Waiting On Tanner

Well, my sister has been having contractions for a couple of days now.  She went to the hospital day before yesterday...well, around 11:30 p.m.  with contractions.  They were 3-5 minutes apart, but only every other one was a hard contraction.  So they sent her home and told her not to return till she could no longer stand the pain, and to take Tylenol for pain.  She went back to the hospital this morning around 4:30 a.m.  I was so smart as to leave my cell phone at home on the night stand beside the bed.  So I called my mom mid morning.  She said Renell had an epidural and was somewhat relaxed.  Relaxed?  I thought the idea was to be stressed in order to get that thing out!!  Anyway, it's mid afternoon now, and I still haven't heard anything.  I will call later to find out.  But his name will be Tanner Lewis.  I'll try to post tomorrow to let you all know about them.

Haha. Is Tanner Renell's first? If so, it could be a long wait.

Good luck to her (and you) and Congratulations when Tanner Lewis joins us! :)

After that much labor, an epidural brings a feeling of euphoria. Know what I did after having mine? Propositioned my anesthesiologist! (Only about owing him dinner, though!)

Sending prayers and "hurry up" vibes to your sis and her little buckaroo!

Oh, my. Perhaps having a relaxed cervix will let Tanner slide out faster??? You can see what an expert I am at the birth of a baby... Anyway, may Tanner have all fingers, toes, nose, and be a healthy, happy little baby!

This is a whole new point of view on childbirth. And I thought I came here to read about chickens, lol.
