I know I'm supposed to try and rest but I had to get my jitters to go away first. Anyone up? I'm a little nervous about all the work I have to do in the next few hours/days. Say prayers for us!

Pretty mild contractions, but frequent. Some bloody show too, that's good right? DH and I are way to wired to sleep now. I took a shower and tried to lay down...we're going to either read or try to watch a movie

Aaargh! I am insanely jealous! We share a name and a due date, and your water broke already? I am sending you easy labour vibes, but I'm hoping you'll rub off on me, too. MIL arrives today, so I can have this babe anytime now...and not 8 days late like her sister!

Have a great labour and babymoon.

Andrea, EDD 13th Jan (aka the Andrea due the 13th NOT in labour, pout pout.)

Ooh I'm so glad for you! (and jealous - with dd#1 my water broke at 4:15 a.m. and she was born at 7:45 p.m. Your water broke at 5:45 a.m. and your ds was born at 1:12 p.m. Dang Girl! )

We're looking forward to an update with more details and pictures when it's humanly possible. Enjoy your little fella. Here are some recouperative vibes... :

ETA - I'm curious as to your thoughts later on regarding birth being a doula and now actually having given birth.
