This post is long overdue. I guess in the midst of having a baby, some things just temporarily go out the window. But this is one post I have been wanting to write and share, I just haven't really been ready to divulge this private part of life yet. However, a lot of people have been asking me about it, and someday Addy can read about it, so here we go.
On the way to the hospital we got lost. haha. So typical. We took a wrong turn and eventually made our way through the traffic to the right part of town. I told Nick I was super hungry since I hadn't eaten much that day and if I really was in labor then I wouldn't be able to eat once I was admitted to the hospital until after the baby was born. I wanted a burger. (Don't judge a pregnant woman!) He stopped at a little diner about a mile down the road from the hospital. He ran inside to get us some burgers and I kid you not, it took over 20 minutes! So here I am in the parking lot of this sketchy, abandoned-looking diner having contractions every 4 minutes trying not to look pathetic as I bend over to hold onto something when one hits. He came back with the burgers, and they're like half-pound patties. I almost gagged. I could've just gone to Dairy Queen.
Life has been harder, more tiring, more beautiful and more full of joy ever since. And I'd do it all again in a heartbeat.
