The Bun has decided that today is a good day for a birthday. Labor began last night. We headed to the hospital two hours before our scheduled C-section -- the one I was grieving over, the one I really wanted to avoid -- and got hooked up to the monitors. And lo and behold....I was contracting every three to four minutes. I've finally started to dilate.

Okay, not much -- obviously not much if they were willing to send us home -- but the ball is rolling. And we're both thrilled!

More soon.....
