39 weeks!!!

Today we went in for our 39 week appointment. Let me start by saying I did not sleep well due to discomfort and I kept waking from dreams about my water breaking. I was up for the day by 5:45 and Morris and Taylor had made muffins. Yum! At 5:56AM I had my first contraction. The Second at 6:06 AM. We then started to get ready and decided to go ahead and pack everything up as if we were not coming home. I continued to have contractions but was not taking the time to measure them. Our appointment was 8:45 so we dropped Taylor at school and headed to the hospital. My weight was good but my Blood Pressure was high...131/84. Morris' heart rate was hard to find but sounded good when we found it. He has his back on my left side of my belly and is head down.  *Pause for contraction* Then the doctor came in to check me. He said immediately that I was sitting on go at a solid 3cm dilated and 80% effaced. He asked if I was having contractions and I said yes. I did however fail to mention that they were 5 minutes apart starting at 7:30. We left the hospital and ran to Chick-fil-a for breakfast. My contractions have progressed some. They are more intense and are now closer to 3min apart. I would like to stay away from the hospital as long as I can, but I think I am making Morris very nervous. I just want to make sure this is true labor and not just a false alarm. 

We did hang the planes in the nursery last night and I love the way they turned out. When I get home I will take a picture and post it. Also, I will take my picture then as well, unless we go to the hospital to stay.
Please be praying for us and Morris. Pray that this is a safe delivery and that Morris is strong and Healthy! We know that he will come whenever God is ready for us to meet him.  For Now...
