Rebekah's birth did not go as planned. I joke that I must have had
the longest labor in history because I started feeling pretty strong contractions on
Friday night. They were strong enough to keep me from getting a good night's sleep, and we
were hoping that this was the real thing. The contractions kept going strong and regular
throughout the day Saturday, only stopping or decreasing in intensity when I made
breakfast and went shopping that day. Certainly this had to be it - we expected to hold
our baby sometime in the next 24 hours.
