Well, just wanted to let everyone know (cause I know how much everyone loves these posts) that I am now officially in labor. I've been contracting for the last hour or so regularly and I just lost my mucus plug... exciting!!!

I'll try to have DH or my sister keep this thread updated

Hehehe. You're way cooler than I am, Claudia - you're giving all this groovy labor dust, and I'm just chowing down on popcorn.

Still me.. the contrax are getting stronger and more intense. I remember this happening sooo much more gradually with Kairi. It's funny, the entire pregnancy I've been telling everyone who asks when I'm due "September".... well, it's officially September

Well DH here, Hi!!, and umm its like 1am CST. Everything is now ready and the Momma is laying down for a bit. I'm totally nervous even though we have done a Home Birth before. This is our Fist UC and I can't say how nervous, excited, and scared I am at the same time. Anyways all is going well, we will keep in touch.

Mama here (yea, I keep getting in and out of bed...) I'm vocalizing through some pretty intense contraxand it's starting to feel good to push a bit. Oh... and I'm making the typical back and forth trips to the toilet... which is one of my least favorite parts... gonna drink my RRL tea now.

Oh, I remember those back and forth trips to the bathroom even after all those years! You're so lucky to be having a UC and we're so lucky to have you sharing this special moment with us.

Here's some more wonderful, glorious labor heading your way.

Gavin Roxas was born at 2:45 a.m. on September 1, 2006. He is a happy, healthy, breast-fed, cloth-diapered, intact, unassisted water-born baby boy! Crystal and Gavin are bonding right now experiencing one of his first feedings, and Kairi and Mike are there every step of the way, learning, growing, and bonding with the new baby!
