK, here we go!” but no such luck. We were all disappointed that Wyatt didn’t make his appearance last weekend and I know that Tori and Garret are so ready for him to be here! It was so much fun getting those texts and anticipating what was going to happen. I can’t wait for the next text/call!!
