We just named our baby girl, Finley (born in January). I agree that Finlay would be pronounced with a long a sound.
Finley Grace arrived 1-2-08 after 5 hours of active labor. We had a water birth at home and it was great! She weighed in at 9 lbs 6 oz. Birth story to come.
my water broke today at 4pm - still no regular contractions. hoping something gets started soon. i feel for you starry mama
40 w 3 days nothing new to report. Midwife appt today - we're going to strip my membranes on Wed. I know its highly controversial here but personally for me I'm feeling ok with it. My last babe was 10 lbs with shoulder dystocia and I really don't want another baby with SD again if I can help it. Who knows it may not even work. Good luck stelli and starrymama!
40 w 2 d nothing happening here. so i think they're is like 5 of us left?

DS was posterior and this one was anterior for pretty much the last trimester through birth, though she would flip often, I could usually get her back in the right spot. I was SO worried that she would be posterior and therefore post dates again like DS. Are you...

oh yeah, and she's sitting posterior another posterior labor - you would think that in 3 labors I could have one be anterior!
wow so many labors going on - i think that means I'll be the last one left. due today - no real changes. starting to freak a little mainly b/c my last baby was 10 lbs at 10 days past my due date. he got stuck and I really wanted to avoid that this time. that and I'm cranky yelling my kids and dh. : good luck to all those in labor!
