Category Archives: Contractions

32 hours later…

I just phoned Jeff (it’s 11:13am on Wednesday), to see how things are going…

Sam is still in labour – her contractions are now 2 min. apart and lasting about 1 min. each.

That’s really all I know for now. I’ll post again when something more exciting happens.


Sam’s water broke at 11:55am today, and she’s now 6cm. YAY! I asked if this means we’ll be saying hello to the new one today… and Sam assured me that s/he will arrive today, even if she has to reach in and pull it out herself. Ahhh…Sam,SMILE


Labour Update

Just got a call from Jeff…

Sam is 3cm dialated and her contractions are 5 min. apart.

They are going out for lunch, and then heading back to the hospital to have the baby! I’m so excited!

Now the question is… Boy or Girl??

I’ll post more when I hear from Jeff again.



Various and Sundry

Sitting at home, chillin.

Sam is tired, she’s been up since before 3am. She just had a contraction at 10:37 – so we are measuring to find the next one before we call our Mom’s back and give them the update. Also, more to the point for Sam, she can try and get some sleep after the next one.

We went shopping this morning, washed the truck. Put the infant seat in. Bought some necessities.

Now we’re sitting at home, so I did a geeky test, this is the result I got.

You are a dog
Or maybe you are a mosquito, you certainly can’t be human.The highest pitched ultrasonic mosquito ringtone that I can hear is 21.1kHz
Find out which ultrasonic ringtones you can hear!

I figured I’d take the test online, and find out what is the highest of the “silent” ringtones I can here.  Turns out I have pretty good ears still, surprisingly.

More later.


I added Erin from to our blog as a contributer.  She should be able to login and post an update if need be.  You can phone me Erin if you like, or I can phone you once things get moving and we know it’s not false labor.

I hope you don’t mind that I just imposed  on you by selecting you to be our update person. ;)


Sam’s been having contractions since about 3am.  They’re still about 20 mins apart, but regular.  We’re planning that we might have to go to the hospital today.

I’ll update here and by phone when I get the chance – if I can’t get to here I’ll phone Erin and give her my password so she can update.
