That was a beautiful article that was posted. Thank you for sharing (all of you!) This is a great thread to come and visit on the day after a rough night. The beautiful thing is that you will never have 2 nights the same, and that you know that you are really not alone. Moms and babes around the world are all going through the same thing.

On an aside.. I think the term "ring of fire" should be abandoned. It is a stretching sensation - makes sense, as your baby's head is coming down the birth canal.... I did not have any ring of fire with my 3rd bb who was born at home in water. I did experience what I would call stretching pain with my second baby who was born at home out of the water.
