I had to leave the baby sans diaper on the floor because I couldn’t finish changing her without running to the bathroom. I have no idea what’s wrong but I want to die.
One of the other spouses here is going to take her after her morning nap for a bit. The Capt should be done at 3/3:30 ish.

My husband I just had particularly good sex. But following he decided to compare my naked body to sexy cars. It worked… ish. Like I knew what he was trying to say, but I had to laugh as he stammered through the comparison.
Also, new parent moment. If you’re not familiar with Elmo’s World, cherish it. If you are, you might understand. Basically Elmo ends every episode, covering a topic he’s interested in, with a song. Which is the same word repeated over and over to the tune of Jingle Bells (well, except the farming episode, which was “farm, farm” etc to the tune of Old MacDonald). As we’re getting under the covers for bed, The Captain chuckles. I ask what, he says it’s inappropriate. His head was full of “sex, sex, sex…. sex, sex, sex” etc.
Post-coital talk used to include grabbing a beer and discussing how exactly to get food without putting on pants. Now it’s Elmo. Life.

aka the birth story. The generally safe version will appear to all, but a more detailed account (no pictures, don’t worry) will appear after a jump.
The short of it is Tuesday night/Wednesday morning last week my water broke @ 1:30 am. By 6:30 I called the doctors and they recommended I come in for a check. They hooked me up to the monitors, did an internal and found that baby was good, I was contracting regularly and the amniotic sac did rupture so although I was expecting to be sent home, instead I was locked into a hospital bed.
I labored all day - I tried IV pain meds which worked for about 20 minutes. By 3 in the afternoon it was time to cave and get the anesthesiologist in there for an epidural. By 11 pm I was so exhausted and just wanting to be done. The doctor finally started to talk about pushing around 1 am. There was a clash of opinions between the doctor & my nurses so I didn’t actually start pushing until closer to 1:20. Got her out remarkably fast from there, official birth time was 1:47 am.
And for more on this TMI Tuesday, after the jump.
