Saturday I woke up and planned on having an eventful day, but my list included getting my pre-clinic done at Gritman, Go home, clean and head over to my baby shower at my parents house. After the shower, go home and clean a little more, go to friends baby shower and then go home and enjoy the rest of my Saturday.

Instead, it went something like this:

8:00- went to Gritman for pre-clinics. (filling out paper work) Had one small contraction, which I thought was my stomach wishing I would have had breakfast first.

9:00- went home- starting feeling a few contractions.

9:30- Called my husband in a panic because contractions were 3 1/2 minutes apart. Husband---out playing paintball and out of cell coverage range. Called my mom instead. Luckily I got a hold of one of Matt's friends who he was playing with.

10:00- Arrived at Gritman and got checked in.

10:20- Matt arrived at Hospital. He would not have made it if we would not have been able to get in touch with him. Thanks Logan for having your phone on you!

10:40-Dr. Arrived at hospital.

10:45-started pushing

11:03- Emily decided to make her grand entrance.

At one point the nurse told me that an epidural was not going to happen, which made the decision of wanting one or not really easy. I did not even have time to change into a gown. I was pretty nervous because I had not really prepared myself a whole lot. I had packed a bag for the hospital, although it was not completely packed. I still had 2 weeks in my mind since her due date is not until September 13th. Emily had other plans.

Baby, Daddy, and Mommy are all doing well at home. We got to come home today (Monday August 31) even though we were really hoping for last night. She is beautiful and has cute little chubby cheeks.
