Congrats! I feel as though loveneverfails should be the one to officially announce the winner, but she is preoccupied. But I think the stool is yours!

So... you've got the stool. Now, use it already!

Congrats to silverspook, the winner of the birthing stool! GO HAVE YOUR BABY! YOU WON ALREADY!

And congrats to our runner-up, loveneverfails, whose daughter Mercy will never live down the guilt of making her mom lose the glorious birthing stool by a hair.

*Takes a bow* Thank you, thank you. I can't say that I'm happy to be the LAST FREAKING PREGO STANDING on this darn island, but at least I have a shiny new stool to show for it, right?

I am packing my bags and looking for the helicopter as I type though. I think the Master Gland is working! Mild contrax started last night & picked up when I got up this morning. They are about 10 mins apart and not grit-your-teeth strong yet, but I'm having lots and lots of pressure with each one. They picked up when DS was napping and have slowed a bit now that he's awake, so I hope things will really get rolling when he goes to bed.

Contractions got really intense last night, then they were sporadic throughout the night and are non-existant this morning. I'm losing faith.

well, you need to have this baby by tomorrow or you're going to have to start this weekly thread and talk to yourself!!

(in seriousness, we could probably go back to one weekly thread)

But I like talking to myself, Rhi! I agree, I guess I'll head on over to the weekly thread...

You're also welcome over in May if you want other pregnoladies for scintillating conversation.

Yeah, scintillating. We can bring it.
