So my eleven days turned into about eleven hours, lol!

Friday morning, July 9th, 12:30am, the contractions started.  I stayed home and monitored their regularity.  They were all over the place so I wasn't sure.  At about 4am or so, I thought my water broke, but waited still.  At 5am I was sure, lol!  So I woke my DH and we hung out til about 6am, packed, showered, ate breakfast and that's when the contractions started getting crazy painful.

We got to St. Joseph's Hospital here in Phoenix at about 7am, got admitted to Triage, and the contractions were getting so bad.  They couldn't "find" my cervix, that's because I was already a 10 when I got there, lol!  The urge to push got intense and the pain, holy moly, they wheeled me into L&D, started an IV to try to give me SOMETHING for the pain, but we never made it that far, lol!  At 8:06am, my little Andyn made her debut, and Mama had to go it ALL NATURAL!
