I was up all evening on April 19th with consistent contractions every 3-8 minutes. With Calvin's delivery process I was sent home from triage FOUR times, and as a result I am incredibly paranoid about raising the alarms for just the early phases of labor. I sent my mom a text suggesting she get on a plane in the next 24 hours, then went downstairs to watch Harry Potter for the billionth time and to try to get some sleep.
In light of that miracle, we collectively decided that God would grant us one more miracle soon. Sure enough, the next day after going to breakfast and walking City Creek Mall downtown, my contractions got consistent enough for me to go in for a labor check at the IMC triage. It was an incredible circus act of exchanging car seats, leaving kids with husbands, coordinating rides to the hospital, and getting admitted for labor and delivery. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and in this case it took a village of Worsley and Monson family to birth this child. I am forever grateful for everyone's sacrifice and contribution.
