I went back to bed after calling the midwife and slept for a few hours. I'm starting to have harder contractions now, but they aren't coming very frequently yet.

How about you? Today is a good day for babies!

Yay for contrax! I hope that they come closer together!

I'm trying pumping again this morning. Let's see if I have any luck.

Yahoo!
I thought I was this morning.I woke up in a sweat,shaky and off, I thought I was in transition!!!I ate a double breakfast and read with ds1,and it finally went away.My first birth started with transition, and there is no way dh or mw would have gotten here!
I have been cleaning and slurping RRL tea all day,but nothing is picking up yet. Maybe tonight-I always get more at night.I really do not want another night of cramps...unless they're post-partum!

I wish I'd go into labor! With DS, I went into labor at 39 wks 2 days, which would be Thursday for this pregnancy. I feel weird about the idea of that day coming and going with no signs of labor. I know it's normal for every pregnancy to have a different labor timing, but still, it's somehow ingrained in my head that I'm supposed to have the baby now.

SAHM to 6.5yo DS and 4yo DD. PCOS with two early m/cs. Married 8 yrs. Certified birth doula, writer, editor.

NAK!

Anna came yesterday spectacularly. She was born a little less than an hour after regular contractions started. She beat the very startled midwife by about a half an hour, so DH and I delivered her ourselves. It was very very exciting. We're all doing great!

Congratulations Hislittlelambs!!!
