Well, pretty sure that my water has broken, around 3am. Just waiting for contractions to start (have only had a couple since it broke, nothing different from normal!). So excited I can hardly stand it. We aren't telling anyone IRL that I am in labor since few people know about us having an hb. It is such a fun secret to have!!

ps. Today is my due date!!

Be back after this little one comes out to share the goods news!

Kelly

Edit #1 - 5:30pmEST, still nothing going on. h2o definitely broken. Midwife came over but we didn't do an internal check. Just praying for some contractions. I just had about 4 15mins apart but once again, they seem to have stopped. Ugh! Just hoping things get going!

Edit #2 - 11:54pm EST, wonderful home waterbirth! 2.5 hours from 1st contraction until she was out. Be back with a picture and birth story.

Edit #3 - A few pics, birth story to come....http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...4&l=f76b4f5d0a

Edit #4 - Birth Story

2.5 hours! Woohoo! I hope it was a good 2.5 hours and not a "holy crap" 2.5 hours.

Congratulations!

Added some pics to my first post.

Naomi is doing great. I have a feeling it will be along night though as all she wants to do is nurse and my milk isn't in yet.

Sigh, but oh, so worth the sleeplessness!!!
