On Monday, May 7, I woke up with contractions and so we got our things in order, asked Great Auntie Gaye to come stay with the kids, and headed to the hospital. We got there and checked in at about 11 am. Here I am in my room, sitting on the birthing ball to help the baby move into a better position. She was facing the wrong way (posterior) and I was having back labor for the third time. May 7, 2007.
