Holy shit, I really am a nerd.

Because, holy shit, I’m in labor and I’m posting.

I’ve had strong contractions regularly since about 9:30 and they’ve been no more than 5 minutes apart since 10:30. The midwife has been called. I’m to make my way in when I can no longer talk through the contractions.

He still may not be here today, but he seems to be on his way!

I also started my leave today and, happily, will not be going back to work until December 19th. It feels strange to have no requirements of me except to have and care for this boy. I feel unemployed but with no need to search for a job.

There may not be another update on my site for a while, but be sure to check John’s. We’ll let everybody know when we’re home and be sure to give all the pertinent stats (like how many times I used the F word while pushing; how many times I cursed John for getting me this way; etc…).

Thanks to everybody for your words of encouragment.

Lots of love.
