oh! i also wanted to ask..what are you doing for the horrid after pains??? this wil only be my 4th, but i am dreading them MORE than labor!
But make sure that you first make a shirt declaring you part of the Labor Party...
Anyway, whether or not you're able to vote today, this is very exciting! Good luck and ELVs.

Some stuff I like:
oh yay! if you think you have time and the contrcs arent bad youcould put on a depends and still vote lol! (imagine the news media on that! "here is a woman in labor, her water broke 4 hours ago and she is here voting! there's a true american for you!"
Hope things go smoothly EmmaW :
AND you get to vote
That has been my biggest fear, that something would happen so I wouldn't get to vote... we're going to go in a couple of hours when the before-work crowd has had a chance to thin out.
ELVs to you once that ballot's filled out!

I seriously had a dream last night that labor started and I waited till the polls opened and voted before heading to the hospital and I was leaning over the tables and breathing hard and stuff and the news crews were there with the whole, "This woman is in active labor but is here to vote today!"
But......my little girl arrived at 8:20 this morning after 7 1/2 hours of labor. I'll have to post more later. I lost a lot of blood and am having trouble sitting up for very long.
Call your board of elections - maybe they can arrange for someone to come to you under the circumstances?? It's a long shot, but it might work!
