i've been laboring all night. midwife's sleeping on the couch. contractions are currently 3 minutes apart and getting tough. i have never had a normal length labor (mine are usually over in an hour and a half), so this is very new to me.

hoping and praying for a baby by dawn, so we don't have to deal with child care. only a few hours! come on, baby!

i'll keep you posted.

Oh! Serina, I'm so, so excited for you.

I have to admit, I'm a dedicated lurker--in over five years I've posted maybe once before. But your post gave me such a thrill. May the rest of your labor be fun and wonderful. May you be holding your sweet new love just as soon as you're both ready.

Such loving thoughts to you. Can't wait to hear more.

Maybe we'll see two new beautiful babies in here today -- you and JayJay!
