Things You Don't Expect

There have been a lot of surprises during the pregnancy. I thought babies kicked - I didn't realize that sometimes they poked their elbow into your side and then moved it across your body. I thought Noelle would have crazy cravings - I didn't think she would stop being able to stomach certain foods (we miss you, chicken). I thought the epidural would help Noelle make it through contractions - I didn't think it would be so nice that she could sleep through contractions.

Things have quieted down and Noelle is sleeping again. It will be a while before we meet Tator Tot, but Noelle is no longer in as much pain, so all is so much better.

glad to know she got the epidural pretty quickly. Sometimes you have to wait a while before they come and give it. Get some sleep too if you can... you may be up at 3am helping her push! xo
