And We're Off...

12:52 am.

Off to the hospital.

Contractions four minutes apart and hurting like proper motherfuckers. My cervix BETTER BE COOPERATING, IS ALL I'M SAYING.

Jason will update soon.

Yeay you. I'm gonna go kiss MY little boy while I think of you and yours. (Right my little man and his daddy are sleeping all curled up. Cutest thing. I wish you many nights of looking at the same scene in your house and feeling as happy and melty as I do.)

callistawolf

WOO HOO! (I just got the strangest look from my husband for cheering and doing the dance of joy when I read this entry) I'm so excited for you guys, I can't wait to hear the report!

Congratulations!!

kerri

Hooray! and hope all is well!

Broad

God, I hope this is it for everyone!

Best of luck, and hoping for the shortest labor EVER in the history of labor -- I mean, once you're properly where you're supposed to be and not in the car or anything cliche like that.

Sassafras

Woohoo! I'm on-the-edge-of-my-seat excited for you both! Best of luck and go the many and varied swear words! (stoicism is for those with no imagination, I say)

Franci

Keep up the good work - either it is dilating, delivering, or simply *just* posting these notes we all like so much.

naeiri

it would be beyond awesome if you guys updated during hardxcore labor time.

tooooo funny.

Katie

Good luck guys!

Roxie

Yeah! Can't wait to see Babalah! Sending you happy, loving vibes! Congratulations, if the wee one makes an appearance while I'm sleeping! I'll check back in the morning (pacific time).

Sensitive Soul

Holy Crap! I clicked over her for the 10th or so time today, feeling a little stalkerish, not really expecting to see this update!
I hope this is really it, and that your labour is everything you want it to be! Thinking of you guys.

Leahtg

Good Luck!!! (and i hope the motherfucker contractions don't hurt too much)

cheryl b.

Woo Hoo!!!!! Come on Babalah!

Zoe

Good luck! I hope you get through everything ok! Can't wait to see Babalah! More exclamations points are always good luck!!!!!!

blackbird

de-lurking to squeal with excitement!

Dawn

I woke up this morning and just knew that you were in labor (I'm in Europe so it's still middle of the night for NA). I could feel it. Then I was so excited to see my feeliing confirmed by your update! I'm so excited! A new baby is coming into the world today, people!
I'm sending my best thoughts your way, praying that the labor is short and as pain-free as possible.
I can't wait to hear from Jason!

Sarah King

Congratulations! I hope eveything is going smoothly right now.

Is it weird that I keep thinking that this was the day I guessed, so it's my fault you've been waiting?

Léonie

Wow! So exciting. Come out little Babalah!
Congratulations, Amy and Jason.

Joke Aerts

Like Dawn, I am in Europe too. Hearing this news this morning is the best news EVER. Good luck Amalah! Lots of people are thinking about you and your family today!!!!

Hooray Babalah!

I hope that by the time I'm typing this, you are getting to know your new son, and I hope you had good drugs so it didn't hurt too much!!
Wooooo Hoooo!!!

Ames

I keep refreshing this page. So glad to hear it's happening!

And I bet you'll look stylish even in the throes of labour. Good luck!

Kentucky_Kitty

RockStar Mommy

Just wanted to add to them 82374239874326752314987213 emails you are going to have by the time you get home, and probably never find the time to read like me, to tell you good luck (but you won't need it), congratulations, and I can't wait to see him! Our kids can be virtual blogging buddies.

Megan

OMG, I'm so excited! Jason, please write an update for the love of all that is good!

Have never posted but this is such a special occasion, congratulations Amy, Jason, and little mister not-as-squishy-anymore...happiness and health to everyone!

Kristy

Good time for a first comment! I was actually telling my husband last night that I wish you'd hurry up and have that baby. He looked at me like I was insane. Congratulations! Can't wait to see your beautiful baby boy!

LCA

I never liked babies and I always thought labor and delivery were gross and icky...until I started reading you, and now I'm all about your wonderful son (you get to call him a SON now because he's HERE!) and the coolness and all the details of the delivery. Look what you've done to me. :-D

I hope everything's going well and I can't wait to hear more. I just got to work and I have a hunch I will get nothing (besides refreashing amalah.com) done today.

Sheryl

Squee! Come out Babala, we want to see you!

Frema

My boyfriend actually saw your update first, he who has not refreshed your Web page several times an hour. At first I thought he was toying with my emotions.

I will keep your family in my prayers.

anna

Since you won't be reading this until after baby boy is here, Congrats! I'm sending easy labor vibes your way.

alfredsmom

Hey! Maybe you will still get the saphires instead of the opals! Yeah!

Lucy

Congratulations! It's a beautiful day for a baby!

Peyton

YEA!!!!! I'm SO FREAKIN' EXCITED! :-)

honestyrain

Jenny

DUDE! So exciting!

Joy

Hoooray!!!!

I have to tell you that I got up early just to check your site this morning. Hello Amy, meet the Internet, we are crazy obsessed.

In a NICE non-stalkerish way. I promsie.
