!!!!!!!!!!!
Peaceful breathing vibes going out to you. I love to think at this moment, as I type, you're moving toward meeting and greeting this little sprout we've been discussing for months!!

I'm also a little jealous!
I wake up every morning now, eager to come on to see what's been happening in the lives of strangers as they prepare to meet their new responsibilities.

Let this be the day, let all go okay...

Lots of love to you and your clan.

Last night when I woke up to pee in the middle of the night, I thought "I need to check the DDC... people are probably having their babies". I guess I was right! Yay & congratulations!!! Can't wait to hear how you and your baby boy are.

Thank you so much for your kindness! Kip Ramsey burst onto the scene at 9:00 last night.

My water broke at 5:30 am and we went to the birth center right away. Hours passed with zero contractions despite being dilated to a 3, 80 % effaced, and at station 0. I tried the usual bag of tricks: stair walking, walking, lunging,breast pump, enema.Nothing. The midwife said we'd have to start pit at 5 pm and I was crushed and confused as to why things were going like this.

It took an hour for the pitocin to bring on a contraction, but then my body did the expected thing and birthed a baby in 2 hours. I'm glad I got an epidural because it took the edge off and kept me from feeling fear from those awful pit contractions. And his hand was up by his face which really made pushing more difficult and the pressure on my pelvis more intense. I tore minimally which is a blessing and my perineum isn't sore at all today. Although it wasn't what I had hoped or expected, this was my favorite of the three births because it was well controlled and I had great support. And holding this little guy is just awesome!
