Haiku Friday: One year ago...

Went into labor
on Easter evening last year.
It was my due date.

Contractions started
9 p.m. No sleep for me,
too busy timing.

Five minutes apart,
but it's not really painful.
Is it false labor?

Three minutes apart.
8 a.m., call off work and
go to hospital.

Four centimeters.
We are having a baby.
I'm so excited!

Ten hours later,
from my body to my arms,
our baby is born.

Happy Easter!

Lovely photo, happy mama! (:

We were the day after Easter last year! It is so cool to find someone else so close in delivery date!

I went egg hunting hugely preggo and then woke up the following morning at 5 a.m. with contractions 5 minutes apart.

All told we were 12 hours from wake up to delivery.

It sounds to me as though we were pretty similar!

Happy Delivery Day!!

I do have an April Ninth baby! He was born about 5:45 p.m.

When was yours?

(This is so neat!)
