This is it!

Each night that I have kissed my wife goodnight over the last week I have jokingly said 'wake me at 3am with contractions'. Well... This morning she did! It's now almost 5am and currently the contractions are 7 minutes apart lasting 1 minute.

I could attribute this to the regular walks we have been taking, the conversations I have been having with Baby Mac letting him/her know that it's time and I'll explode for sure if s/he doesn't come soon, or even the Labour Cake I baked yesterday (recipe to come in a following blog) but I think baby is just ready :)

We are just chilling In our bedroom, trying to not wake her mum, because it's not time for the news to start spreading through our families yet... She's doing so well, just as I knew she would. She's focused, strong and in between contractions, she's still able to have a giggle with me :) I'm sitting here grinning like a cheshire cat (trying not to when she's actually having a contraction, that would just be mean!)

Ok, signing off now. I'll be back when it's all over!
