I'm excited that we are going to have this baby some time fairly soon.... but a little anxious because this is how my first birth went! He ended up coming out asynclytic. I'm losing tons of fluid this time too, last night it was just gushing out... The first time it seemed to seal back up, gotta send DH out for some depends today!
Decided to try and go back to sleep but had enough prelabor contractions to keep me awake. Those stopped around 6 and I did manage to get a little sleep.
Haven't even called midwife yet, going to call her now...

Send me some labor vibes!!!!! I want to go into labor!!!!!!

Still nothing happening.... I have a feeling it won't be until night fall. My other two labors went like this- well not exactly like this.

I'm still leaking a ton, it's such a weird sensation to feel like you're wetting yourself constantly! I guess that means the head hasn't dropped down yet... I'm doing lots of squats and hip circles.

Going to take the kids over to a friend's house right now so DH and I can take a nap- I had just enough prelabor contractions to keep me awake last night since 2 am and DH was up filling the birth tub and doing various things... we are both wiped out.

I did get the birth day cake made though... hopefully I'll get to eat some soon.

Right now I really need some sleep.

Here's a condensed version:
I thought for sure she was going to be born last night but everything petered out and DH and I went to bed all depressed at 10 pm.

I woke up early in the morning to what felt like "productive" contractions but figured they would peter out as well and start up again in the evening. They were starting to get a little more consistent and also "ouchy" my midwife came over and we went back and forth about checking but the clock was ticking.... and I wanted to know if they were actually productive or not, she offered to do a little sweep and again I agreed because I felt like we did need to get things going.
Well, we got things going all right. I still can't believe how fast things went! It was like a freight train birth! I think things really started rolling at 9:30 am and she was born at 10:52 am, my midwife barely made it back. I was a little in denial, so I was hesitant to get in the birth tub too soon but I finally just said screw it and jumped in and next thing I knew I was pushing.
Fortunately I did not tear- not even a skid mark. Thanks to good stretchy skin I haven't torn for any of my births but I was amazed that I didn't tear this time!

Any way- it's a girl!!!!!! :

It wasn't the lovely, peaceful birth I had with DD #1 ( I was screaming and cussing....luckily DS handled it well and DD didn't make it back from preschool in time but she did get to cut the "belly cord", so she's a little disappointed but mostly happy). We are falling in love! She's a sweet little chunky thing. 9lbs and 7 oz and she's nursing just fine! We are still trying to settle on a name. We are researching "Mira".


She also had an interesting placenta but I'll post more later. I'm going to lie down some more and gaze at her
