I am going back to bed. DH insists on staying up and preparing. Please wish me luck and send prayers for holding a healthy babe in my arms soon, for all to go well, hopefully no hemorrhaging or retained placenta (my fears due to last time).

 

I'm going to try to labor at home in familiar comfort for as long as possible, as the hospital is just around the corner. 

 

I have my birthing necklace on already, so I'll have you mamas with me in strength as I labor.

Yeah, so glad that you finally got to labor land. Hope that baby is snuggled up in your arms right now, and that you had a good birth with no complications.
