At the hospital. Midwife checked me I'm at 4 so looks like things are progressing. After I get checked in I'm going to walk around a bunch. Had bloody show. And I get one of the tub rooms! Everythings going great.
Smerkin is on her way should be tonight or tomorrow!

Baby GIRL!!!! Arrived at 5:04am on 8/6 after a pretty long labor. Was able to do things completely naturally and my midwife was great. She had a lot of patience with me even though my labor took forever.
Will post more details later. Thanks for all the well-wishes!!
