Well... we didn't have to wait long!
THE Bump @ 40 Weeks

I felt a little off Wednesday morning and decided not to go into work.
Good thing!
By 4 p.m. I was starting to feel some real contractions and by 6:30 p.m. when we called my mom to come over, they were in full swing!

We labored at home until about 8:15 p.m.   
then headed off the the hospital.

We checked in at about 8:30 p.m. and Iris made her appearance just after midnight.
What a ride. And it's just beginning!
