we got to the delivery room around 6:30 am, got diana into the bed and ready for the big events. she and i started to make the phone calls to different family members to let them know what was going on. most of them were mobilized and on their way! back in the delivery room things started slowly for diana, the contractions coming harder and harder. by around 10:15 she was ready for her epidural. right around that time her mom and sister arrived. she was really happy to have them with her for this whole thing! both of them are nurses, so we knew we were going to be totally taken care of- not everyone who comes to the hospital has their own nurse entourage!
