Hmmmph.

Just like his mama, this child o’mine is nothing if not prompt.

So this is what it feels like/sounds like when your bag o’ waters breaks.  Interesting.  It went ‘pop’.

No real contractions yet.  I’m sitting here, washing sheets, petting the dog, checking my hospital bag, sending the boy out to install the carseat, and waiting for my doctor to call me back.

In the meantime, a blessed Yom Kippur to you all – Way back in January I told my doc I was due on a high holy day and asked if he’d rather pass me off to an OB who happened to be a goy – or at least a non-practicing Jew.  But did he listen?  Hah.

Wish he’d call.  I’m GBS positive, so I’m assuming I’ll be heading into L&D right away.  Which isn’t the way I wanted to do this, but it’d be good to get the 2 doses of antibiotics so the kiddo doesn’t have to get stuck.

Looks like I might be having a baby today.

Wowza.
