Heart Attack time

I'm off to the hospital, 5 hours ahead of schedule. Why? Well at midnight I started having contractions which were pretty strong and pretty regular. About 3 minutes apart. They started to slow down and my last trip to the bathroom I kind of heard a plop. As I've said I don't turn on the light but I did then and looked in the toilet and it was full of blood. Maybe full isn't totally accurate but I almost fainted when I saw it. I never expected that much if this is just "bloody show." In a panic I called my doctor and now we're off. My contractions seemed to have slowed/stopped so nothing will probably happen before 6 am still, but that blood still scares the shit out of me. I'm looking forward to being in a hospital right now.

(and if you are wondering why I'm blogging right now instead of on my way, I'm waiting for Sloth to get his crap together. And then we're off!

Oh, and no one ever told me there would be that much bloody show (seriously I asked the nurse to check me b/c I thought my water had broke!)

I thought everyone would want to know that Mama and the baby are great. She had him at around 6:40pm via C-section, but everything is fine. He is 8 lb 15 oz and 21 inches long. Mama and baby will be in the hospital until Friday, but I'm sure she'll update you all as soon as she gets home. Right now she's just resting and hoping to keep down ice chips!
