I delivered a beautiful 5lb15oz girl tonight after 36 hours of labor that culminated in an unanticipated but necessary c-section (my pelvis ended up being too narrow). I describe it more in the November thread.
And even though it was hard... very hard... I love this little girl and I'd do it all over again for her. She's worth it.
So, dtd w/dh twice last night--a because he surprised me with roses and chocolates, and b because I can't wait to hold my sweet baby! (dtd is Very uncomfortable at this point though lol--39 weeks today) Had mild contractions for a few hours that went away by morning. *sigh* I've been losing bits of mucus plug since Oct. 20th, and often get crampy and random contractions, but it seems my body just wants to do a very long, drawn out warm-up for the real thing. I know she knows best and will come when she is ready, but ooooooohhhhh I am so restless! Loving hearing everyone else's birth stories while I wait for my turn :-)
Our baby was born Monday November 4 at 10:04 a.m. Our 4th boy! It was a pretty quick labor. I felt some pelvic pressure around 5/5:30 a.m. but was not sure if I just had to pee. Then I started having "mild" contractions. At 7 a.m. I told my husband I thought today was the day but I still was not sure. Around 7:30 my 3 year old nursed a bit. Shortly after that I felt some fluid, thought my water broke. When I got up and went to the bathroom I saw that I had a lot of bleeding which made me nervous. Called the midwife, she said it could be normal. She asked if I wanted to stay home a bit or come in to the birth center. I said go in.
We got to the birth center at 8:45 a.m. and I was 8 cm dilated. Got into the tub around 9:10 and he was born at 10:04.
I must admit, the labor was not that bad. Not fun, I don't want to do it again, but I never had too much pain. The pain I did have was always lower uterine, not the entire belly. My second water birth!
His brothers love him and always want to hold him.

He remains whole and intervention free (no Hep b, Vit K, eye ointment or circ). He is so peaceful....born in the presence of mom, dad, midwife and a friend, no one else.
Thanks for letting me share.
