"Within 24 hrs"

I got a response from Jeremy to update - so here we go.

Yesterday my sister took our kids over for a "sleep over". Great time for Danielle to go into labor - right? That's what we were thinking. She started her dinner with leftover eggplant parmesan (see last post). Then I made her "Chicken Tikka Masala" which is a favorite Indian dish with lots of spices. You can probably guess that spicy food is rumored to help bring on labor. We went for a long walk (to help bring on labor). Then, lastly, we watched "Ferris Bueller's" since we were recommended to do so by the accupuncturist (laughter to help bring on labor).

So Danielle woke up at 4AM this morning with contractions. I am at home with her. However, the labor is not progressing much. This is a very weird labor. We sit down and they get very infrequent (every 10-14 mins - but very long). When she walks they get more frequent (like every 4-5 minutes). We were walking for almost an hour but it hasn't seemed to help much.

The other 2 labors progressed much quicker. Danielle's labor with Anya went took 2 1/2 hrs from the first contraction. Her first labor (Clay) seemed to progress much faster than this is going too. This labor seems to be like the end of her pregnancy - a guessing game of waiting and confusion. We are getting pretty frustrated - and are worrying that the labor will just die off.

If your read the last post you will recall that the accupuncturist thought Danielle would go into labor within 24 hours. We are hoping this is the real deal and that it doesn't go away.

If you think of it, prayers are welcomed.

You could have watched that video from Beloit for a good laugh, but we never played there so I guess you couldn't.
