i started having contractions at 4am on 9am i still had them but they didn't hurt and they weren't getting closer together. i decided to call Dr P just to get checked, to see if they were false labor or early labor. (papa was planning on going out of town, but not if I was having a baby). well he wasn't in the office yet but they wanted me to go up to labor and deliver ''just to get checked". i wasn't in pain, i could walk/talk/eat through the contractions, etc it was just i was still early. well i get to the hospital and i was still 3 cm (same as monday) so they told me they would re-evaluate me in an hour but that i'd probably be going home. well long story short--they checked me in an hour, I was 4cm. in another hour i was a ''stretchy'' they kept me.

bottom line, peanut was born! i'll add the long story later, right now i'm tired!
Born November 19, 2008 at 7:17 pm. He weighed 6lbs 13oz and is 20 inches long. because he is a bit early, we are having an issue getting his blood sugars to level. i've had to supplement with formula to bring those levels up but otherwise he is doing great, nurses well and sleeps alot! And for those of you who i know are going to ask, no he STILL does not have a name--yet :)

here are a bunch of pics:
