Friday, May 9
1:41am - woke up with strong contractions. I have no problem calling these "painful," even if I know they'll probably get worse. Bloody show.
Called MW, Took a shower.
2:30am - out of shower, dressed.
2:44am - found out sitting through contractions is a BAD idea! Owie!
Lots of rocking and breathing through contractions. MW should be here by 3:00-3:10.

YIPPIE!!!! Prayers for you! Conserve your energy and i suggest doing the RRL infusion if you have it, that got my labor super fast! (1 ounce to 1 pint).

Can't wait to hear about your LO!

Yay for you, anstar!!!
I started having contractions about an hour ago - I'm awake to make some RRL tea infusion, as Mkmama suggested

Happy birthing vibes to you!

I did have two cups of RRL before bed, and one when I woke up.

Ekeziel Edward Toman (Zeke)
8lbs (ish)
born at 6:47am almost exactly 5 hours from when I woke up.

He's happy and healthy, and a fantastic nurser! I'm well, and tired.

Ezekiel - I typed it wrong (and then copy and pasted it everywhere!). My ILs have been razzing me about it for days!
