It's Baby Time, People!!!!

Baby Updater Jessica here...and I have some GREAT news!!!

Heather has been admitted to the hospital! Her contractions got stronger than usual this morning so her and Adam came to the hospital around 1:00. Her water broke while she was in triage, and she's since been admitted into her own room! Around 3:00 she was dialted to 3cm, and now at 5:00, she is up to 8cm! 100% effaced, and resting nicely. After some pretty intense contractions and wondering "How are we not extinct? People do this more than once??" she's gotten an epidural and feeling MUCH better. We're in the room now and she's resting for the big event. We have wireless, so I am going to try to post an update later through inevitable tears. Send love and prayers our way!! See you soon Mallory!!!!!!
